Junior Beginner Clinics 2023-2024

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 Memberships are available for $75/year which provide reduced rates for lessons and court time. Please contact us at (810) 987-6868 or via email at tennishouse@sbcglobal.net to inquire about availability and register for Junior Beginner Clinics. Our Waiver of Liability is required for participation.

Junior Beginner Clinics

Junior Beginner Clinics are arranged by age and skill using size appropriate balls, rackets, and courts. This system allows players to learn tennis fundamentals while having fun improving their game. Juniors Beginners 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.

Skill development will advance players into classes focusing on basic strokes (forehand, backhand, volley, overhead and serve). Junior players will also learn how to rally and keep score. Players may attend 1 or 2 days per week during 7 week sessions (days/times vary). With prior approval from instructors, make-ups may be done during the session currently enrolled. All lessons play as scheduled during Spring Break.
