JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The game of tennis is at the heart of our teaching philosophy. The main goal of our JD program is to make the kids fully autonomous by playing in an age-appropriate match format. They will learn how to adapt to different environments as well analyzing new situations. During our fall session, we will organize Matchplay in individual or team settings. Therefore, our students can transfer the skills they learn in their weekly training to matches.
In addition to training and matches we emphasize values such as respect, sportsmanship and perseverance. Through our program, our students will become more confident in their abilities to succeed and can use these values to not only be a better player but also be a better person.
