Students in this group compete regularly and train several times per week.  Students in this training program are on tract to graduate into our High Performance Futures program.

Class Breakdown:

Warm Up: Partner-based activities that focus on control and theme of the day.

Skill Development: Is broken into two specific areas of focus, Athletic and Tennis. Athletic, covers tennis-specific movement. ABC’s (agility, balance, coordination), speed, strength and advanced tossing/throwing/catching activities. Tennis, focuses on developing all five ball controls (direction, height, depth, speed, spin) and all phases of movement.

Character: Practices have a character theme that can apply to tennis and life because at RippnerTennis we are not just developing champions on the court but champions in life.
