From elite athletic training camps to free-form play spaces, Sarasota Sports Club gives families numerous kid-friendly options, and kids an ideal springboard to success. A top location in the international tennis training nexus of Florida, the club has deep connections to the area's history of producing top players, and a fresh new vision for producing future winners both on and off the court.

Sarasota Sports Club's Elite Academy Program is led by Sekou Bangoura, whose credentials include years working with International Tennis Hall of Fame member Nick Bollettieri, formative training for Slam winners, and a coach-mentor relationship with son Sekou Jr., a US boys 18 champion and rising ATP pro. Bekoura teams up with Tennis Director and former NCAA singles champion Andrew Burrow, General Manager and former ATP pro Denys Maasdorp, and Junior Development Pathway Development Head Pro Julio Moros (cofounder of the renowned IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy) to strengthen and sharpen every aspect of a young player's game.

Based on the site's 19-court tennis complex, the Elite Academy Program presents both summer and full-time options. They're united by an emphasis on diverse instructional drilling (groundstrokes, approach shots, volleys, and overheads), serve and return-of-serve practice, match play, mental toughness and strategy sessions, fitness training, and a core dedication to learning. Each day's schedule is supplemented by meals, recreational activities, and rest times, and an overnight boarding option is also available to summer program students.

Led by Julio Moros, the Junior Development Pathway Program provides developing young players with fun, high-energy tennis instruction and an effectively structured route to elite performance. The program's level-based system is open to everyone from tiny tots receiving their tennis introduction on through to teenagers honing their game. Kids begin by developing hand-eye coordination and group cooperation, move on to the game's fundamentals, and eventually hone their technique and competitive strategies in preparation for high school and USTA tournament competition.

In addition to standout tennis camps for kids, Sarasota Sports Club is also home to a Summer Sport Camp that presents a well-rounded array of athletic activities, with an emphasis on learning, fun, and safety. Kids get to swim and play tennis, soccer, and basketball, all in a single day. Last but not least, the club's young members have a zone of their own thanks to the well-equipped kids rec center, a separate hangout that compliments the camp activities and junior programs.
