10 & 10 & Under Academy Director / Academy Coordinator
Steve was born in New Rochelle, Westchester back in 1991. Most of Steve’s tennis years were spent in the country club environment by the Long Island sound beaches in New Rochelle. There is where he met his first official tennis coach (Cesar Andrade) and began falling in love with the sport of tennis.
After captaining the New Rochelle High School team through his senior year, Steve began working part time as an administrative assistant through the indoor season for Cesar’s junior program of 800+ junior students and was teaching 10&Under programs during the summers from 2009-2011.
Seeing that Steve not only handled his tasks well over the years but had a charisma that was natural and engaging with the 10&Under students, Steve was offered a role as Assistant Director for Summer Camp in 2011.
Steve had administrative oversight of the camp but also was in charge of the teaching staff for the 10&Under program, he excelled at this role. It was obvious that Steve had gained the skills to manage a staff and began creating curriculums for his 10&Under programs, by 2012 he was the 10&under Director at Sportime, Mamaroneck.
Over the last 2 years he has developed the ability to lead and ensure what we call perfection within 10 & under tennis programming. Tennis Innovators Academy is proud of Steve’s accomplishments and is sure that he is the right Director to inspire our youngest athletes to fall in love the sport of tennis.
