9-11 Years Old – Orange Level

  • 9-11 Years Old
  • 60' Court
  • Orange Compression Balls
  • 23" Racquet

Skills Developed

The emphasis is on court movement, basic stroke technique and match play.  Orange Level focuses on developing an all-court game and on learning to transition to the net.  Players work on correct technique for serve and return, with a focus on using the correct grips and the ability to hit to targets.   Players will stay in this level for about two years as they progress through all the skills required to master this level.  The program includes once-a-week class, FREE Match Practice on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm.  This level is eligible for the WORLD TOUR events at the end of every session.

Orange Level is for players who are 9-11 years old, or who have mastered the Red Level Competencies as determined by the coaching staff. Players learn on a 60 ft. court with orange compression balls and a 23″ or 25″ racquet.  Classes meet once or twice a week.  No more than 8 players per instructor.

The emphasis is on court movement, basic stroke technique and match play.  The program includes a once-a-week class, match practice on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm during the school year.  We have Orange Level, Orange Elite, and Tournament Orange Level.  Elite and Tournament Level are by invitation only.
