THE STAFF

Randy Bloemendaal - Men's Tennis Coach, Indiana University

A 15-year head coaching veteran, Randy Bloemendaal is in his sixth season as the IU men's tennis coach and is turning the Hoosier program into one of the Big Ten's best.

In 2010-11, Bloemendaal guided the Hoosiers to a 23-8 record, including a 9-1 mark in the Big Ten. The 23 wins established a new school record, while the league mark earned Indiana a No. 2 seed in the Big Ten tourney. After advancing to the Big Ten Tournament semifinals, Bloemendaal's squad earned an At-Large berth to the NCAA Championships. The NCAA invitation was IU's second under Bloemendaal, coming after a 2008 berth in Bloemendaal's debut season that represented the program's first NCAA trip since 2001.

Last season, IU won 18 matches to go along with a slew of individual accolades for Bloemendaal's players. Senior Josh MacTaggart and freshman Sam Monette earned first-team All-Big Ten honors, marking the third straight year IU has had at least two players named all-conference.

A recent inductee into his alma mater Lees-McCrae College's Athletic Hall of Fame, Bloemendaal's Indiana record now stands at 88-55 record.

Before arriving at IU in the fall of 2006 as an assistant coach, Bloemendaal served as the head men's and women's tennis coach at Charleston Southern University. In 2005, Bloemendaal led the sixth-seeded men's team to the Big South Championship match for the first time since 2002. Over his two seasons, the Buccaneer men went 22-23, including a 16-11 mark during the 2005 campaign. Prior to his hiring at Charleston Southern, Bloemendaal served as the head men's and women's coach at his alma mater, Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, N. C. Bloemendaal was the head coach of both squads from 1995-2003. During his eight years with the Bobcats, the men's team amassed a 159-36 (.815) mark, while the women were 110-63 (.634).

Patric Hynes - Assistant Men's Tennis Coach, Indiana University

After spending seven seasons as the head coach at Presbyterian College's men's program, Patric Hynes is in his second season as IU's assistant coach. At Presybterian, Hynes helped build the program into a Division II power, and then oversaw the program's move to Division I in 2008 as a member of the Big South Conference. In its final two seasons at the Division II level (2006, 2007), Hynes led Presbyterian to back-to-back undefeated conference seasons and championships. Hynes came to Presbyterian College from Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, N.C. where he spent the previous season as head men's and women's tennis coach. In 2004, Hynes led the men's team to an 18-4 overall record and a second place finish in the Carolinas-Virginia Conference regular season while the women's team compiled a 17-4 mark and also finished second in the CVAC. Both Lees-McRae tennis teams also excelled in the classroom as they earned ITA Academic All-American honors.

Adam Herendeen - Head Men's Tennis Coach, Presbyterian College

After spending two years as Presbyterian College's assistant men's and women's tennis coach, Herendeen was named head coach of the men's program two years ago. A 2009 Presbyterian College graduate, Herendeen helped both the men's and women's programs to new Division I era highs for wins in 2011. The men recorded 11 wins last season, while the women won nine dual matches after winning only five in 2010. As a player, Herendeen was a four-year letterwinner from 2006-09 while playing for current IU Assistant Coach Patric Hynes.

Chuck Kriese - Former Head Men's Tennis Coach, Clemson University

After compiling a 685-418 record in 33 years as the head coach at Clemson and leading the Tigers to 10 ACC Championships, Kriese left the college ranks in the spring of 2008 to tackle a new challenge. In April of 2008 Kriese was named the national tennis coach for Thailand. In his 30-plus years of coaching both nationally and internationally, Kriese has guided young people to great tennis careers and camp experiences. He has conducted clinics and seminars around the United States and the world. Hundreds of his former campers have received college tennis scholarships and several have continued on as professional players and coaching as well (Nine of his former players have reached the top 100 in the ATP world rankings). Kriese did his initial coaching apprenticeship under Australian Coaching Legend Harry Hopman. Kriese has lectured around the world about his teaching, motivation, leadership and coaching techniques. He has appeared on ESPN's instructional series "Play Your Best Tennis" and speaks regularly as a motivational speaker. He has authored five books and his book Coaching Tennis is considered one of the most comprehensive tennis and coaching books ever written.

THE OVERNIGHT CAMP PROGRAM

Sunday evening after dinner, all players will be evaluated by Coach Bloemendaal and placed into groups of similar ability. Groups will be rearranged if necessary as the week progresses. Biomechanically sound stroke production, correction of existing strokes, and proper footwork will be emphasized with all groups. Extensive drilling to sharpen all strokes and competitive matches will be used to improve each player. Stretching, conditioning, weight training, proper practice habits, and basic and advanced singles and doubles match strategy will also be covered on the court and in the classroom.

THE COMPETITION CAMP PROGRAM

This camp is for tournament players ages 14 and up. Coach Bloemendaal will teach you how to train yourself to perform better in competitions, so as your level rises your results will rise with them. You will not only come away from the camp with a better idea of how to compete at your best level, you will have handouts to take with you and drills to implement ways to perform better in competitions. This camp will be kept small (maximum of 20 campers) for more one on one time with Coach as he helps you design your best version of youself in competitions.
