DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAMS
 

Children are divided by age and ability across the courts in each camp-like setting. Each site will have a head coach and assistants to oversee the day's activities, beginning with warm-up, skill of the day, and practice, followed by games and match play.. .

MUNCHKIN TENNIS  QuickStart Tennis format introduces our youngest children to tennis skills in a non-threatening manner, developing eye-hand-ball skills which progress easily into racquet handling. Racquets and courts are tailored to a child's size. Slower and lower bouncing balls ease a child into moving to the ball and rallying over the net. A variety of fun, fast- paced games, with every child constantly involved, introduce the forehand, backhand, volley, serve, and footwork. Children participate in rotation through various skill stations, then small group contests, and finally games that introduce scoring and rallying


TEN AND UNDER TNNIS introduces tennis to children based on age, physical size and ability. By modifying the court dimensions (36 feet or 60 feet in length), uusing appropriately sized tennis racquets and slower bouncing balls, beginners progress rapidlyChildren who have progressed to rallying 4 or 5 times over the net with the red felt balls on the 36' court will be avanced to the orange ball 60' court. With success on the 60' court, the will progress to the full yellow ball 72' court. ALL children will be introduced to game play. They will learn simple scoring, match play, & good sportsmans

MIDDLE SCHOOL TENNIS helps young teens progress quickly from beginner to full court competitive games. They receive an extra half hour of match play, plus many kids remain at the courts to play with their friends. Healthy outdoor fun and exercise! Learning tennis with their peers, many of these players go on to play high school JV or Varsity Tennis.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED is geared for the dedicated junior who is playing or planning to play competitvely in programs such as USTA JR Team Tennis, USTA Tournaments, or high school varsity tennis. We work on high level stroke production and match play.

The Lee CTA Is a USTA NJTL Chapter! 
USTA National Junior Tennis & Learning

NJTL is a national team tennis program for kids. Its mission is to develop the character of young people through tennis, emphasizing the ideals and life of the legendary Arthur Ashe. All the on-court programs offered by the Lee NJTL Chapter promote this mission and are centered on team play and sportsmanship. To reach NJTL Chapter status, we've had to maintain high standards for teaching tennis, offer an educational component, and stress SPORTSMANSHIP!
Every NJTL Chapter is required to have a learning component other than just tennis. The Lee CTA/NJTL Chapter offers the National Arthur Ashe Essay Contest and a Life Skills component. CLICK HERE to learn more about the contest. The grand prize is a 2-day trip to the US OPEN for the child and a parent or guardian! The Life Skills curriculum includes a Character Theme in each day's lesson  -  Listen, Respect, Effort, Teamwork, Responsibility, and Sportsmanship.

We coordinate with Lee Youth Association (LYA) & Lenox Community Center Summer Rec Programs: The LYA runs its Summer Rec Program at the Lee Elementary School (LES), on the same campus as the Lee MS/HS tennis courts. LYA staff walk the children to the tennis courts and Lee CTA staff return the children to the school. The same cooperative effort exists at the Lenox CC, also on the same campus as the courts..This results in a great all-day camp for the kids, including tennis, at very affordable prices! 

 

Children love a sport when they have fun with friends and love their coach!

A mix of group and private lessons, along with team competition is the best way to learn tennis!

Tennis is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends!

Competition is what keeps kids in the game!
