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 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, three or 4 days per week. Registering for multiple days provides for optimum learning and improvement.

Stanford Campus Recreation Association:  Spring Tennis Program, 2016

April 11th- May 27th  (7 Week Program)

Tennis Director:  Jason Beardslee (650) 725-7453 or jbeards@stanford.edu

 

Little 10s/Pre K:  Ages 3-5  (45 minute class, 1-2 times/week)

An introduction to basic gross motor skill development in a relaxed environment.  Our goal is to begin developing the athlete first rather than focus too much on tennis specific skills.  We will teach kids how to catch, throw, track balls, and learn to move with good balance and posture.  As the athlete progresses we will apply these skills in a more tennis specific way.

Classes Offered: 

Tuesdays 2:15-3:00pm

Thursdays 3:00-3:45pm

 

Red Ball:  Ages 4-8 (1 hour classes, 1-3 times/week)

Kids are introduced to tennis in a fun and supportive way using a modified court and equipment.  The Red Ball classes emphasize a fun, game based approach to learning tennis.  The scaled down equipment used will allow juniors to achieve ball control and rally skills more quickly.  By the time your child advances to the next level they should be able to rally consistently in a red ball court.

Classes Offered:

Tuesdays 3:00-4:00pm

Wednesdays 3:00-4:00pm

Fridays 3:00-4:00pm

 

Orange Ball: Ages 7-10 (1 hour classes, 1-3 times/week)

Kids are reinforcing skills from the previous level.  At the orange ball level, we are introducing a larger court and longer racquet.  Instruction emphasizes a game based approach to tennis.  The scaled down equipment will allow juniors to achieve ball control and rally skills more quickly.  Advanced orange ball players may be invited to play in “in house” play days and then moving to local area team tennis leagues.  By the time your child advances to the next level they should have a consistent serve, be able to rally consistently in the orange ball court as well as have an understanding of topspin and underspin. 

Classes Offered:

Tuesdays 3:00-4:00pm

Wednesdays 3:00-4:00pm

Fridays 3:00-4:00pm

 

 

 

Green Dot Ball: Ages 9-11 (1.5 hour classes, 1-4 times/week)

Kids are reinforcing skills from the previous level.  At the Green Dot level, the kids are using a full size court and many are using a full size racquet.  We emphasize using a game based approach to improve footwork, strokes, spins, and basic strategies for singles and doubles.  .  The more advanced players are offered play opportunities outside of class beginning with “in house” play days and then moving to local area team tennis leagues. 

When leaving Green Dot, the Yellow Ball should be an easy transition.

 

Classes Offered:

Tuesdays 4:00-5:30pm

Wednesdays 4:00-5:30pm

Thursdays 4:00-5:30pm

Fridays 4:00-5:30pm (Match Play Friday)

 

Yellow Ball: Ages 11 & Over (1.5 hour class, 1-4 times/week)

The Yellow Ball group is geared for players 11 and up with extensive match play experience.  Players at this level can serve, rally, and keep score.  Instruction emphasizes movement, stroke and tactical development in a games based approach.  The more advanced players are offered play opportunities outside of class beginning with “in house” play days and then moving to local area team tennis leagues. 

Classes Offered:

Tuesdays 4:00-5:30pm

Wednesdays 4:00-5:30pm

Thursdays 4:00-5:30pm

Friday 4:00-5:30pm (Match Play Friday)

 

Match Play Friday 4-5:30pm:  Ages 10-18

This clinic is reserved for those juniors who can rally and serve consistently and who can benefit from more match experience.  This clinic will focus on point play, competition, match toughness, and assessing strengths and weaknesses.  Ladder matches will also happen during this clinic.  Limited spots available.  Please contact Jason with any questions you may have regarding your child’s readiness for this clinic. 

Class Offered:

Friday’s 4:00-5:30pm
