Saddlebrook Hopman Tennis Youth Program Review Summary: Excellent.
Two children, a female 15 and male 16 attended the program in the spring of 2012, the former, first time, for a week, the later, third visit, for two weeks. Under the direction of Larry and Howard More, the program consists of skilled coaching, and a balance of hard work and making the exercise fun for the kids. All the coaching staff is highly trained and effective. The continuity is impressive; many of the coaches have been there for 5 to 10 years. This appears to be a professional career, not a job, to the coaches. Complimenting the instruction, the leadership is keenly focused on the abilities of each child and provides reports to the parents on needs, progress and attitude.
From making the first reservation to the children returning home, the administration is responsive, clear, organized, and pleasant. There is the sense that the children are safe at all times, from being picked-up at the airport to on-campus supervision. The facilities, food, rooms, courts, pool, extra curricular activities are excellent. The social dynamic is positive as well. The kids returned home having made new friends.
In summary, the Saddlebrook Hopman tennis youth program is recommended positively. A safe, comfortable, professional, tennis experience was provided to our daughter and son.
