The Lincoln Park Junior Tennis Program offers the foundation for youth tennis players to enjoy the sport of tennis for the first time as well as a path to progress through the ranks of different skill-appropriate levels. These opportunities are made available through group tennis classes and semi-private or private tennis lessons.
FUTURE STARS: Intro to tennis for 3-5-year-olds. Motor skills are developed along with a new love of the game.
UNDER 8-10 STARS: Classes build upon the U5 Future Stars class by introducing elements of basic forehand and backhand, groundstrokes, and volleys. It will also introduce elements of rallying, swing technique, point play, and basic rules of the game. Players are encouraged to develop individual ownership of their improving game. These classes will incorporate drills, activities, and games with each weekly lesson.
UNDER 12-16 STARS: Classes are structured to teach basic hitting skills for beginner tennis players. These classes will focus on basic all-court skills including forehand and backhand, groundstrokes, and volleys. Players will be introduced to basic elements of rallying, swing technique, and body positioning, point play, and competition.
UNDER 10-16 INTERMEDIATES: Classes are structured to progress the U8-U14 Star players to an intermediate level. Skills will become more specialized and technically improved upon while introducing performance and competition-level elements. These classes will specialize in teaching elements such as combining different shots to develop fundamental point play, and introducing higher-level skilled shots: serving, slicing, lobbing, and approach shots. This class will aim to advance players to move up to the Academy level.
