Genesis Aces (DAYTIME practices) / Pre Red (WEEKEND practices) –

Red Ball –

A program of movement, balance, coordination and motor skill development with a focus on self and partner rallying skills on the 36’ court. Athletes will learn how to initiate a rally, how to move and judge a ball (reception and centering skills), how to control the racquet at the contact point and control the height, direction and depth that will be the foundation of their future tennis development

A program of movement, balance, coordination and motor skill development with a focus on self and partner rallying skills on the 60’ court. Athletes will learn how to initiate a rally, how to move and judge a ball (reception and centering skills), how to control the racquet at the contact point and control the height, direction and depth that will be the foundation of their future tennis development

Genesis Green –

Juniors learn the basics of tactical play from the 60’ & 78’ court for both singles and doubles. Swing rhythm on the forehands and backhands will be emphasized, and children will learn how to differentiate between a volley action and a ground stroke action.

Junior Varsity LEVEL ONE / LEVEL TWO –

JV LEVEL ONE is for brand new athletes who have never played before. They will learn how to create a foundation of skills to allow them to rally and play points.

JV LEVEL TWO is for athletes who have been in our program for several sessions and can rally, serve, start the point. In these next 6 weeks we will challenge athletes with a variety of high level drills, footwork and help them on their way to creating confidence and skills to join their high school teams or play JTL.
