For any young aspiring junior player who has dreams of reaching the tour level, what more could one hope for than to be coached and mentored by a current professional tour player, who happens to also have the experience of being a mother of two children. Whom better to learn from than one who has and is currently doing the real thing both on and off the court.

Currently we know of no other program in the world that can offer such a unique and personalized environment, of which has the current real world proven results and experience that Heath and Lindsay provide their players.  We understand this is a unique time in our own lives and children’s lives. We know the next 15 years are the prime years of our coaching lives, hence this is why we are very selective in whom we accept into our program.

If you are a parent and have a child that you would like to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to realize their full potential both on and off the tennis court, we encourage you to contact us here.
