TENNIS CLINICS

For our 10-and-under kids, WSTC has implemented QuickStart Tennis. QuickStart is the United States Tennis Association's recommended format for teaching 10-and-unders the game of tennis.

The QuickStart format uses softer balls and a smaller court. It's scaled to the size of the child. Frustration is cut way down when equipment and rules match kids’ development level. Kids learn tennis faster and can master skills before moving on to the next level.

They’re playing real tennis and having a lot of fun at the same time. Kids build confidence in their game with balls they can hit and a court they can cover.

With shorter matches, more kids can play competitively more often. Kids are more likely to keep playing and improve their tennis game when they’re having fun.

WSTC 10-and-under tennis clinics are group lessons that incorporate a progressive approach to tennis, by using modified courts and equipment where children quickly begin to rally and play matches. Coaches help students build a strong foundation beginning with balance and coordination, then reinforcing move, stop, hit and recover. As kids progress, they learn how to move more efficiently to the ball, incorporating footwork, ball tracking skills and various spins.

The Juniors Clinic is ideal for slightly older kids who are not ready to move up to the big court and a regular tennis ball. Coaches first assess player skill levels so they get the right level of instruction.

1) Beginners: Coaches help players by creating a simple foundation of move, stop, hit and recover by focusing on a consistent contact point on the forehand and backhand.

2) Kids with previous exposure to tennis: they show good balance and consistent contact points on groundstrokes. They can rally and play mini-matches. They have started to redirect the ball away from their opponent.

3) Kids who can consistently rally independent of instructor: these players have a better understanding of court geometry and use space by changing depth and angle of shots. Different grips and spins are being used.
