CLASS DESCRIPTIONS 
MINI SPARTANS
AGE: 3-5
 
 

The Mini Spartans program is by far the most comprehensive and immersive tennis program for kids. Through a variety of skill-based activities that promote fun and play, each young player trains all the skills required to excel at the game of tennis and soccer.  We use the European Player Development System that accelerates each child's improvement exponentially to maximize their talent and ignite their love of the game. 

TITANS JR ACADEMY
AGE: 8-12
The Titans Jr Academy takes it up a notch for our young players.  Focused on developing strong technical, mental and strategic foundations, this is the path for those in elementary school that aspire to play on their middle school and high school tennis teams. Get ready for accelerated improvements! 

Titans Jr Academy is for kids 8-12.  We accept exceptionally talented younger kids with the approval of the Tennis Director (please contact us at to discuss.)

 

We offer two teams in the Titans Jr. Academy, and our #1 goals is their fast progression to the next level and admission in the Tennis Central Academy.


Please select the correct level for your child.  We reserve the right to reassign players once they are in the program in their best interest.

TITANS JR ACADEMY YELLOW:

This team is designed to inspire players with little experience and those not yet able to rally balls consistently with a love for tennis and show them a vision for what is possible for their game.  Our gentle methodology combines proper technique with low-stress exercises and games to create confidence, muscle memory and a level of comfort with the basics. Players should be motivated to learn quickly.  Committed players in Titans Jr Academy Yellow typically move up to Titans Jr Academy Green within 6 months.

TITANS JR ACADEMY GREEN:

Titans Jr Academy Green is designed to bring intermediate-level players up to compete at the next level. Participants should be comfortable with tennis fundamentals, be able to rally the ball consistently and have a good level of fitness to rally with players of all levels. In this class they will play more live-ball drills that introduce strategic comprehension and develop their tennis IQ.

SPARTANS PLUS
AGE: 6-8
 
 

Through a variety of hand-eye coordination activities and targeted ball control and footwork exercises, each young player accelerates his/her tennis learning curve.  The Spartan Plus program is designed to ramp up their tennis IQ, technical skills, ball control, efficiency, and further increase a strong affection for the game and inspiration to improve.  

TENNIS CENTRAL ACADEMY
AGE: 12+

Get ready for accelerated improvements!  Our 1.5 hour training sessions are fast, intense and challenging.  Levels are identified quickly and each gets level-specific coaching.  Academy is for kids 12+.  We accept exceptionally talented younger kids with the approval of the Tennis Director (please contact us at to discuss.)

 

For our younger players class focuses on technical development, confidence boosting, and strategic exploration. 

 

For our more seasoned players and those competing in tournaments, this program is play-based and not shot-based which means that we re-create all the strategic scenarios players will face to develop the best responses to each situation. For those players that are determined to play for their varsity high school team and have aspirations to play in college, this practice should be combined with our Atomic UTR competition.

 

We have TWO STAGES in our competitive development. Please select the correct level for your child.  We reserve the right to reassign players once they are in the program in their best interest.

ACADEMY ORANGE:

These are players that will gradually be introduced to competition. They range from low-intermediate to intermediate players. The common thread between them is that they lack competition and typically fear it.  Our process is perfectly designed to turn their fears into might and boost their confidence. Committed players in Academy Orange typically move up to Academy Blue within 6 months.

ACADEMY BLUE:

Our Academy Blue team is for high-performance players. Tennis is a circuit sport which means that successful participants are used to playing tournaments regularly. This transition is where the tennis industry loses most of the youth interest. Our care combined with our advanced coaching knowledge guarantees a smooth progression from fearing competition to having a winning mindset and tools to succeed.  Our Academy Blue players are committed to playing at least 1 tournament a month.
