INTRODUCTORY BCTA JR. TEAM TENNIS

Low-key, age- and skill- appropriate competition as well as team fun make this program perfect for participants who have previously been involved in BCTA’s Learn, Practice & Play programs and players on middle and high school teams.  This co-ed program adopts the “learn- by-playing” model common in other youth sports.  A 90 minutes practice is held each week at a pre-determined site with a coach dividing the practice session into skill development drills and supervised play.

Age categories:

  • Little Aces (recommended ages 8–10) (36-foot court) (Red ball)
  • Juniors (recommended ages 11–13 (60/78-foot courts) (Orange/Green ball)

Participants must have some basic rallying skills and the ability to try an overhand serve for first serve and underhand for second (if needed).  The coach will introduce them to scoring, strategy, etc.  Athletes who are uncertain about their skill level should consult their BCTA coach.  Learn, Practice and Play offers play-by-learning, but it more focused on basic skill development.

 

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL/HIGH SCHOOL TRAINING

This program is designed to get kids ready for fall team tennis with practice twice a week for three weeks!  Each practice, conducted by a BCTA Coach, includes 90 minutes of drills, supervised play, and Cardio.

 

 

ADVANCED BCTA JR. TEAM TENNIS TRAINING

This advanced training program, which requires a BCTA or high school coach recommendation, is ideal for teens who are playing on their high school team or in the Saturday spring USTA Jr. Team Tennis Program!  Players practice at 90 minutes once a week at a pre-determined site.  Co-ed travel teams consist of 6 to 8 players each (18-and-under and 14-and-under) to play home and away matches on Saturday afternoons (Note: away matches will be played at other sites in Bucks County.)
