Junior Competition Program (JCP)
Beverly Hills Tennis is excited to announce Lee Shawn Stein as our new Junior Competition Program Director.
Many of you will know Lee Shawn from this past year as a talented pro in our JCP Program, where he was hand selected by Scott Crichlow to continue and grow the tradition. Scott will work closely with Lee Shawn during the transition and will remain as an advisory to JCP.
Lee Shawn comes to us from Oklahoma where he was ranked #1 in Oklahoma and the Missouri Valley in the Boy's 12's and 14's. Throughout his junior career, Lee Shawn was ranked top 30 nationally which garnered him a full scholarship to play Division 1 tennis at Wagner College. While at Wagner, he played #1 singles and doubles and helped lead the Seahawks to their first Northeastern Conference final.
Prior to becoming a member of the Beverly Hills Tennis Coaching Staff, Lee Shawn ran the Tournament Training Program and High Performance Program at Tompkin's Tennis in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lee Shawn worked closely with some of the best junior talent in Northern California, providing many players with national exposure.
Lee Shawn brings with him a wealth of high performance tennis knowledge as well as on court practical strategy. His even temper and straightforward approach to achieving success out of his players will continue to make our Junior Competition Program one of the best in Southern California.
We would like to thank Scott for his 7+ years of valued service developing and growing this program. We are also excited to announce Scott will launch a new endeavor here at Beverly Hills Tennis. His program will be aimed at highly ranked (sectional and national) junior players. Please stay tuned for information on this new and exciting program with Scott.
