The program, under the direction of Larry Seidman and Yuval Higger, is a high level sports training program for varsity level American tennis players in Israel. Yuval coached Gillad Blum, Harel Levy and Shahar Peer, all world ranked players. Adult chaperones accompany the participants during all phases of the program. Participants who commit for the 2019 summer program will be able to withdraw for any reason prior to April 15, 2019.

Each North American participant and their family will be asked to commit to hosting Israeli athletes who come to the United States to train or compete. Every precaution will be taken to ensure that the participants are free to have fun in a safe and wholesome environment.

"The Program provided my daughter with an amazing cultural experience combined with a unique athletic program" -Barbara, mother of Joanna
