Southlake Tennis Academy follows the curriculum developed with Evolve 9, the leading expert in junior development training.  We tailor our program to meet the needs of each player, focusing on the skills that need to be acquired by age. Each level has instruction and play to foster a life-long love for tennis.

Our program develops skills on and off the court. Join our closed STA Facebook Group for weekly homework assignments, family tennis challenges and team events throughout the summer! As part of the Evolve 9 program, players will be invited to participate in challenges with players from all over the world.

We use the 10U format for both instruction and play. This format features modified racquets, balls, courts, and scoring to “right-size” the game for children. 10U formats allow junior players to gain skills at a much earlier age in a technically correct way, while having fun learning the game.  We offer a competitive progression from Match Day to Future Stars Beginner Tournaments to help prepare players for USTA tournament play.

The Texas Section supports a transitional competitive program.  Players start in 8U Red Ball, move to 10U Orange/Green and graduate to Yellow Ball at 11 years old.  Each level has a progression where points are earned to move to the next level.  Our program supports this system, so players use the same balls in practice that they will see in tournament play.  For more information about competitive tennis in Texas please use this link Texas Junior Tennis

Movement through Levels

Each age group has multiple levels so players can advance at their own pace.  Each level has a set of skills that need to be mastered in order to move up to the next stage of development.  Classes focus on athletic development and technical instruction as coaches work on skill acquisition.  Coaches evaluate player match skills on Match Days.   All these skills are reviewed each session by our coaching staff. A parent meeting will be held at the beginning and end of each session to discuss class objectives. You will receive a written evaluation at the end of the session.
