Led by 2020 Missouri Valley High Performance Coach of the Year, Paul Lucas, hosted at the 2020 Missouri Valley Facility of the Year, Forest Lake, and 2022 USTA St. Louis member organization of the year
Forest Lake Tennis Academy was developed to provide future opportunities for junior tennis players to reach their full potential in the high-level tournaments and/or playing for a college tennis program. The coaches sculpt the tennis athlete as a whole as we help them progress technically, tactically, mentally, and physically. Whether a student aspires to be a competitive tournament player, play on a college tennis program and receive scholarship, or compete on the professional tour; we create a personalized track for each student based on their tennis aspirations.
For the juniors to compete at increasingly high standards, we feel it is necessary for all of our juniors to play more matches, continue to develop their mental strength on court, and improve their fitness through academy clinics and private lessons. In order for the juniors to be able to accomplish all of this while maintaining high levels of academic achievement, we feel that all juniors should participate in at least two hours a day in our four day program as well as additional lessons and tournaments to reach their top potential. To participate in the Forest Lake Tennis Academy, students must be a member of Forest Lake Tennis Club and be invited.
