Integrated Training + Academic Program
ACADEMIC YEAR 2018–2019
Designed for USTA/ITF players in grades 5–12 and postgraduates, RSTA is the first in the New York City area to have a full academic program with a complete physical and mental conditioning program. In addition, unlike other tennis academies, RSTA is a small, intimate program that allows student-athletes to develop lasting relationships with coaches while receiving personalized instruction. Students who attend the Academy experience high-performance tennis training while studying alongside their peers in a stimulating college preparatory learning community following a regular academic year.
After School Programs

Players in kindergarten and higher are required to play twice per week.
