The #1 Academy in the Ottawa Gatineau Area.

My goal has always been to enable every player to maximize his or her potential while building all the right techniques and allowing the player to develop their own style. My goal is to provide our juniors with world-class coaching and training which will allow them to get the most out of their tennis. Become a city, provincial or national champion, get a tennis scholarship to the US and play with the best in the world.

Our Philosophy is to Respect ALL!! Fear None!!
Players respect our coaches; coaches respect our players.
Love tennis, be passionate.
Work as a team to establish goals, work hard, accomplish goals, all in a positive, nurturing environment.

Our vision is to build a true lifetime sport and education project for student-athletes. Our tennis-study program will enable our students to combine intensive training sessions and tournaments with an adapted school curriculum.

WHY NTA?

And why you will succeed here:

QUALIFIED AND PROFESSIONAL TENNIS STAFF

Passionate and methodical coaches give players the ideal setting for a full training program. Students are supervised on caring staff.

The welfare of each and every student is our priority.

To excel in both academics and athletics we invest in quality time for the well-being of our students.

METHOD & TAILORED SESSIONS

Customized training for each player. The Academy’s method focuses on reinforcing the individual’s strengths. Armed with self-confidence the player can work on improving the weak aspects of his/her game. Trust is a very important factor and we absolutely need to create and maintain a trusting environment between the coaches and players. Customized training is the only way one can progress. Coaches rely on their technical, tactical and mental skills to adapt to the player’s needs.

PHYSICAL PREPARATION & RECOVERY

From injury prevention to focusing on specific physical attributes and exercises, we test and analyze the profile of each player to activate a working plan which answers the needs of each player. Our players are fortunate to benefit from our partnership with Arthur Cuenco of Pro Physio and Sport Medicine.

HIGH-LEVEL PERFORMANCE

NTA will be working on a partnership with Daniel Nestor and Jesse Levine to bring world-class clinics to Ottawa which will not only help them gain much knowledge for the game, but give the kids a source of inspiration by being immersed in a unique world of high performance.

TOURNAMENT SUPERVISION

Supervision is provided to our student-athletes at tournaments throughout the season. Our coaches observe and encourage our players in every match, which enables a better understanding of the player and therefore a better follow-up of the goals set for the season. A precise debrief pre- and post-match is provided by the coach.

We will also travel as a team to many tournaments. We will also have fundraisers to reduce some of the costs that are associated with travelling out of town.

SCHOLARSHIP USA

With NTA experience, we will help with US scholarship placement service. This is a successful pathway for our students who get to live and study for at least 4 years in the USA and play in a very high level championship (the NCAA, NAIA, junior college). Without a doubt, the scholarship USA program is the best way to pursue a high level sports project while benefiting from an intensive training structure and a top level education.
