Junior Development – Spring: January 8 – May 31, 2018
As of June 26, 2017 we have revamped our camp structure. We will offer two types of camps:
1. Junior Development Program
2. Specialty Camps
Junior Development Program:
Our Junior Development program is offered year round in four different sessions; summer, fall, winter and spring. There are 5 different types of camps that will each offer different sessions once or multiple times per week. Generally, we will follow the USTA guidelines regarding age, racquet size, court size and ball type. For more information, please click here.
We urge you to register your child in the below mentioned and age appropriate group. If you feel your child does not belong in the group, please contact us before registering.
|Mini Utes||Red Dot||3-8yrs||1 hour|
|Future Utes||Orange Dot||7-10yrs||1 hour|
|Champion Utes||Green Dot||9-11yrs||1 or 2 hours|
|College Utes||Yellow||11-18yrs||2 hours|
|Grand Slam Utes||Yellow||11-18yrs||2 hours|
If your child has never played tennis before, or cannot rally on a consistent basis, regardless of age, we highly recommend the Mini-Ute program!
Our Mini Utes are our youngest and brightest starts. We teach basic racquet, and coordination skills in a fun environment. By USTA guidelines, these kids will play with a red dot ball on a smaller court and a lower net. By the end of the Mini-Utes program, kids should be able to rally.
Our Future Utes program is intended for those kids ages 7-9 who have basic rally skills. We still focus on fundamental stroke production and coordination, but we will also introduce point play. By USTA guidelines kids will play on a USTA Quickstart sized court with orange dot balls.
In the age group of 9-12, our Champion Utes, should transition to intermediate stroke production, as well as more complex rally and strategies. By USTA guidelines kids will play on a normal sized court with green dot balls.
Our College Utes program is intended for beginner and intermediate yellow ball players. Our focus will be on basic to intermediate technique and strategy, in a mix of fed ball and live ball drills and games.
Grand Slam Utes:
Our Grand Slam Utes program is intended for the high performance players that play competitive tennis tournaments on a regular basis. We will focus on advanced techniques, strategy and point play, mostly in live ball drills and games. Grand Slam Utes must be able to rally to register!
For any questions on which camp to register your future tennis star, please feel free to contact us.
