                                Clinic/Ball Descriptions 

RED BALL- Boys and girls ages 4-7.  Using smaller racquets, shorter nets, and a "red ball" that moves slower and bounces lower your child will learn basics such as the parts of the racquet and court. They will also learn the strokes including forehand, backhand, serves, volleys and overheads.


* Advanced Red Ball (JTT)- For kids age 5-8 who already have their groundstrokes down, have done at least two seasons of red ball, are started rallying and are ready to try playing matches during clinic, and potentially compete for our 8u red ball JTT (Junior Team Tennis) team.
ORANGE BALL- Boys and girls ages 8-10. This ball is a step up in difficulty from the larger, softer Red Ball.  Children will work on basic stroke production, begin to rally, learn scoring, and begin match play in preparation for youth match play.
GREEN DOT Pre JTT- Ages 12 & Under Beginner.  This class is meant for kids ages 10-12 and Under who are beginning tennis or are working towards rallying from the baseline. The green dot ball is one step under the real tennis ball, and is slightly more manageable. 
Intermediate/JTT 12u/14u

This clinic is designed for kids interested in or already playing on a Bantam/JTT Team. The clinic will focus on stroke production, consistency, point play in preparation for matches and/or USTA tournaments.  You may register for the clinic and team separately. 

INTERMEDIATE/JTT 18u-  A clinic for girls and boys who are interested in continuing to play tennis at a higher level and/or for kids playing on the 14u/18u Intermediate/JTT Team or their middle school/high school team.  You may register for the clinic and team separately.
