Junior Competitive Groups 2022-2023

Junior Competitive Groups

Our Junior Competitive program is for players preparing for or involved in competitive tennis. Drills and games focus on strokes, footwork, strategy, and match play. Younger players follow the Stages of Play in the USTA’s (United States Tennis Association) Youth Progression program. Visit our Junior Player Progression page which illustrates the concepts of the program.

Groups are organized by age and ability based on the USTA’s Youth Progression program. Progression through the program gives players the ability to transition through tennis based on age and size with appropriate balls, rackets and court dimensions. This develops a strong foundation for players to sharpen their skills and love of the game while achieving success through each step of the program.

We offer five 7-week sessions during Indoor Season. Players must commit to all 7 weeks, and drop-ins are not offered at this time. Players may choose to attend 1, 2 or 3 days per week at designated times slots each of those days. With permission from instructors, players may do make-ups on days they are not registered before the next session begins. We currently request players 10 years & older have no guests in the viewing area. Ages 9 & under may have one adult per child.

Junior Memberships are available for $75/year which provide reduced rates for lessons and court time.
