RPTA - SUMMER PROGRAMS
For the summer, the RPTA will be operating summer Academies in both Charleston, SC and Winston-Salem, NC.
CHARLESTON @ LTP
In Charleston, the hours are 9-4 Monday - Friday. All Winston summer passes are transferable to the Charleston program if we receive payment by May 1st. The Charleston rate is $3000 for the summer and $525/week so take advantage of this opportunity to train for a reduced rate!
Live To Play with the RPTA
If you are interested in Charleston programs this summer, Academy begins June 6th and runs through August 18th.
The program will include:
dynamic stretching and coordination drills to start the day
morning drills focus on live ball offensive and defensive patterns, shot selection and strategy, finishing with our famous speed singles drills
lunch is from 11:30-1:00- lunch orders will be taken in the morning for the kids that don't bring their own or do not drive.
afternoons will include service work along with a number of different drills to help the players broaden their service game
singles match play (pros helping with shot selection, game style and strategy) and our college double drills (kids favorite!) will round out the afternoon on the courts
day ends with a basic yoga stretch session
available to full-time Academy students
This program is designed for tournament players only. A lot of our drills will be college level and require a certain level of proficiency.
Before clinic begins, there will be an optional 8 AM beach workout each morning. Each coach will have one day and players will have fun competing in sprint, agility, and distance workouts. This extra hour is a great plus to show college coaches your level of commitment during the recruiting process! If you are interested in more advanced yoga, a class will be taught each day from 4-4:30.
And there's more...We will have different coaches from colleges across the country coming in to observe our players. The only request is that the coaches show us their favorite doubles drills! These days are always the kid's favorites! This past year, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, University of Alabama, Penn State, Pepperdine, Indiana University, University of Tennessee, and Furman took part in this program - to name a few!
In Winston, the hours are 9-4 Monday - Thursday. The summer pass is described above and the weekly rate in Winston is $350. John Worsley is busy working on the staff that will be teaching here this summer!
Summer tuition is due by May 1st.
Payment received on or before the 1st - $1650
Payment received after May 1st - $1750.

We would also like to congratulate Bennett on his recent commitment to Indiana University. Bennett will join the Hoosiers' team in the fall of 2016. In addition to Indiana, Bennett was recruited by Wake Forest University, the University of North Carolina, NCSU, Virginia Tech, Pepperdine, University of Alabama, University of South Carolina, Harvard and Columbia University.
"The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less"
