Junior Tennis

Tennis Clinics & Camps

Our coaching philosophy and emphasis is geared toward sharing the love of the game of tennis.  We love to play – to play the game and have fun while we are doing it – and this is a very powerful tool to engage kids and encourage learning.  Players will grow in their tennis and athletic skills while bringing home some of the more subtle and valuable life lessons that come with playing tennis.  We always emphasize tennis etiquette, good sportsmanship, integrity, best effort, and FUN!

JETT = Junior Elite Tennis Teams

Our Junior Elite Tennis Teams are a select group of junior players who show promise and commitment to tennis.  Our team practices focus on tournament preparation.   We accomplish this by focusing on drills, strategy, fitness, and the mental game.  Players are invited to join the teams by our Club Pros who have seen them in action.

Please contact Matt Iwersen about team availability by calling the club at 360-733-5050.
