Spring 2018 Junior Programs

Competitive Academy

In the competitive academy players will develop physical literacy skills to move like an athlete, develop a solid technical foundation as well as understand basic tactical situations.

Players progress to the next academy based on their skill development and age.

To practice what they learn, we organize competitive events where players can compete in a fun safe environment — Minor Tennis League and AFTC Junior Tournament.

Each month all junior players are eligible to be nominated as Junior Player of the Month!!! This programs recognizes players who demonstrate enthusiasm, passion and make an effort each week.

To register for any of the academy programs, contact Rufus Nel at 457-2346. We do not accept online registration for these programs.
