JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT The Junior Development Program is built on a foundation of progressions. Each program offers instruction, competition, social interaction and various opportunities for practice. At every level of our program, we have very simple but specific goals to help your children reach their peak performance. The program is effective because we match each child with the right size court, ball, racquet and skill level for their age and development. There are several levels in the program, each offering a more challenging set of skills, so as children master one level, they progress to the next level. The program is a complete recreational and competitive pathway that includes 10 & under, middle school and high school students. The Junior Development Program will give your children the most comprehensive tennis experience possible.

HOW IT WORKS Each lesson is divided into three basic sections that will be incorporated into each lesson starting with a warm-up emphasizing movement and coordination specific to tennis. The second section is developing specific skills and the last is our game or competitive development section which works on the skills learned each lesson in a point play or game-based format. Our goal is to allow them to play the game and work through the technical side as well. We will be emphasizing rallying, serving and scoring as we create situations that are similar to real tennis playing. At each level, one can expect skill development in the following areas:

EVOLUTION KIDS TENNIS IS BUILT ON EXCITING, ON-COURT MISSIONS AND GIVES YOU THE WEAPONS TO TAKE CONTROL!

COACHING SESSIONS

More than just working on their game but working on their personal skills as well. Building trust, motivation & improvement in all elements.

SOCIAL INTERACTION & EVENTS

Five to six times a year we have a large event for Red, Orange and Green Ball players to focus on competitive skills. Our Evolution World Tour events are a great time for all players to compete in tennis activities – and an amazing opportunity to meet and interact with kids on the court.

PRACTICE

Our Junior Development Program gives players many opportunities to improve their skills and have the freedom to try new things in a fun environment.

COMPETITION

Players get many chances to test what they’ve learned in a play format. Our focus is on improving the process itself.

ADULTS The Greater Midland Tennis Center is one of the first of its kind to build an entire program around adults and their tennis. We want our adult tennis players to learn, train and play great tennis. We want each player that comes through to become the best tennis player they can be. Our programs are designed for the pure beginner up to the advanced tournament player. Each player will leave the program having learned skills to help them enjoy the game for many years to come. Our goal is to provide them with the skills to make tennis a lifelong sport and one that they can share and play with friends and family.
