Munchkin Tennis (Ages 5-7): Children will work on basic athletic skills needed for tennis with a focus on developing agility, balance and coordination.
Red Ballers (Ages 7-10): Kids will learn and practice forehand and backhand skills and receive an introduction to serve and volley through a variety of racquet and ball activities. The goal of this class is for kids to develop the skills to rally with a partner at least 10 times.
Orange Ballers (Ages 8-11): Kids will learn basic rules and continue to work on rallying the ball with a partner. Focus will be on footwork and sending and receiving skills to help players develop consistency with forehand and backhand ground strokes. Players will learn and practice serve and volley through a variety of racquet and ball activities. Prerequisite: Ability to rally with a partner using red balls. (This is the former Tennis 101 class.)
Green Ballers (Ages 9-12): This class is for kids with prior sports experience who are getting ready to enter age appropriate competition. Players should be able to maintain a ground stroke rally over the net. Players will develop a more complete game with attention to the volley and serve. (This is the former Tennis 201 class.)
Teen Tennis (Ages 13+): Put all of your strokes and footwork together to further strengthen your skills--and practice strategies to help you be successful on the court. Teens will enjoy competitive play while forming new friendships for tennis matches outside of the class!
