All clinics will begin AUGUST 29th, 2017.

Quickstart: Introduction to tennis for the youngest of players.  Quickstart is a relatively new format to help children learn to play tennis. To make it easier for them, we have adjusted the court size, racquet size and use a special low pressurized tennis ball.

Beginner Clinic: This is for players that have never played or have just started tennis.  These kids are still learning the basics in tennis technique and fundamentals.  They will learn the proper grips, stroke production and basic footwork.

Intermediate Clinic: This is for players that have a good understanding of basic tennis technique, fundamentals and concepts.  They can hit both forehands, backhands, volleys and serves on a consistent basis.  The intermediate players are beginning to play in matches and are learning basic tennis strategy when competing in singles and doubles.

High Performance: This is for advanced players that are consistently competing in USTA tournaments or on a varsity High School team.

Team and Tournament Players: This is for players that are interested in competing on the SDTC Smashers team.  Please contact Max Bauer if you want more info on Junior Team Tennis.
