He is also a USPTA certified professional and a member of the Head Advisory staff. Prior to coming to the Racquet Club of Irvine he played for UC Riverside where he was nationally ranked in singles and doubles for 3 years. Jason has worked with some of the top internationally ranked wheelchair tennis players. Over the years, he has also worked with new players of all ages, 3 ½ to 85, on basic stroke and footwork fundamentals. He keeps his lessons fun, informative, and teaches the concept of “keep it simple”. Jason sees that many players make the game much more complex and harder than it needs to be. With more competitive players, he excels in doubles strategy; as well as advanced footwork and stroke technique. Jason teaches a classic stroke with the goal of longevity in the sport for years to come with exuberance and enthusiasm both on and off the court. Jason teaches privates, semi-privates, and group lessons. His students find their clinics very productive because Jason keeps his clinics at a 4 to 1 student/ration.
