SUMMER CAMP INCLUDES: Customizable Programs, Private Instruction, Fitness, Tournament Team, and Mental Toughness Training. Players are welcome to take advantage of our BOARDING >> or Non-Boarding options. International students welcome. Space is limited, sign-up today.
PRIVATE LESSONS >>
I (Kevin Jackson) am the primary coach for private instruction for all players training full-time. Players with outside coaching relationships are welcome, however, all development management is overseen by me.
My first task is to evaluate the player, technically, tactically, mentally, and physically (strength, endurance/stamina, mental resilience). After a thorough evaluation a preliminary plan is designed, and implemented. As a phase two the plan is refined to match the players goal based on their aptitude.
SMALL GROUP TRAINING >>
The SHOQ small group sessions are unique in that we don’t take a lot of breaks, and the players are expected to perform at capacity. Most new players don’t expect to be pushed, as most programs in the area not very demanding. Our goal is to work hard daily to achieve a peak performance level. So all players have to contribute the group by putting in the effort.
PRACTICE MATCHES >>
Our goal is to have the full-time players compete daily with specific goals in mind. We are looking to invite players for matches and sets so our full-time group can play at least 8-10 sets a week. The players will be encouraged to log sets and record observations to begin the process of recognizing patterns of play. I will be reviewing the logs with the players to monitor development habits.
FITNESS TRAINING >>
We don’t just talk about fitness we emphasize it. My players are expected to adhere to a rigorous fitness training schedule. A minimum of four days of weekly fitness is part of all full-time player plans. Sessions include flexibility for injury prevention, agility, balance, strength, and speed training.
Additionally, the players will be required to take a quarterly physical exam which includes, blood and genetic analysis, nutrition and supplementation testing, and overall bio-metric evaluations.
Our primary provider is ICL Academy, an accredited online school. ICL Academy makes an innovative and personalized online private school accessible and affordable to all.

My view of tournament competition is to use it as an measurement of development. Players are encouraged to compete as often as possible, however, as long as it does not interfere with the long term development plan. The full-time players training schedule will allow for competition blocks.
It is my personal belief that most players begin heavy competition schedules too early in their careers, and miss the opportunity for high level skills development. However, Southern California has every tournament level available – Open, National, ITF, WTA, ATP, and UTR tournaments.
Over the years I have had many students transition from junior tennis with colleges scholarships. I’ve established relationships with college coaches all over the country, and I have a reputation for developing players that are an asset to their coaches and teams. My full-time players will be marketed to the schools we select, as we build a solid resume.
Academy students and graduates have gone on to top colleges and universities including TCU, Berkeley, UC Davis, NAU, Quinnipiac, Columbia, Brown, Texas A&M, UCLA, Air Force, Loyola, Alabama, UC Irvine, USC, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, Claremont, Toledo, and Westmont.
