This page contains information on our Junior Tournament-level Drills and NOW. Junior Tournament-level Drills are designed specifically for competitve junior players who consistentlycompete in sanctioned tournaments, which means they must compete in tournaments at least once every 6 weeks. For the 2015-2016 school year, these drills kick off Monday, August 24th and run through May 27, 2016. Participants must be approved by Coach Duey Evans.
The name says it all. Junior players will participate in live and fed drills. Most of the drills are situational and many are competitive. Some of the time will be spent in cooperative exercises in order to hone the skills necessary for greater success in all forms of competition.
Drills are held Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. You can register your child to attend every day, 3 times per week, twice a week or just drop in (register/pay online).
Drop in: $35 per day (register/pay online via calendar section of this site)
2 days per week: $250 per month
3 days per week: $350 per month
Every day: $425 per month
At this level, drills cannot be the sole area of training. A junior player’s regiment should also consist of regular private lessons, hitting lessons and competition.

NOW is not an acronym; rather it is a program led by someone (Duey Evans) with a history of developing national level junior players, yet absolutly focused on the current group of players he’s coaching. The program uses all the knowledge Duey’s gained over 25+ years of working with motivated players helping them reach their goals as well as anything he learns from today forward. NOW uses all the resources available to Midcourt Tennis Academy, from court space to video analysis technology to speed, strength and agility training protocols and so much more. At times, all participants will be doing the same thing while at other times working on very different things. Duey’s focus will always be on what he believes the individual needs to work on at that moment (NOW) to reach their goals fastest.
NOW is available to girl players (with birth years 2001 – 2005) keenly focused on moving forward to beat players they’ve previously lost to while continuing to beat those they’ve bested before. In order to join NOW, those interested and their parents must go through an interview with Duey and be committed to participating through May 2015.
The program runs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 pm and also includes 4 private lessons each month. The cost: $1050 per month. NOW runs regardless of weather.
– Fees for drills/NOW will be charged on the 21st of each month for the next month, and there is a one-time $25 registration fee for the school year. Monthly fees are non-refundable and you must notify us in writing by the 20th of the month if your child will stop participating in the drills in order to stop payment for the next month.
– When weather becomes an issue, drill cancellation will be posted on the home page of this website. There are no scheduled makeups for weather cancellations; your child can simply attend drills on another day that same week.
– Your child should arrive 10-15 minutes early in order to do their warm-up so that drills can begin at top of the hour. Please respect the coach and others in the class by having your child here on time.
