LEVEL DESCRIPTIONS 
 

Developmental I: (Ages 4-6)   Developmental Academy One will focus on the participant’s ability to move with balance and coordination.  There will be a strong emphasis on building agility, while developing the on-court skills necessary to rally, and keep score.  Participants will engage in fun games that will encourage sportsmanship and competitiveness.  Prior to graduating to the next class, players will show the ability to maintain technique during rallies.      

Developmental II: (Ages 7-11)  Developmental Academy Two will focus on the participant’s ability to move with balance and coordination.  This class will maintain an emphasis on building the athletic base for each player.  Players in this group will begin to develop an understanding of shot placement, and depth.  We will emphasize movements forward for short balls, and backwards for deep balls.  Competitive point play will be utilized in a half court setting.  This will develop the skill of directional hitting.  Prior to graduating, players will show the ability to maintain technique while rallying with their peers.                          

Developmental III:(Ages 12-16)  Developmental Academy Three will focus on the development of  forehand and backhand topspin, while progressing the proper service technique.  Players will have the ability to show tennis specific footwork patterns (cross-over, side shuffle, Spanish footwork, flowing split step). Players  will also have an increased understanding of  how to  construct points.  The ability to move the ball and the recognition of open court space will be strongly developed.
