Junior Tennis Academy

The LACOSTE Junior Tennis Academy is a free, annual tournament-training program for talented NYC juniors.

Fifty players between the ages of 8 -16 are selected at open tryouts held each May at the USTA BJK National Tennis Center. In the fall, 25 players continue from October – April based on sportsmanship, attendance, on-court performance and financial need.

By providing free year-round coaching, practice time and tournament sponsorship, the Academy helps to defray the high cost of advanced tennis training so dedicated juniors in NYC have an equal opportunity to realize their potential. Since the program’s inception, hundreds of juniors have earned college tennis scholarships and USTA sectional and national rankings, including several standouts who have competed in the US Open!
