Tiny Tots (4-5 year olds)
Start your child’s tennis career with some serious fun! Led by dynamic instructors, classes will focus on the development of hand-eye coordination, footwork and basic stroke introduction. The main goal of this class is to encourage enthusiasm and love for the sport of tennis while introducing very basic aspects of the sport.
Red Team (5-8 year olds)
Students will be using red dot low compression balls. Red Team classes will focus on hand eye coordination, footwork and stroke mechanics. This is the first step in the USTA 10 and Under progression. Drills are well thought out and prepare players for the next level; Orange Team. Mini nets are used at this level which allows for more success in dynamic drills and games.
Orange Team (8 & 9 year olds)
Students will be using orange dot low compression balls. As an Orange Team member, your child will be introduced to more advanced footwork and movement drills as well as enhanced attention to stroke technique. Orange Team children will use a combination of mini-nets and the large net and will start to engage in more fed drills and cooperative drills with other Orange Team members.
Green Team (10-12 year olds)
Students will be using green dot low compression balls. This is the final step of the USTA 10 and Under program preparing players for using real tennis balls. Attention to proper technique continues and Green Team members are now hitting with each other much more. Footwork drills are combined with fed ball drills and the large net is used solely. At this point it is expected that each Green Team member has graduated from the Orange Team level and is able to rally successfully with other players.
