During Polito’s first stint at Cleveland State, the men’s team captured its fifth Horizon League title and had three players earn All-League honors, while the women advanced to the semifinals of the Horizon League Tournament for the fourth straight season and also had three players earn postseason honors.

Polito joined the Cleveland State coaching staff during the 2012-13 season after a six-year stint as an assistant coach with the women’s tennis team at Georgia.

Prior to his time in Athens, Polito spent two years as an assistant coach at Kansas (2004-06) and two years in the same position at Ohio State (2001-03). With the Jayhawks, Polito’s coaching and recruiting efforts helped make dramatic improvements on and off the court, culminating with ITA All-Academic Team honors and an ITA No. 59 ranking following the 2006 season. At Ohio State, Polito led the Buckeyes to a combined record of 31-19 and consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. In 2002, he was honored as the ITA Midwest Region Assistant Coach of the Year.

Hands-Down the best camp!

My son had tournament experience before attending camp and has a private coach that is outstanding, so I was skeptical whether or not the coaches at Nike Ocean Reef would be able to enhance his skills. Coaches Polito and Cashman did such a great job of pairing the kids in groups of skill level but also mixed up skill levels and strictly enforced that all players would encourage others. Even though the work was hard (footwork drills, running, etc.), my son had FUN and made some really good friendships. The kids cheered for each other and the environment was lively. I heard the coaches constantly praise all the kids. My son had become stressed by the pressure of tournament play required so often, so we took a break and attended this camp. It was a great decision. He improved, but it was fun. He has attended a Nike camp before, but said hands-down, this was the best camp he has ever been to for any sport. We also loved the locatin of this camp because it gave us, the parents, something to do while the kids played tennis.

After only 8 days playing, my daughter is hitting beautifully! She plans to find good instruction back home in Michigan and hopes to attend the Nike camp again next year!

Re-kindling the Love of the Game!

My 10 yr. old.daughter had not picked up a racket for over a year. We wanted to re-introduce tennis in a fun way and where she would get good instruction in an intensive camp that would allow her to re-learn skills the correct way. She has rekindled a love of the sport and has continued afterward with private clinics at Ocean Reef.
