After School Tennis Program
With two 5 week sessions available, kids will have the opportunity to work with professional coaches to improve their skills. Our junior tennis programs are founded on the belief that being fit for life starts with positive experiences in a welcoming environment. Classes are designed to instill a passion for tennis, athletic activity and develop skills that will serve them well for a lifetime of activity. With our focus on safety, fun and skill development, children will work harder, have more fun and learn faster than ever before.
The After School Tennis Program is divided by ages and within each age group we also separate into ability groups. This allows children to learn with age and size appropriate equipment and develop their technique to ensure long-term success.
ABC’s - (Athletic Balance and Coordination)
An introduction to athletic activity and exercise that builds self-esteem, this program focuses on hand-eye coordination, cooperative play, body awareness, basic athletic movement, and most importantly FUN!
The class teaches tennis fundamentals and presents the proper grips, strokes and footwork patterns that are necessary to ensure future development. Each class has a weekly theme reinforced through drills, games and competitions that will promote fun and learning.
This class introduces and improves upon proper grips, stroke production and footwork patterns through repetition and fun tennis drills. The emphasis is on fun, live ball tennis, and point play.
