Our Junior Program offers classes for kids of all ages and skill. Here at ETC, we strive to develop the players’ game. As players progress from class to class they not only improve their level of play and continue to love the game, but they learn other important skill sets that will allow them to succeed on and off the court.
For the 10 and under player, they will be taught important stroke and footwork fundamentals with a focus on ball tracking and striking skills. As the young player progresses through the 10 and Under classes, they will continue to learn more advanced skills such as open stance footwork, variations of spin, and point play strategies. Players will also be asked to take on more responsibility for their own equipment such as racquets, water, shoes etc.
Our Middle School and High School classes are perfect for the competitive junior either wanting to try out for their team or continue to contribute to their schools’ success. Players in these classes are still learning the proper technical skills required to compete against some of the best players in the area and the state. There is a strong focus on point play and strategy to prepare them for the upcoming season.
Our High Performance classes are designed to ensure players are with their competitive and goal-minded peers. The 12 and Under players continue to learn advanced skill sets, balancing a tournament schedule, and becoming more accountable and responsible for their own tennis. Players over the age of 12 are consistently adding skills to their game. The improving never stops as many are traveling throughout the Midwest and Country to compete in tournaments. Players are held accountable for their attitude, work ethic, sportsmanship and desire to improve.
