Tennis Practice


This junior development program is a skills based program that incorporates both technical instruction and age appropriate match play.  Each junior session includes weekly instruction and eventual coached match play on Saturdays.  The program is designed to help players learn how to play tennis via skill development as well as by experiencing the game. Players are formally assessed throughout the year in order to keep track of their individual development and to move them up through the levels of our program.

Each session is focused on helping players to develop the skills they will need to play in events.  The ExCEL Tennis Program follows the format developed by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).  We tailor our program to meet the needs of each player, focusing on the skills that need to be acquired by age. Each level has instruction and play to foster a life-long love for tennis.

We use the USTA format for both instruction and play. This format features modified racquets, balls, courts, and scoring to “right-size” the game for children. This allows junior players to gain skills at a much earlier age in a technically correct way, while having fun learning the game.
