Junior Tennis

Welcome to SHYC Junior Tennis

SHYC Junior Tennis Lessons are segmented by age, with class groupings further broken out by skill, age, and social groupings. We offer multiple levels of classes for red, orange, green and yellow ball players. Younger developing players will play Red Ball and work on hand-eye coordination, strokes, footwork and the fun of the game. Older, more experienced players will move into Orange, Green, and Yellow Balls. These players will continue to work on stroke basics and footwork, while also building their speed, agility, and endurance; game-play will round out the curriculum. All lessons will be fun and incorporate a variety of fun drills, learning games, and more.
