This is a terrific choice as a companion group for the top level junior classes. This will not be a technique class, but an introduction to match play, strategy, scoring and point construction. Kids must have some experience in serving, have the ability to return and sustain short rallies. The Development Group is great for players who want to play against other developing juniors, and offers the option to move up to the Competitive Group if the player rapidly improves.
Development Group will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:30 -
3:00 PM starting the week of June 18 and continuing through August 22 (1:30 - 2:30 PM in August). The cost of the program is $85.
The Competitive Group will focus predominantly on match play. Players should be able to comfortably serve, return, rally and score. Practices will consist of practice matches and occasional drills for perfecting technique and point construction. This group will compete against other clubs in Friday matches. A match schedule will be sent out to parents at the start of the summer.
Competitive Group will run from June 19 to August 23. Practices will
be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 - 3:00 PM, 1:30 - 2:30 PM in August. On Fridays, competitive matches will generally be held from 1:00 - 3:00 PM at GTCC or the opposing team's club. The cost of the program
