Youth Tennis

The HRCA has tennis programs, for children ages 4-18, are are designed to be fun and instructional. The classes are divided into six skill levels to help develop young tennis players. A child may spend as much time as necessary at each level and should not be pressured to move from one level to the next.

Children will develop at different rates according to many different factors such as age, amount of individual practice time, and athletic ability. Skill tests are used only to assist students in determining when they might need new challenges that could be better met in another skill level. Skill tests are one of many tools that are used by our teaching staff, the final determination of what level a student should play at will be made by the teaching professional.
