Summer Session Youth Programming Schedule

Summer Registration Open Now

 

Youth Tennis (10 and under)

  • Kids play using red, orange, or green balls that bounce lower, don’t move as fast through the air, and are easier to hit.
  • Rackets are sized for small hands, and courts are smaller and easier to cover.
  • As they learn to rally play, kids will have more fun, feel less frustration, and be excited to keep playing!
  • Our staff is committed to creating a safe, fun environment with accelerated learning for all junior entry level players.
  • Our youth programming combines the USTA 10 and Under tennis format with our own developmentally-focused process to enhance the mental, physical, and technical growth of all our junior players.
  • No refunds after sign-ups.
