About Me

Hi, my name is Kim Kehl. I'm the Head Pro and Tennis Director at JCYS Highland Park Max Davidson Courts. I'm certified as an MTMCA Professional, MTI Professional, USPTR Professional Junior Development, USPTR 11-17 Professional, USPTR Performance Certified, USPTA Professional, USTA QuickStart, Cardio Tennis, TRX Cardio Tennis Licensed Trainer, and I work with PTR/PTA Kidz Tennis/Little Tennis. I graduated from Western Illinois University with an MS in Exercise Physiology (PhysX) and a BS in Physical Education with a minor in science from Colorado State University. Tennis has been thought to be, for more than a century, a difficult sport to learn. Primarily because the complex teaching methods used today only serve to aggravate what now can be taught in a more natural method that requires very few requirements like footwork, body position, and complicated strike zones. I want you to experience for yourself how tennis can be less complicated and more fun than you thought possible! I also teach groups, clinics, seniors, and have been stringing racquets for over 15 years.

Teaching Style

Tennis must be natural and intuitive. My goal is to teach and train the natural and simple concepts that all start with ONE Thing! There is a court load of legacy tennis still being taught out there - find out how to play tennis the way you will wish you had been playing all along. It is never to late to learn this ONE Thing. Furthermore, I want to tap into the emotional and spiritual development that is possible to achieve through tennis. Specialties include: Cardio Tennis, TRX Cardio Tennis, starting new tennis programs, developing top junior talent, adult tennis drills and classes, senior tennis, QuickStart Tennis, and a full variety of creative games that take tennis to the top as a lifetime sport.
