Stephen Diaz Junior Tennis Academy - Harrison Tennis Center is the home base for the Stephen Diaz Junior Tennis Academy. Stephen has been one of the top junior development coaches in Atlanta for many years and Harrison is very proud to have him and SDTA on board. SDTA's coaching philosophy is based on putting the athlete first, while putting major emphasis on performance rather than outcome.  Coaches focus on helping young players reach their maximum potential as people through a commitment to excellence in tennis.  SDTA considers the long-term welfare and happiness of players should be valued more than the results of rewards of the moment. Founded in 1996, SDTA's emphasis on small group programs and personal attention has helped develop some of the best junior players in the region. One of our main goals as SDTA coaches is to personalize the development of players based on their talent and individual needs.  We focus on teaching students how to develop an all-round game and help them understand all the different aspects of tennis in order to become a complete player.

At SDTA, training hard and training smart is what they all about. In order to maximize each player's potential, SDTA focuses on the following:

  • Fundamentals of technique
  • Singles & doubles strategy
  • Physical conditioning & mental toughness
  • Supervised match play
  • Tournament warm-up & coaching

Our low coach-to-student ratio, affordable program, and strong relationships with both students and parents are what make SDTA unique among tennis academies. If you would like to get more information on SDTA contact Stephen Diaz at Harrison Tennis Center (770-591-3151)
