Racquet Sports Director
Michael teaches his students the modern sport of tennis, which embraces the body’s natural mechanics. In his more than 20 years of experience coaching students of all ages and levels of play, he’s kept up with the latest research, teaching methods, and play styles used by the most successful players, coaches, and organizations around the world. In Michael’s words: ‘If you’re new to the game, I will help you quickly develop a solid foundation for this life-long sport. If you’re a seasoned veteran who hasn’t taken a lesson in a couple of years, I will modernize your game. If you play recreationally, you’ll enjoy how natural the modern game feels. And if you play competitively, you’ll enjoy the massive advantage these skills will give you.’
Jana started playing at around 7 years of age. It was one of a few sports she played as a kid; her parents signed her up for group lessons at the local community center and she started competing not long after that. Jana played professionally for about 10 years and was ranked as high as 64 in the world. She played in the Australian, French, and US Opens as well as Wimbledon. She also represented Canada in the 1996 Olympics and Fed Cup Competition. Jana isn’t new to teaching. She has taught tennis for many years and shares that “I enjoy meeting and getting to know everyone that walks on my court. It’s the best feeling when my students get excited about their overall improvement or about being able to do something they couldn’t do before.”
