About us

Our Academy based programs are taking a break for 2020. Director and Founder of the Academy Jeff Schneider will be working with Taiyo Yamanaka's (Top 100 ITF Junior) as his fulltime tour coach. In Jeff's absence we have decided for 2020 to close our teaching base at Sanctuary Cove Rec Club. We are disappointed that we will no longer be able to train our academy athletes but we will offer a mentoring role in 2020 to keep track of their progress and help where ever we can.
