Tennis Level Offerings - Summer 2022

Introduction (5, 6 & 7 year olds)  - Only Offered Session 1 (May 2022)
This option is designed for those just looking to give tennis a try. It will be five 45 minute lessons focused on getting players familiar with the racket and making contact with the ball.

Fundamental (7, 8, 9 year olds) 
This option is designed for those that have already interest in tennis and are ready to start building the basics and learning the fundamentals of tennis. This will consist of 60 minute lessons and focuses on grips, footwork and introduces the basic technique for the forehand. All drills will be on short courts intentionally designed to help build ball control.

Fundamental (9 thru 13 year olds)
This option is designed for those that have already have interest in tennis and are ready to start building the basics and learning the fundamentals of tennis. This group will move slightly faster as the participants will be older and a bit more experienced. This will again consist of 60 to 75 minute lessons and will introduce the same fundamental skills  adding in more technique for the backhand and possibly the serve. All drills will be on short courts intentionally designed to help build ball control.

**NEW in 2022** Summer Academy (8 thru 13 year olds)
This is a combined age group option designed for those that are most interested in tennis and who have completed at least one PLAY “Fundamental” session in either 2021 or 2022. The Academy offers a two hour session on Saturday Mornings (10am to Noon) and will continue to develop the forehand, backhand and spend significant time on the serve. During the Academy net play and spin will also be introduced along with the basics of game and match play. The academy will start with short court hitting to emphasize ball control and increase the court size as the summer goes on working toward ¾ and full court rallies. Feel free to talk with coaches during your Fundamental class to determine if the Academy is right for your tennis player.

Level 1 (8 thru 13 year olds) - Only Offered Session 2 (August 2022)
This is  a combined age group weekday evening option designed for those that have completed at least one of the Fundamentals classes and confident with fundamental skills. This level will consists of 60 minute lessons. It will continue to develop the forehand and the backhand while spending more time on the serve and working toward simulated match play. This session will continue to utilize short court drills and extend as skills progress.
