Throughout the year there are 14 week sessions and 6 week mini sessions available to our juniors. In addition we offer a Summer Tennis Camp. Please see below for a description of these programs and a link to the current registration forms.
Each class will emphasize hand-eye coordination, basic stroke technique, and movement skills through a series of fun games and activities.
Students will focus on sound stroke development. Match play will be introduced using the quick start format but with some adaptations based on each classes progress.
RISING STARS & COMPETITORS
Students will continue to develop sound strokes and grips, proper footwork and basic strategy during match play. Video analysis will be introduced, as well as agility and fitness training.
CHALLENGERS, ADVANCED & HIGH PERFORMANCE
My philosophy for this program is “Serious Fun”. Developing into an elite athlete is hard work; it takes many on court hours, conditioning, countless tournaments, and more. During this program, students will work on fine-tuning all aspects of the game, including World Class footwork patterns, modern stroke fundamentals, efficient strategy and mental efficiency training for match play. We will also use video analysis to assess proper technique as well as fitness and conditioning training to help develop player speed, agility and strength. Tournament travel will also be a big part of this program.
RECREATIONAL CLUB TENNIS
Program is design for the recreational tennis players that want to maintain their tennis skills in a more fun and social format. Students will be challenged according to their level of play.
