Youth Programming

Saint Paul Urban Tennis offers a wide variety of programming for young people. Whether they are looking to try something new or get on a pathway to compete at the highest levels, there is something at SPUT for all youth. We offer three programming categories: Lessons, Camps, and Competition.

(psst... are you an out of school time provider? a P.E. teacher? a community organization? a recreation center? We love building partnerships! Email johnny@urbantennis.org to learn more about what we offer youth engagement organizations!)

Youth Lessons

Lessons are a great place for beginner and intermediate players to learn and grow their game. Our lessons offer a fun and friendly community environment focused on developing a player's tennis and life skills. Players will receive coaching on fundamentals, opportunities to drill and practice, tons of fun games, and will grow through our SPUT S.P.I.R.I.T. (service, perseverance, integrity, responsibility, imagination, teamwork) curriculum.

Youth Camps

Academic Creative Engagement (A.C.E.) Camps integrate tennis with fun off-court math, science, literacy, and creative expression activities to inspire kids to develop a love of learning. We are excited to offer a full summer's worth of half-day camps this year! Our camps are one week long and rotate across the city.

 

Though camps are offered via open registration in the summer, we are excited to create camp opportunities across the Saint Paul community by partnering with schools, recreation centers, and community organizations. Email admin@urbantennis.org to learn more!
