SCRA Junior Tennis Clinic Information
The SCRA junior clinic program is a progressive plan where children move through the levels as their athletic and tennis skills develop. In all of our quick start classes we stress the athletic development A,B,C's: agility, balance, coordination and speed.  Within each age group students are placed with others at the appropriate level. Students may register for one, two, or three days per week. Registering for multiple days provides for optimum learning and improvement. 


Class Descriptions
:

Little Tennis and Sports Skills Ages 3 - 5 (Pre K)  - This relaxed environment will help participants to establish a base for gross motor and athletic skill development. Development of general athleticism is more important for kids this age than tennis specific skills.  We'll use fun games to teach kids how to throw, catch, track balls, and learn to move with good balance and posture.  As players progress we will use modified tennis equipment to begin to apply these skills in a more tennis specific way.  

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR THIS CLASS.  FOR SCHEDULE AND PRICING DETAILS SEE THE JUNIOR TENNIS PAGE ON THE SCRA WEBSITE.
