Junior Tennis at West Rock: Teaching tomorrow's tennis stars!
Our goal is to develop life skills using tennis as the vehicle to enable each player to be the best he or she can be. At The West Rock Junior Academy, each player will understand the game of tennis in a new way and learn what it takes to reach their full potential, while becoming mentally tough, physically fit and ready for any challenge that comes their way. Each player is placed in the appropriate level based on ability, maturity, desire and our professional's discretion.
Here at West Rock we have adopted the USTA QuickStart Tennis concepts in our Shining Stars and Hot Shots Programs. QuickStart Tennis is a progressive approach to help children 10 & under learn to play the game and have fun! To make it easierfor children 4 – 10 years old, a few things have changed including the court sizes, the racquet sizes, the balls, and even the net height. QuickStart is about fitting tennis to children the same way it is being done with other youth sports such as soccer and baseball where field sizes and equipment are adjusted based on age and physical size. By modifying the court dimensions, racquets and balls, children will develop better technical and tactical skills. Click here for more information from the official USTA QuickStart Tennis website.
Whether your child is trying tennis for the first time or a seasoned tournament player, regardless of their age, we have a program to satisfy their needs.
