Description

Staley Tennis Academy’s junior pathway program is focused on initiating 10 & under players into the sport.  We work with Net Generation to train young players the right way.  We equip them with the correct racquets, transition balls and nets and appropriately sized courts for each age group. Our drills focus on the ABCs (agility, balance and coordination skills) needed to develop into a complete junior player.

Players will earn graduation certificates from each program and unique tennis-specific report cards each season. All players in the Junior Pathway will be first in line for all future academy openings.

Players will be initially placed based on age in one of three groups at our academy until a proper assessment is made by the head pro in order to advance them beyond their age group.

The three programs are:

  1. Red Ball—Our Red Ball Program is for beginning tennis players ages 4-8 (K-2nd grade).  We utilize the USTA’s Net Generation activities, drills and fun games to build this phase of player.  Sessions are once per week and one-hour long. Players will be on a red court (36’ x 18’) with mini-nets, and red felt balls.
  2. Orange Ball—Our Orange Ball Program is for beginning tennis players ages 7-10 (2nd-4th grade).  We utilize the USTA’s Net Generation activities, drills and fun games to build this phase of player.  Sessions are once per week and one-hour long. Players will be on an orange court (60’ x 21’) with orange felt balls.
  3. Green Ball—Our Green Ball Program is for players ages 9-11 (4th-6th grade).  We utilize the USTA’s Net Generation activities, drills and fun games to build this phase of player.  Sessions are once per week and one-hour long. Players will be on a regular court with green felt balls.
