Junior Beginners

Our introductory junior programs are designed for beginners and recreational players to build a foundation of basic strokes and love for the game. Clinics are organized into small groups by age and ability and follow the USTA’s (United States Tennis Association) Youth Progression program. For additional information visit our Junior Player Progression page which illustrates the concepts of the program. Progression through the Stages of Play gives young players the ability to transition into tennis based on their age and size. Kids will develop skills and a foundation of the game while achieving success each step of the way!

Junior Beginner Clinics

Junior Beginner Clinics will play on 36, 60 & 70 foot courts using age-appropriate balls.  The youngest players experience an excellent introduction to tennis with an emphasis on having fun, developing hand-to-eye coordination, and general athletic skills that will help achieve future tennis success. Progress will advance kids into classes focusing on basic strokes (forehand, backhand, volley, overhead and serve). Junior players will also learn how to rally and keep score. Junior Beginner Clinics meet up to three times per week during 7 week sessions (days/times vary). Make-ups must be done during the session in which student is currently enrolled. All lessons play as scheduled during Spring Break.
