Nick Bollettieri
President, IMG Academies

Stephen Koon was part of the IMG-Bollettieri Tennis Academy for several years and was a very important part of working with potential players that have talent to play for colleges on scholarship or to be a professional on either the WTA or ATP tour.

Stephen’s work ethic is very simple: give 100% and then more to whomever you work with. His morals and character are of the highest degree and this is a major plus for him because our young athletes are in need of guidance.

Not only did he travel with our players but he was also very prompt in sending daily reports or calling in to discuss any matters at hand. It is not that often that I write this strong of a recommendation, but Stephen Koon is exceptional and I personally endorse him
