JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT

RECREATIONAL PATHWAY

TENNIS WHIZZ (Ages 3-4)

Fun Learning Environment Our Junior Development Program is built on a foundation of progressions. Each program offers instruction, competition, social interaction and opportunities for practice. At every level of our program, we have very simple but specific goals to help your children reach his or her peak performance. The program is effective because we match each child with the right sized court, ball, racquet and age level for their 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. We believe our Junior Development Program will give your children the most comprehensive tennis experience possible.

COACHING SESSIONS

PRACTICE

More than just working on their game, our coaches help your child work on their personal skills by building trust, motivation & improvement in all elements of the game.

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

SOCIAL INTERACTION & EVENTS

COMPETITION

Five to six times a year, we have a large event for our Red, Orange and Green Ball players to focus on their competitive skills. These 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 other kids on the court.

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

A LEGACY OF COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Strengthening our community and the greater world – as well as promoting inclusion and diversity in sport and life – is core to our values. We are grateful for the support of the Great Lakes Bay Region community as we continue our sponsorship of the 31st Annual Dow Tennis Classic.

This exciting event – Michigan’s only professional tennis event – celebrates excellence on the court while also helping area students learn more about the sport of tennis and appreciate the diverse international and cultural backgrounds of the players. Our thanks goes out to the community sponsors and volunteers who make this special event possible.
