We offer a complete junior tennis program for children from ages 4 to 18. Our Junior Development Program is directed by Simon Gale, the “2014 Youth Tennis Provider of the year.” Simon’s system of teaching will help develop children with a passion for the sport, and our ultimate goal is to build a lifelong love of the game.
Our philosophy for the Junior Program is X2 “Practice and Play”, the concept being that children play two times per week, like other youth sports. Research shows that 75% of people who participate in a sport only once a week are more likely to drop out of that sport within two years.

Parents as Partners

10 & Under
10 and Under Tennis is offered for children ages 4-10. It follows the same logic as other youth sports, like baseball and soccer, which use kid-sized courts and kid-sized equipment. We call this Red & Orange Ball.
11 & Above
This program is for players age 11 and older, who want to improve their tennis and competitive skills. We work with them to improve their technical, tactical, and strategic tennis skills. We refer to this as Green & Yellow Ball.
This group focuses on preparation for High School team play. Players must be age 12-16. The must also be an active JV team member, Varsity team member, or an outstanding freshman. Players will develop technical and tactical strategies to compete for both singles and doubles competition. A FREE 30 minute hitting session with a tennis professional is required before registering for this program. Call to schedule your hitting session today!
Tournament Training Program (TTP)
This program is by invitation only. It is for our players who are playing in USTA-sanctioned tournaments and are committed to developing skills required to compete in High School tournaments, USTA tournaments, etc. It is designed to prepare players to compete regularly. Players must be playing USTA-sanctioned tournaments and must commit to both training days per week.
Our Junior Passport Rewards System
As players complete their skill requirements, they will have their TSR “Passport” stamped. Players earn their stamps by completing skills requirements and exhibiting the traits of good tennis player, like hard work, good listening skills, and outstanding sportsmanship.
Once they reach a certain number of stamps, they get to spin the TSR prize wheel and collect a prize for their efforts!
