At OSSA Tennis Academy, we are striving for human excellence for all of our athletes. Striving for human excellence is our focus-- not the titles.
Our promise to the athlete is that we will treat you and your tennis with respect. We are firm but fair in our coaching. Each player will be challenged and open communication between player and coach is essential for this partnership to have longevity.
We will not boast about resumes or past accomplishments because we do not believe that helps you today. We will set goals, as a team, for your competitive pathway that will be clearly defined and realistic to our vision and resources.
The Spencer Liang Sportsmanship Award is given out annually to the academy's most deserving player.
OSSA Tennis Academy prides itself with producing tennis champions who demonstrate self-control, integrity and solid character on the court. This has been the case with OSSA players for more than 25 years and we intend to continue that trend for the next 25 years.
The Mid-Atlantic Section recognizes one junior girl and one junior boy every year for good sportsmanship and representation of our section. In 2010, the award was renamed the Paul Goldstein USTA/Mid-Atlantic Sportsmanship Award and its first recipient was Spencer Liang and, the following year, Arnav Dhingra was awarded this prestigious honor. To date, Liang has been awarded 6 national sportsmanship awards and was also named the 2013 recipient of the Bill Talbert Hall of Fame Sportsmanship Award that was presented during inductions at the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island. These individuals and the principles each player represents are the true essence of OSSA Tennis Academy.
