There are four stages to our developmental program; Launch Pad, Hot Shot Red, Hot Shot Orange, and Hot Shot Green. The objective is to adapt the court, balls, racket, and net to the size and strength level of youth players. This allows kids to hone tennis skills and accelerate their development.
LAUNCH PAD &
HOT SHOT RED
Our LaunchPad & Hot Shot Red stages are where it all begins.
Here we introduce our young players to tennis through games and fun activities. During these activities, they will learn the basics of tennis, including how to rally.
By using slower balls, smaller courts, and shorter racquets, players can play the game from their first lesson!
Weekly sign up $30.00 per 30-minute clinic or pre-pay for a package of 8 for $200. Days and times vary.
Hot Shot Red
Clinics are 1 hour, and players register for a 33 week season.
HOT SHOT ORANGE
The next step up from our Hot Shot Red level is Hot Shot Orange. Players move to a larger court, relevant to their size.
Ball is slightly faster than at Red but continues to provide an optimal strike zone.
Matches are longer than at Red, and children play both "team" and "individual" multi-match events
Players have the ability to implement advanced tactics.

and "individual" multi-match competition played.
