Red Ball Ages 4-7 (Beginners)
This USTA-sanctioned program focuses on the development of agility, coordination, and balance. It’s a whole new ball game for your child. A perfect first experience that’s fun, great exercise, and exciting! The program uses kid-sized equipment; slower-moving and lower-bouncing red balls, shorter and lighter racquets, and smaller courts. This format makes beginner tennis easier and fun, as your child builds a foundation of hand-eye coordination, agility and balance for all sports.
Red - Orange Ball Intermediate Ages 6-8 (1-2 yrs. experience)
At this level, players continue to work on fundamentals, but there is a greater emphasis on improving their stroke technique, footwork and rallying skills. During this class, kids begin to see greater mechanics and consistency of play. We continue to focus on the ABC’s (agility, balance, coordination and speed) to improve your child’s athleticism. At the end of class, players have a much stronger grasp of the fundamentals, including stroke technique and rallying skills.
Orange Ball - Ages 7-10 (1-2 yrs. experience)
Players will solidify their mechanics, creating repeatable and dependable strokes. They will be developing swings that harmonize the racquet and body to facilitate a consistent contact point. Athletes begin to learn basic shot combinations. We will encourage all students to participate in some form competition once they are ready.
Green Ball (less than 1 yr.) Ages 9-12
Yellow Ball (less than 1 yr.) Ages 12-15
This introduces kids to playing with a low bounce green ball which slows the game down to a speed that gives players time to play good basic tennis shots and enables them to have maximum fun playing the game!
Intermediate Green - Yellow Ball Ages 9-12
Players will solidify their mechanics, creating repeatable and dependable strokes. Athletes begin to learn more complex shot combinations and strategies. Players will focus on building strength and conditioning to prepare for matches. We will encourage all students to participate in some form competition once they are ready.
Yellow Ball Ages 12-15
This class is about perfecting the shots and techniques that a player has shown aptitude for in previous levels, and challenging each player to improve on shots and techniques that do not come as easily. The end result is a player who understands how to set up a point to increase his or her chances of success. Lessons at this level are all geared to improve our players’ chances of winning a point, a match, and a tournament. Players will develop quick movements, change of direction and rotation which will allow their bodies to adapt to the demands of the game.
