(College Park, Md.) December 11 – The Junior Tennis Champions Center (JTCC), the world-class tennis training center in College Park, Md., today announced that they are in the midst of a nationwide search to add the next great wave of American tennis coaches to their award-winning tennis program. The search coincides with the departure of Senior Directors Patricia Hy-Boulais and Yves Boulais.
“We at JTCC are excited to expand our program and add additional staff that will provide our players with the mentoring and coaching that makes them the best in the nation,” said Vesa Ponkka, Senior Director of Tennis at JTCC. “We are sad to see Patricia and Yves leave, but thank them for their contributions to our program.”
Boulais will leave JTCC at the end of December to take the executive teaching position at Team Canada Tennis Federation, though he will also continue to serve as private coach of Alison Riske, who is currently No. 57 in WTA rankings. Hy-Boulais will resign her position at JTCC in early February.
“We are dedicated to providing our players with the skills and education that they need to succeed both on and off the court,” said Ray Benton, CEO of JTCC. “Our players are on the top of their games and we are looking for coaches to join our team that will help us continue to improve our world class program and inspire our players to excel.” This year, JTCC was named 2013 Facility & Organization of the Year by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
JTCC hopes to announce new coaching hires in early 2014. For additional information on programs and the coaching staff, please visit www.jtcc.org.
