At this level we introduce shot selection, tactics, and patterns of play while continuing to develop the child’s game and style of play. The clinics are 1½ hours in duration, on-court for 1 hour and off-court for 30 minutes of movement, footwork, overall coordination and fitness in our state-of-the-art speed and agility training facility. The program is limited to 4 kids per 78’ by 27’ court and use 25% slower tennis balls that bounce at a level proportionate to a child’s height.
Match Play: Players are encouraged to participate in the 1½ hour Saturday match play, where learning from the clinics is put into the context of a competitive match. All packages are designed to make match play extremely economical, even if a player cannot attend every weekend.
Video Analytics: we use of the innovative Playsight video analytics system to breakdown every aspect of our players’ games, including shot speed, placement and height over net. All player stats are posted online to review with coaches to improve their games!
Physical Conditioning: Each clinic includes a 30-minute session of movement, footwork and stamina in our 2,000sqft speed and agility studio with our Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructors.
Student/Pro Ratio: Kept at 4:1. This is a significantly better ratio than would be found in other programs, providing greater interaction between coaches and players while keeping it fun & focused.
USTA Team Tennis: Offered to a limited number of players. For inquiries or to join a team, please contact Kendra Becker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program is led by Kendra Becker, Director of Junior Tennis and staffed by selected tennis pros with a particular aptitude for developing younger players.
Kendra started coaching young players when she was just 14 year old and has coached at a high school and country clubs. She traveled to Spain with a group of juniors to train at an academy.
In her previous role at a large tennis facility, she helped start a pilot program testing modified court and low compression balls for junior development. Over 500 kids participated in the pilot which was a contributing factor in the USTA’s decision to implement programs with racquets, court and balls specifically designed for younger children.
