1. What are the levels that the youth program can provide?
Our staff is not only very friendly and encouraging for beginners, we also have a 5.0 tennis player, multiple high school state champions and college level players that are all capable of pushing kids to the level they aspire to be. This means we are capable of offering instruction to any level your child is at!
The programs we offer are based on progress. Players are grouped by ability and have specific goals to move on to the next, more advanced group. Want more info? Click here!

7. If my child is playing for a couple of years and just turned 12, should he or she play in the high level 12 and under group or the next oldest group using the yellow ball?
The next division is a pretty big jump especially for kids that are not that tall because of how the ball bounces. We won't know what division is best for your child until the sign ups are seen so for now sign your child up for the higher level 12 and under and we will look at it in a case by case situation!
8. When will we know about the times for tennis practices for JTT? Also, what is the difference between practices for JTT and the progression program?
We can understand how the practice times are important. Before the season starts the coach of JTT would get ahold of parents and find out a good time that would for for the team. As far as the benefit of the progression practice vs. JTT, the biggest difference will be skills vs. strategy. The progression program is designed to have one coach with the player in that specific group (such as the spin group) where the instructor's main goal is to get the players in his or her group to hit with spin on all shots. The JTT practices involve the coach trying to get the players to understand how to play with strategies and learn how to anticipate more during their matches so they start seeing the patterns of tennis strategy being implemented by them and by their opponent. Both are beneficial in their own ways!
