Vitaly Gorin is the brains behind the Gorin Tennis Academy, situated in Northern California. The academy offers year-round programs that utilise intense drillings to develop and fine-tune technique. While the academy hasn’t produced any elite players yet, Gorin has guided many competitors into the top 100, including Dmitry Tursunov, Igor Kunitsyn and Jimmy Wang.

Coach Gorin believes that working with young aspiring tennis players carries a heavy moral obligation. This demands that every student receive the best possible education in order that they may reach their full tennis potential. It is this obligation that is at the center of the Gorin teaching philosophy.
