Introductory Programs

Mites (Ages 5-7 / 7-9) and Futures (Ages 9-12 / 12-16)

Offering children the opportunity to learn tennis correctly at a young age is a great gift.

We believe it is crucial that people receive excellent instruction at the beginning of their tennis experience and that is why some of our most capable and experienced teachers act as leaders for our Introductory Programs. Our extensive use of modified equipment allows students the opportunity to rapidly develop their strokes and skills, and successfully play the game in a court suited to their age and size.

This is our popular program for beginning to intermediate players. We use modified equipment and careful progressions to lead students through the crucial first steps in skill development. Our fun, game-based approach emphasizes the use of skills in game situations and friendly competition. By the end of the first day kids will be rallying and keeping track of score, and by the end of session they will know all the basic playing situations, rules and etiquette of matchplay for both singles and doubles.
