Youth Programs

Lessons, league play, and after-school programs

Grades K-2

This is an introductory instructional program for children ages 5-7. By age 5 most children have developed many of the gross motor skills necessary to move around the tennis court however their fine motor skills may still be awkward. These children like to run, be active and to hit tennis balls. In this class children will be challenged to develop skills while they have fun! This program may also suit 8 year olds who are small in statue or lacking confidence.


National Junior Tennis League (NJTL)
Target group: ages 8 through 18

Our youth NJTL program puts an emphasis on the team concept of fun, fitness and friends. The focus is to enjoy the exhilaration of exercise and to refine the skills that make tennis fun for players of all ages and levels of ability. Players will be assessed at registration and placed according to ability and age. All abilities welcome!

Players must stay within their appropriate age/grade group. FTA offers beginning, intermediate and advanced group lessons for children ages 8 to grade 5; 6, 7, 8th graders; and grades 9 – 12. Instructors may suggest movement between different skill groups during a session.
