Miami Beach Ocean Watersports equips patrons with all the tools they need to plan an exhilarating day on the picturesque waters of Biscayne Bay. Visitors can grab an ore, hop on a paddleboard or kayak, and glide atop the blue expanses, or satisfy their need for speed on a jet ski. The company’s customized powerboat whips inflatable banana boats back and forth with hairpin turns, and sends parasails skyward so riders can enjoy expansive views and score points with seagulls by pointing out unsuspecting picnickers.
When the lights go down on Revo Soccer's stretch of realistic indoor turf, glow soccer transports the game into an otherworldly dimension decorated in swooshes of invisible paint that pop under blacklights and a twilit cityscape that appears on one wall. In the darkened arena, players decked out with glowing T-shirts, glow sticks, and face paint imitate their favorite bioluminescent athletes as they send an eerie orb careening around the field. During daylight hours, instructors help sharpen students' skills through weeklong camps, private lessons, and soccer academies. Twice a week, players can drop in to make friends or finally acquire an arch-nemesis during pickup games, or strengthen team bonds during league play.
Cheer on the Hurricanes as they defend their home court from the hardwood harassment of evenly matched ACC conference mainstay North Carolina. Guards Malcolm Grant and Durand Scott lead the offensive attack while sophomore center Reggie Johnson controls the lane against UNC's sticky-heeled dribbles and drives.

Since 1986, Brian Lutz has taught a panoply of tennis players how to improve their game and savor the sport's social aspect. Over time, he honed his teaching techniques and eventually devised his own tennis curriculum. In 2003, that curriculum inspired him to launch TennisTip, a program where experienced instructors help adults and teens improve their tennis game through self-discovery and fundamental skills.
TennisTip instructors work to provide hands-off guidance and gentle inspiration, letting students discover their best game through strategic practice. Combined with tennis-specific cardio exercises and an emphasis on social bonding, the regimen seeks to form independent, effective, and affable players out of every student. Since first starting up in the Big Apple, TennisTip has expanded to a second location, where pros instill students with courtside skills amid the warm Miami sun and attentive pelican ball boys.
