Coach Mike is no stranger to OSSA Tennis Academy as he's one of our recent graduates. Mike played college tennis at Christopher Newport University and he's now studying to become a teacher at the University of Maryland.
Mike joins OSSA to help run our Competition Team, Championship Team and Developmental Team practices at all locations. "As a coach, I provide a style of coaching that is challenging while also encouraging enjoyment of the sport. Through my time as a player, I've trained at many different academies and I use many of the different methods and coaching styles from my past coaches on the court."
"Mike was a junior player at OSSA during his high school years. One thing we specialize in is helping players make that transition from younger age groups to older age groups, and place them in college tennis programs. Even though Mike joined the program late in his development, his positive influence on the coaches and other players really made an impact-- we feel he's been in the program for much longer than the high school years! We are thrilled to add him to the team." --Vince Pulupa
