Key Youth Lessons Information

  • Age:  4-10
  • Levels: 1 - 3; please refer to the Level Definitions below to place your student in a class. If you don’t know, talk to a tennis staff member. (Classes are divided into six skill levels and because children develop at different rates a child may spend as much time as necessary at each level and is not pressured to move from one level to the next. A skill test may be used to assist student and teacher in determining when they might need new challenges. Skill tests are one of many tools used by our teaching staff; age and ability are the final determination of what level a student should play.)
  • Equipment: HRCA provides class tennis balls for instruction
  • What to Wear: athletic shoes with non-marking soles
  • What to Bring: Your own tennis racquet and water bottle.
