Junior Tennis Program

The start date of our spring 2017 spring season for RVA is scheduled for the week of April 10th and will run through May 29th.

We will be offering our popular Junior Development Tennis Program for children ages 4-12 on Wednesday and Friday afternoons with start times at 3:30 & 4:30 for a 60 minute session. Please remember to register your child early! There will be a minimum of six and a maximum of eight children per court/instructor. 

If the above program schedule does not work with your child's weekday activities, Coach Tony is available for private & semi-private lessons which would be scheduled separately from our Junior Programs and can be arranged by contacting Coach Tony directly.

Daily Morning Junior Development Tennis Camp

This camp is designed to stimulate and challenge children of all levels, age groups, and abilities. Our future champions will learn more than how to hit a tennis ball, they will learn how to have fun playing the game of tennis. Coach Tony and his professional staff use drills, games, and instructional teaching aids so children will learn simple tasks then move onto more challenging exercises. Every segment quickly builds confidence, focus, and consistency. Racquets, nets, tennis courts and even balls are modified to the appropriate sizes for maximum control and comfort. This accelerates the learning process and produces lasting results in the child’s stroke development and focus. With experience and age, kids then graduate to regulation size courts and equipment.

Kick-Start Junior Academy Sessions (weekly afternoons)

The goal of our Kick-Start Junior Academy Program is to continue the development of players through point/match play experience and cooperative drills at the intermediate level prior to progressing players to advance to organized match play via USTA and T-2 competitive play. Participants must be from ages 8-12 and will be provided the opportunity to learn and grow in the game of tennis as well as develop positive social skills.
The Pure Tennis professional coaching staff is committed to accomplishing Kick-Start objectives through:

•  Instruction and reinforcement of advanced beginner to intermediate tennis technique through staff instruction. Players will learn advanced techniques for forehand and backhand ground strokes, forehand and backhand volleys, serves, lobs and overheads, as well as offensive and defensive strategies.
•  Players will demonstrate and practice singles and doubles play through a combination of cooperative drills and on court tennis games.
•  Players will be instructed in the area of match play. They will learn pressure point situations and will practice learned principles through simulated match play.
•  Players will be taught the importance of good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship enhances a player’s ability to perform well and to maintain self-control. It affords players the opportunity to exhibit self-respect and respect for others. Good sportsmanship allows for the development of friendships. Learning the rules and etiquette of the game of tennis demonstrates a further commitment to good sportsmanship.
 
Kick-Start Structure
Program meets twice weekly 5:00-6:30pm. (Monday & Wednesday afternoons) During this time, players will work on intermediate competitive situations, pressure point simulated match play exercises, and a variety of point/match play situations.
Cost = $345 for an eight week session (two 1.5 hour sessions weekly for eight weeks)
A minimum of six participants is required.
