Class Levels by Age Group
Mini Champs will be taught on a 36’ court with mini nets. Red tennis balls will be used to learn basic ground stroke skills with proper technique. A combination of games and drills will be used for kids to develop footwork and hand-eye coordination.
Champs will be taught on the 60’ court and use orange tennis balls. This class is for kids still developing correct technique for all their shots (forehand, backhand, serves and volleys). They will also learn scoring, court positioning, tennis etiquette, etc. Games will be used to teach consistency and shot placement in a fun and friendly environment.
Elite Champs will be taught on the 60’ court and will be transitioning from orange tennis balls to green dot tennis balls. Kids in this group can hit 40-60 ball rallies with their coach and have already played in tournaments. Focus will be learning game situations, control of the point, mental toughness and shot control. **Entry must be approved by Director of Jr Development
Smashers will be taught on the full court and use yellow tennis balls. Kids will continue developing correct technique for all their shots (forehand, backhand, serves, and volleys). They will also learn scoring, court positioning, tennis etiquette, etc. Games will be used to teach consistency and shot placement in a fun and friendly environment.

Contenders are taught on the full court with yellow tennis balls. Focus will include mental, physical, and strategic parts of the game. Conditioning, court theory, and specialty shots (drop shots, top spin lob, etc.) are included.
