Rippner High Performance

All High Performance players, including Futures, are encouraged to read blog post written by the Director of High Performance, Steve Cobb. These blog post help better familiarize each player with the vocabulary used during each training session. Along with addressing important strategies, technical parts of the game, mental toughness and health topics. All post can be read at www.SteveCobbTennis.com.

Coaching Philosophy:

All athletes are not the same. Body types, mindsets, and skill sets are all different, therefore teaching and training needs individualization to be fully effective. 

We do not create robots, but individuals with unique expertise. Our tested training system maximizes development across a broad spectrum of styles and strengths. However, all players need to develop the skills to play on all parts of the court in order to capitalize on the opportunities their personal style will create.

Tennis teaches many valuable life lessons which serve to make young players who are not just champions on the court, but champions in life. We develop young people for whom the development of tennis skills is concurrent with learning confidence and humility, integrity and responsibility, and personal pride and discipline. These are trained as  equal elements in creating the whole athlete.
