11082298_10153330544752074_3652222687901946789_oA note from Coach Scotty about his experience...

Started my 30th year coaching tennis. Began a small tennis academy 18 years ago. Since 2001 I've brought in full time players from 35 nations & 18 states. Every player has lived in my house, as family. My Jr players have been #1 B18 Greece, #1 B18 USA, #1 B18 Ukraine, #1 G18 Ukraine, #1 B18 Jamaica, #1 B18 Bahamas, #1 B18 Ghana, #1 G18 Samoa, #1 B18 Nigeria.. and 5 more #1 players. There have been many, many #2-#10. I've coached two dozen WTA pro players. My top WTA player ...went on to reach #43 singles, beat 4 top 10 WTA players, and made it to the 4th round US Open. I had started coaching her after she had retired and was suicidal. Rebuilt that kid from the inside out. She now is married. and has birthed two amazing children.

I've placed my players in every level of college in America on tennis scholarships. They have become attorneys, accountants, teachers, one is a medical doctor and another is in medical school, coaches, politicians. My students from the 80s are now grandparents. My students have competed in pro matches in over 25 nations, in every Grand Slam, in Davis and Fed Cup, and have reached top 5 NCAA singles. Each of these players had lived with me full time, as family.

I've had over 1,500,000 hours of player management and development at 10 players x 24 hrs x 365 x 18 yrs. My eyes have seen well over 3,000,000 tennis balls being hit by my players. As such, I see anyone's strokes in slow motion and I generally see what other coaches can't. I've been successful at not going bankrupt in the worst economy in modern history, and have one of the few tennis academies in the USA that has never declared bankruptcy. I've earned over $1,500,000 and I've put it all back into discipleship and missions. My treasure is being stored in Heaven, not here. In my house I've been able to thread the needle of blending cultures, religions, and skill levels of players from around the globe.. and creating common bonds and lifelong connections.

I've built a global membership of Christians in 3000+ cities in 80+ nations. My mission trips have reached 2,000,000+ tennis fans from 120+ nations. I've sent missions teams over 650,000 miles worldwide reaching world class athletes from 75+ nations. My ministry's Facebook has reached over 300,000 weekly from up to 100 nations for dozens and dozens of weeks during busy seasons. My website has reached 1,000,000s over the years.. and I seldom update it. I've connected with nearly every tennis industry company, have impacted players you see on TV, and am known as Coach Scotty to over 3000 tennis players in Egypt.. of which I am maybe most proud of.

So, now you know.
I do have experience.
And, I'm only 49.
All that I've done is simply a warmup.
I have just began learning to hear from God.
Everything in me is ready to go Home.
Yet, everything in Him is why I stay.
In case you've wondered.. Pastor or Player..
Yes, I've got game.
And, i can bring the heat.
I'm just getting warmed up...

Coach Scotty :)

World class tennis training in a Christian leadership development atmosphere!

UITA philosophy shares that tennis training is "live ball."  This means the ball is constantly in motion.  Athletes never stand in lines waiting to hit a tennis ball! During  twice daily tennis workouts, each player can expect to hit 2000+ tennis balls daily during drills & match play. 

Industry-wide most full time tennis academy students hit just 200-400 balls daily. Because of our industry-leading small group focus, our players can expect 5-10 times more than the industry standard for improvement!

Our discipleship training focuses on Christian leadership skills development, apologetics, and missions outreach planning. All students have the opportunty to learn the uncompromising leadership skills taught by Jesus, learn how to prove & defend the validity of the Bible, and learn how to plan & implement a local, national, or international missions outreach.

UITA is a ministry program designed to insire coaches, parents, players globally.

Ultimate Impact Tennis Academy maintains its dedication to remain a discipleship environment.  Each athelete, parent, coach, federation official, etc... benefits from focused, individualized attention designed to help them maximize their potential both on and off the tennis court.

Tennis teaching pros & high-performance tennis academy coaches, parents of world class pro & junior tennis players, and our current & former students have called our tennis environment among the finest in the world.

Glad to introduce you to Tyra and Ali! 

At 13 years of age, Ali is considered by some to be the world’s top female 14 & Under junior tennis player.  Her Mom and Dad have done a GREAT job developing/coaching her.  I'm not sure if she is the world's best, as China and Russia have some incredible kids her age, but I can see Ali developing into a top 200 WTA player by 16 years of age. Tyra is Ali’s sister. She is 10 years of age showing the same potential! Wonderful for God to lead them to spend time hanging out and training with us. I look forward sharing more about them with you in the coming months as we see what God has planned in their lives!!

God bless!  Coach Scotty
