Intro to Tennis 2 (Beginner Youth Ages 12-15)

We offer a specialized program designed for individuals aged 12 and older, whether they are new to tennis or have limited experience. Our program’s primary goal is to impart essential skills and techniques necessary to build a strong tennis foundation while fostering a deep love and enjoyment for the sport. Our curriculum places significant emphasis on instructing students in the fundamental elements of grip, groundstrokes, volleys, serves, and footwork. All coaching will be provided by our experienced instructors, as these students are still in the process of developing their proficiency to actively engage in rallies.

Advanced Intro to Tennis 2 (Beginner Youth Level 2 Ages 12-15)

Once your child, aged between 12 and 15, has cultivated a firm grasp of the fundamental elements and skills essential to the sport and is demonstrating proficiency in rallying (sustaining extended exchanges with a partner), serving techniques, serving execution, and has shown progress in ball placement, they are prepared to progress to the Advanced Introduction to Tennis 2 program.

Competitive Development (Intermediate Youth Ages 12-15)

Students who have proficiency of all tennis strokes and game strategies exhibit the capability to sustain rallies with more than three consecutive successful shots around 50% of the time. Moreover, they have refined their serving proficiency to the point where they can reliably put their serves into play in approximately 25% of their attempts. These players are actively dedicated to enhancing their situational awareness during gameplay. They are either at the initial phase of their competitive journey or have not yet participated in their debut competitive match.

Advanced Competitive Development

Designed for tournament participants who excel in all aspects of the game and possess a wealth of competitive experience, these individuals are committed to advancing their understanding of effective training methods, preparing for competitions, strengthening their mental resilience, refining their strategic expertise, and perfecting their techniques. Students in this group regularly participate in competitive tournaments and matches.
