Junior Competition Program

If your child would like to compete in local and regional tournaments, play high school and even, someday, play college tennis, the place to start is the Junior Competition Program.

Players are encouraged to play at least three days a week, compete in local tournaments, and actively work on their games in a serious and focused manner.

And as is true of all our programs, the competition program is a positive one. You won’t find coaches ‘motivating’ players with harsh tones of voice or belittling comments — only genuine appreciation for a job well done and gentle, constructive feedback when it will help someone get over an obstacle.
