Here's what coaches from recent year's conferences have said...

"Skip, I want to thank you for helping me finally get to the Jekyll Island Tennis Conference. I have been coaching football and tennis for 30 years. I was pretty well confident in my coaching abilities but wanted to get better as a tennis coach. Being totally immersed in the tennis coaching community for two days was awesome! The fellow high school coaches and professionals worked together to teach and actually do the drills our players can do. I just know that whether a beginning Coach, or an old stubborn guy like me, you will learn and enjoy on court and off court activities.
I can't wait till next year!"
David Strobel, Lamar County High School
