Academy Programs

“Rick Macci body of work is legendary and unmatched in the past 30 years” - Los Angeles Times

3d_tennisRMTA is conveniently located at the luxurious Boca Lago Country Club in Boca Raton, Florida. The Macci Academy is a very personalized program… it is not a factory. Each day students receive individual instruction with a small student/pro ratio for drilling, point play, group fitness and athletic enhancement.

Often the student will play the coaches in points and matches! A BIG key to Junior Development is playing matches and competing daily. All students, depending on the skill level, will compete each and every day in sets and matches. Sometimes the matches will be supervised and sometimes the players will be on their own and duplicate a tournament environment. This is a HUGE key to handling pressure and delivering when it counts most…in matches!


 

Academy Professionals

ALL academy professionals are USPTA certified with a diverse background for every level of player development. All RMTA professionals share the same Macci teaching philosophy and all the pros are available for private lessons outside of the Academy schedule.

HOME SCHOOLING

gabby_rick_red_newRMTA provides a variety of excellent educational options to suit the individual needs of our students. We supervise Virtual Schooling with a fully accredited NCAA-approved middle and high school curriculum on site at RMTA. This Virtual School program is recommended for our full time middle and high school students because it is conveniently supervised on our premises and is individually tailored to each students needs. (NOTE: Since virtual schooling is not offered in all states, parents are advised to contact their school district directly to verify that it is offered by your state.) Additionally, a more traditional education experience is available through partnerships with other local public and private institutions.
