Beginner High School: Dates TBD
Our Intermediate program ages 11-17 is meant for those students who have been playing tennis for a little while and are looking for a more intensive opportunity to advance their game. The clinics will focus heavily on stroke development, as well as match play tactics. We envision this course as a “bridge” into our Advanced Group which is composed of competitive tennis players with tournament ambition and wanting to play on their middle and high school. Players are strongly encouraged to include 2days/week and participation in the singles ladder is encouraged. Instructor approval required.
Our Advanced clinics are for the tennis player playing middle or high school tennis. Our balanced coaching style encourages the student to first develop consistency, situational awareness, and the ability to train well with others. All facets of the game are covered, including proper ball striking technique off the forehand and backhand sides, serve technique and variety, as well as proficiency at the net. Regular competitive match play is strongly encouraged for all participants. Applying learned skills in a competitive match situation will help the student build confidence, understand their own playing style, as well as realize any weaknesses to improve. Throughout the sessions, much importance is placed on learning correct court positioning, strategy, and tactical awareness in both singles and doubles, as these skills are necessary for higher-level tennis. Tennis-specific fitness will also be included in the sessions. Participation in the ladder, Junior Team Tennis and tournaments are strongly encouraged.
The USTA has put together a fantastic program to get people onto the tennis courts.

Summer is a special time of the year for children. No school, warm weather, time with friends and summer camps! This is coach Kirstie's favourite time of the year. She loves teaching summer camps because the children see such a marked improvement in just a short time. During the camps, we cover all the strokes of tennis, scoring, strategy, tennis etiquette and we even play a tennis tournament on the last day. It is a jammed filled morning with tons of tennis, games, matches and a quick dip in the pool. The camps are for players of all skill levels aged 7-18. The High School Boot Camp is for players trying out for their middle and high school teams, prior experience is required. During the boot camp, we will focus on conditioning, strategy, match play.
