Skills Developed

For 4-6 year olds the emphasis is on age appropriate skills, including movement skills, throwing and receiving skills, and an introduction to court movement, agility training, and coordination drills with tennis related games and fun. This class focuses on the skills needed before players can be introduced to tennis. No more than 6 players per instructor.

For 7-8 year olds the emphasis is on advancing pre-tennis skills and introducing tennis specific court movement, agility training, stroke production, and beginning match play.  The program includes a once-a-week class, FREE match practice on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm. For tournament players we have a Red Elite and Tournament Red that is invitation only. No more than 6 players per instructor.  This level is eligible to attend the WORLD TOUR events.

Players need to bring a junior racquet and a water bottle or jug.  Players should wear a skirt/shorts with pockets to hold balls and tennis court shoes with non-marking soles.

Red Level is for players who are 4-8 years old. Players learn on a 36 ft. court with a smaller net, red compression balls and a 21″ or 23″ racquet. We offer classes that meet once a week for 8 weeks, with a WORLD TOUR Super Event at the end of each session.
