Rising Stars I

This class is tailored for students with little to no experience playing tennis. Students will be playing with a ball that bounces lower and moves slower through the air, making it easier to hit at a comfortable height, while also providing more time between shots to prepare for the next ball. Players will be taught basic skills of the game, in addition to developing an enjoyment for the sport.

Rising Stars II

This class will continue to use either red, orange, or green dot balls, as players continue to develop basic level technique and tactics. In this stage, players will start to incorporate
simple footwork and movement around the court, in addition to having an introduction to game strategy. Players at this level will feel more at ease hitting the ball with more speed, accuracy, and consistency.
