ACE Toronto New Partnership with Striation 6 Exercise and Performance Centre
We are excited to welcome in a new era of fitness training at ACE Toronto. Effective September 2017 Brad Thorpe and his team from Striation 6 Exercise and Performance Centre will oversee the fitness training division at our Toronto facility.
With over 25 years in the sports performance and personal training industries Brad has consulted with the Toronto Blue Jays, Volleyball Canada Centre of Excellence, Hockey Canada's Program of Excellence, Pakmen Volleyball Club, University of Toronto's Family and Community Medicine Program, and the Stop Concussions Foundation. In addition to his consultant work, Brad's methods are used by a number of professional athletes competing in the NBA, MLB, NFL, UFC, FIVB and the NCAA as well as a number of Team Canada and Provincial Team athletes.
Irfan is no longer coaching at ACE Toronto and will continue to coach at the Granite Club. We would like to thank Irfan for his great work here at Toronto Tennis City and wish him all the best in his coaching career.
We will host a meeting for parents and coaches in our competitive stream on Wednesday, October 11th from 7-8pm at Toronto Tennis City so that parents can get to know the coaches, our philosophy and goals for the year, and to ask any questions you may have.
Our bubble will be going up from
Sept 30th-October 6th. This means that we will not have
access to the courts during this time and will use this time to provide additional fitness training and fitness and tennis education for the players in the competitive stream. Players in the International Team will play tennis at Davisville Tennis Club that week. Please bring your son/daughter to training at their regular times that week as it is an equally important part of their year long training program.
