Little Stars (Ages 5 through 7)

For our littlest players, this class focuses on basic balance, coordination and athleticism.  We use simple games to develop hand-eye coordination and basic rally skills.  Players in this class will learn how to hit forehands, backhands and serves, and will begin to develop rally skills.  Point play and modified scoring is introduced.  Little Stars play on the 36-foot court using red, low-compression tennis balls.

Super Stars (Ages 7 through 10)

Our Super Stars players continue to work on technique while improving rally skills.  Overhand serves, volleys and basic strategy are introduced.  Players develop aim and learn shot selection.  Match play and regulation scoring are introduced.  Super Stars play on the 60-foot court using orange, low-compression tennis balls.

Big Stars (Ages 8 through 12)

For players who have graduated from Super Stars, Big Stars focuses on advanced technique and introduces specialty shots.  Rally skills are strengthened with players beginning to develop a personal playing style.  Match play is included in every lesson.  Big Stars play on the 78-foot court using green, low-compression tennis balls.
