Download the FALL 2023 Junior Tennis Program

Tournament Rookies (formerly 6 and under)
Introduce your child to tennis with slower, softer balls on a smaller court. Fun games help new players develop the technique and coordination needed to progress in tennis play.

Tournament Starts (formerly 9 & under)
These players will prepare to transition to the 60’ court. They have demonstrated an understanding of basic groundstroke and serve technique as well as the ability to rally 10 or more in a row. Players are both physically and mentally prepared to begin to work on the situational aspects of the game.

Tournament Aces (formerly 12 & under)
This offers a chance for junior players to continue developing their techniques and to implement more advanced tactics in both team and individual match settings.

Tournament Training (formerly 12 & under ELITE, 14 & under, and 18 & under)
This class is designed for players that are starting to compete in tournaments or high school tennis teams. It is for ages 12-18 and it is replaced the three former classes – 12 & under ELITE, 14 & under, and 18 & under. Players should already be working on the continental grip. Depending on age, yellow and green dot balls will be used. All players will work on skill development, footwork, and match tactics.

Junior Match Play – ages 8-18
Players will learn to put the skills that they have learned to work in match play situations. Singles and doubles tactics will be reviewed. Rules of tournament play will be enforced. If a junior attends a weekly class full time, they will receive 50% off their Junior Match Play registration. A junior may drop in for $20/week. Sign up is required to drop in.
