Junior Development Program
Misa Tennis Academy offers specially designed curriculum for developing juniors which aim to teach in fun and challenging manner while addressing the student's social and total development.
In line with the ITS System, Martin's approach is a practical step-by-step personalized instruction which is “child-centered” not subject centered where emphasis is on object lessons learned from the tennis experience that acquaint the young with realities of life.
This means that the stages of athletic training must be related to the stages of the youth's development - lessons where the child is given a positive experience which can be used as a spring-board to future activities. 'Athletes First': winning is secondary to the value of satisfaction gained from the player's self-improvement.
ITS MMTA is housed at the Subic Bay International Tennis Center in Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Philippines. The center boasts nine tennis courts (center court, 2 show courts, 4 covered courts, and 2 clay courts).
