Junior Recreation Pathway

Junior Recreation Tennis Pathway
2019 Upcoming Session Dates: January 29 - March 9

Jr. Recreation is the perfect way to introduce your child to the game! This pathway is organized by age and features multiple layers of specialized training tools, drills, and games. Young players will utilize smaller courts, lower nets, low compression balls (red, orange, green), and child-sized racquets. These modifications allow our beginning players to dig in & truly experience the excitement and fun of playing the game of tennis.

The AVAC® teaching approach is built around the proven success of the 10 and Under Program defined by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
