Advanced Programs

Our Annual Advanced Program offers top quality training for players with a strong existing foundation of tennis skills. Players have exceeded the skill-set of those in the Intermediate Program, typically participate in training activities at least 3 days per week, and normally participate in provincial competition, ranging from 2-star to 5-star levels, but typically a 3-star level of play.

This year, we are streamlining the program in accordance with U18 and U14 competitive categories, and including increased opportunities for Play as part of the program in both divisions. We also offer a new format of participation through the “Advanced Plus” package, which features increased duration of training sessions and off-court physical preparation included as part of each 3-hour class. This option is ideal for students seeking a more comprehensive training package, similar to master-class but not requiring special schooling arrangements.
