PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

Pre-Tennis: Net Generation 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 red 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 & Under Tennis: Introduces tennis to children based on age, physical size and ability. By modifying the court dimensions (36 feet or 60 feet in length), using 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 advanced to the orange ball 60' court. With success on the 60' court, the wiyll progress to the full yellow ball 72' court. ALL children will be introduced to game play. They will learn simple scoring, match play, & good sportsmanship.

Competitive 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 USTA JR Team Tennis and High School Varsity Teams. 

 



PLAY DAYS 
Under development for 2022.
We need volunteers to assist with these events designed for inter-generational quality time!
Great fun to play with the kids!
Please CONTACT US to help out and join in the play!

TEAM CHALLENGES are a low-pressure introduction to team play, which is appropriate for 8 to 12 year olds who can drop-hit over the net and play a short rally. The matches are played at the Red Ball, Orange Ball, and Green Ball levels.

Scheduled either weekday evenings weekend mornings during the summer.

AFTER SCHOOL TENNIS keeps kids active after school while learning tennis! Our supervised program gets kids moving, helps develop their motor skills and teaches them valuable life skills. Most importantly kids get to have fun with their friends in a fun and safe environment.

Scheduled in the fall after school.

FAMILY & FRIENDS TENNIS Family Night becomes Family Tennis Night! Players bring their parents, siblings, uncles, aunts, grandparents...to the courts for some fun tennis where keeping score, winning, or losing isn't  the point.

Scheduled on Friday or Sunday nights during the summer.
