Marc Moreira is one of current academy students. Marc joined us at Mills Field almost one year ago and practices with us 4 hours a week in clinic. He works extra hard in private lessons and is a current player in our junior team tennis team. Marc was awarded $500.00 from the Youth Tennis Foundation/ USTA Junior Team Tennis Award. This scholarship money will go towards helping to pay for his lessons and clinics at the St. Johns Tennis Academy. He is one of the first students at Saint Johns Tennis Academy to acquire this scholarship.
Marc started out as a U14 beginner player last season. His team acquired first place in the local U14 beginner league so next season he will compete in the next level for U14 intermediate. Marc will be successful in tennis not only because of his dedication to clinics and private lessons but because he possess a network of family who encourages him and cheers for him when he plays in tournaments and practices in lessons. Family support is so important to any child who dedicates his/her time to one sport and wants to become a great athlete.
