Competitive Level (Previous Experience Required)
Players involved in this program are comfortable with basic tennis techniques and concepts. Players are starting to show an interest in competitive play and high school tennis. Competitive techniques, development of individual playing styles, team and tournament concepts, rules, etiquette and sportsmanship are emphasized. Class is packaged with supervised match play.
- Junior Competitive, 10 - 13 years
- Senior Competitive, 14 - 17 years
Tournament Training Program (Evaluation Required Prior to Joining Program)
The Tournament Training Program (TTP) is for the junior player actively pursuing year round competition and sanctioned tournament participation. While all our classes offer instruction, TTP is separated by one factor – INTENSITY. Tennis is a challenging sport to play and master, and players without intensity don’t succeed at the highest level! Students in TTP not only share the skills required of tennis, but also the love of the sport! In addition to intensive on-court instruction and workouts, off-court sport science topics will be introduced and discussed.
