Junior Lessons

Our junior programs are arranged progressions of age and skill, with a pathway for both recreational and competitive players. Kids of all ages from beginner to the advanced tournament players can begin with Junior Lessons & Clinics or be placed into our Junior Competitive Groups. Players will learn in an environment focused on camaraderie, physical fitness, discipline and good sportsmanship.

Junior Lessons & Clinics

Our introductory junior programs are designed for beginners and recreational players to build a foundation of basic strokes and love for the game. Lessons and clinics are organized into small groups by age and ability and follow the developmental 10 & Under Tennis program. For additional information about this program, visit our Youth Tennis – Stages of Play page which illustrates the concepts of the program. Progress 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!

For additional information visit our Youth Tennis – Stages of Play page which illustrates the concepts of the program. Participation requires a two-day-per-week commitment with the 3rd day optional, and there are 4 sessions during the indoor season. All lessons and clinics play as scheduled during Spring Break.

All players must be evaluated for entry into our competitive programs. We offer free evaluations (prior to the registration date) during the Junior Evaluation Schedule, after which there will be a $25.00 fee for individual evaluations. Please refer to the July-August Calendar of Events for evaluation dates and registration times. There will be no guaranteed make-ups for these classes. It will sometimes be possible to make-up a class if there is room in an alternate class during the current session. Make-ups MUST be approved by an instructor or at the front desk. NO walk-in make-ups will be allowed. Available classes, days and times may be adjusted prior to the Indoor Season.

Players wishing to advance in competitive groups may do so by requesting via coach’s recommendation. Upon receiving the request, the coaches will convene, discuss placement of the player, and determine which group best fits the player’s current abilities. As a group, the coaches will make a decision to determine placement.
