The Program

The Jr. Development Program is designed for the total development of the Junior tennis player. Private lessons provide individual attention. Clinics reinforce the skills learned in the private lesson. Play strategies are emphasized in structured games and during playday matches. Tournament trips are scheduled throughout the year to provide coaching and match analysis. The Jr. Development Program provides a total learning environment.

Jr. Development students participate in a weekly program consisting of:

One Hour Private Lesson

Individual strokes and styles of play are emphasized specific to the students needs.DSC00106


Instructor controlled drills are used to polish existing strokes, develop movement, and create play situations. An outstanding instructor-to-player ratio assures plenty of individual attention.


Students apply what they learned in lessons and clinics to real match situations. Playday is organized and closely monitored by Brian and other staff members.

Makeup Policy

Clinics canceled because of weather will be rescheduled if needed (we have 3 days set aside for rain and tournament misses factored  into the cost of the program). If you miss clinic for your own reasons there is no makeup (ie. sickness or minor injury). A full staff is always maintained at clinics. Private lessons must be made up. The Club has a 24 hour cancellation policy that will be enforced!
