Junior Programs

Quickstart (Ages 3-7)

The Quickstart program is designed for our youngest beginners who are usually 3-7 years old. The Quickstart Program utilizes USTA-approved foam balls, mini-nets and age and level-appropriate drills. In fun and friendly one hour and 45 minute classes, we offer fundamental skill-building exercises critical to creating early muscle memory. In no time, your child will learn to swing the racquet and move his or her feet like a tennis prodigy! Qualified pros are selected very carefully for this program. We understand the importance of your child having A LOT OF FUN at this developmental stage, so we’ve hand-picked the most fun-loving and energetic pros to teach in this program. You can expect your child to realize significant improvement in the areas of eye-hand coordination, footwork proficiency, and basic stroke movements by the completion of this program. Progress reports are used to monitor progress.

Junior Development Program (Ages 6-12)

For beginner, advanced beginner and intermediate level players, the Junior Development Program is designed to take your child to the next level towards tennis proficiency. This program, offered in 1 hour and 1.5 hour sessions, focuses primarily on the nuts and bolts of stroke production. The qualified instructors analyze and break down every stroke in the game until your child can complete the strokes routinely. They also emphasize dynamic footwork and live ball drills with quick movements that are essential to developing the complete tennis player. Upon completion of this program, the successful JDP student will have a solid understanding of basic score keeping, a complete tennis game and should be able to maintain baseline rallies. Progress reports aid in monitoring the progress of your child’s growth in this program.

Advanced Training Program

For advanced and advanced-intermediate level players, the ATP program offers comprehensive training for players involved in, or considering, tournament play. This two hour comprehensive program starts with a dynamic warm-up and concludes with game-based drills and supervised match play. Once all the strokes are honed, our instructors guide students towards constructing points, tactically working through games, and strategizing a match plan through playing sets. Many students who have completed this program can be found playing USTA tournaments and participating on their school tennis teams. Progress reports aid in monitoring the progress of your child’s growth in this program.
