The following are testimonials from some of my students and parents:     

We have worked with many coaches and programs, but not one coach has connected with my daughter Gabby in a coach-to-player situation like John and his team has. Not only because of his personality but because of his belief in his technique and his teaching methods. I believe there is not another academy in the area that gets the job done like the Edge. We are thankful to John and his team for shaping and molding Gabby into the player that she has become... Karen Brutman, Newport Beach, CA

With one year of private lessons and clinics with John Craig and The Edge Academy, my daughter has transformed her tennis skills and game to the #1 Starter on the Junior Varsity Team at St Margaret's High School. John's teaching and coaching has made all the difference in my daughter's tennis game. I have been so impressed with The Edge Tennis Academy, that I do recommend this academy to all of my friends and their children. They have taught her strategy, sportsmanship, technique and foundation principles. We are grateful to have world class instruction in our own backyard...Irene Martino, Corona Del Mar, CA 

Our daughter started playing tennis without any focus on technique.  John and his team worked with her on the basics, and have developed our daughter into a highly technical player.  In an environment where everyone is a power hitter, the technical parts of the game are usually overlooked.  The Edge program fills that void.  I don’t know of any player that can afford not to work with the Edge Academy... Suzette Mann, Newport Coast, CA

I choose to drive 40 minutes one-way multiple times a week to Newport Beach so that my son can attend the Edge Tennis Academy. I do this solely because the quality of tennis instruction provided by John and Edge is one of the very best, and they are a class apart... Sunil Joishy, Aliso Viejo, CA 

We are forever grateful to John and Iain for shaping our daughter's tennis skills. Hours of learning every detail of the game and hard work made Elena one of the top players on Corona Del Mar High School Varsity Team.  She has acquired the refinement that players rarely have. She loves the game. As a matter of fact, she just mentioned a few days ago how meaningful were the practices with the Academy to her...Lana Fish, Newport Beach, CA 

The daughters are continuing to flourish in competitive matches thanks to your stroke and footwork overhaul.  A lot of parents are startled by their improvement and have asked who they are training with....  I am always pleased to be able to point them in your direction.Thanks again for all the great work...Melissa Kaffen, San Juan Capistrano, CA 

I wanted to let you know how much we have value you and your team at the Edge Academy. The Edge is like no other tennis academy that my kids have ever played with.  It is the first time that my kids have truly learned the proper technique on how to hit the ball and play tennis. We have done many clinics at various places in the past but nothing has compared to this.  Quite frankly, I attribute Stephanie’s success with the Corona del Mar High School Tennis team directly to you and your team.  Under you guidance and the techniques taught, she is now successfully playing with one of the best high school tennis teams (undefeated this season). We have done many other clinics with other clubs and so often it is just hitting balls with little instruction. Your clinics offer a lot of instruction combined with hitting the balls which is the only way to really improve. I want to thank you on behalf of our family for providing such a great tennis learning experience for my kids...Dorothy Joynt, Newport Beach, CA 

We are all so grateful for all that you have done for Justine over the last two years. You have been such a wonderful coach and mentor for her and we are amazed with her progress in just a short time. Justine has come to love the sport and talks about it with such enthusiasm. She has gained great confidence in the last few weeks of tennis try-outs and thanks to you her high school coaches love her style and technique! We were very lucky to have found you!  Felipe & Joyce Mationg, Orange , CA

My daughter, Maddie, was at your camp over winter break. We live in Denver and Maddie learned so much from you at your winter camp even though it rained so much! I just wanted to let you know that not only did Maddie make her varsity tennis team but she won State Championships this past weekend! Her school, Cherry Creek High School, also won the 5A title! Thanks again for working with her.  Nancy Bernstein, Denver, CO

I have worked with many coaches over the years, but my experience with The Edge Academy has made the biggest difference in my game. The real improvement started to occur when Iain and John took over my training. Their knowledge and attention to detail in developing my skills is bringing my game to an entirely new level... Elena Fish, Newport Beach, CA  

The Edge Academy has been a real blessing for my 14 year old son. Coach Iain and John are experts in teaching and really have helped my son feel more confident in what he is doing on the court. My son has had many instructors over the years but none have been so thorough in their teaching the game of tennis. My son has really improved and gained so much from their instruction... Linda Fong, Laguna Niguel, CA
