JUNIOR PROGRAMMING

We have two options for tennis instruction:  An introductory/recreational path that offers 1 weekly class and includes scheduled match play or our Excellence path offering multiple weekly training and match play.  We understand the more quality time invested on court the more quality player produced and have restructured our offerings to be cost-effective and crafted to produce the next generation of great players. 

  • Four base levels of player development ensure players are grouped proper training teams.
  • U10, Futures, Challenger, Tour
  • Each Level offers two options:  Recreational/Introductory Path train 1x a week and 1 match play
  • Excellence Path train multiple times a week and 1 match play save 20%


U10 Programming  (Under 10)

A pathway of junior development that focuses on rally skills to encourage match play as quickly as possible while setting a foundation of safe biomechanics.  Use of modified courts, equipment, and balls get our students playing the game with pro level sophistication as encouraged by the newest USTA standards.  Match play offers structured, scheduled point play with weekly score tracking and after match coaching.
