JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS AGES 9-17


During our outdoor JTT program (Spring, Summer, Early Fall) we offer co-ed tennis teams at three different levels of play:
Green Team (Intermediate Level, Ages 9-11), Purple Team (Intermediate Level, Ages 9-12), and Silver Team (Intermediate Level, Ages 13-17).


Level appropriate stroke technique is required to play on each team. Players are enrolled in the correct group with instructor's permission. Most kids play on the same team for more than one season based on age and ability. Practices include instruction and coaching, drilling, live ball feeding games, match play, strategy, tactics and mental toughness exercises. Players are encouraged to develop both skills and sportsmanship while having fun in a team setting.

GREEN TEAM, Ages 9-12, Green Ball, 78' (Full) Court, 25-27' Racquet.Intermediate/Advanced.

Prerequisite: Orange Level 2 or Fast Track Tennis with instructor permission. The green dot ball is pivotal in developing comfort and success with the full court. Players continue to work on consistency, stroke technique, movement, learn singles and doubles strategy and match play skills.
