WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Helping develop young champions.
On and off the court.

Led by Stan Smith, former number-one player in the world and former USTA Director of Coaching, Billy Stearns, one of the world’s top coaches, and B.J. Stearns, former top nationally and internationally ranked player and Academy Director, the Smith Stearns Tennis Academy is uniquely designed for individual junior player development. The Academy is within one of the top-rated resorts in the country, The Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

The academy was founded in 2002 to help prepare junior athletes for the highest level of competition possible in both collegiate and professional tennis. We promote a family atmosphere of intense training, camaraderie, and fun. The Smith Stearns approach speaks for itself as we have developed numerous state, sectional, national, and international champions over the years, as well as having one of the strongest college placement programs in the country.

Under Stan, Billy, and BJ’s leadership, a staff of highly qualified coaches specifically trained in the Smith Stearns approach work one-on-one with committed young people to help them reach their full potential as players.

Supervised housing and an excellent college preparatory school curriculum help the students develop further – as scholars, as citizens and as young adults.

In contrast to the dormitory housing at many tennis academies, Smith Stearns provides two single-family homes, each with full-time supervision by resident house parents. We aim to promote a family style atmosphere – a true home away from home. House parents provide transportation, do laundry and cook meals – in addition to providing caring supervision and guidance.
