Junior Programs

The primary goal of the Junior Program at the Minnetonka Tennis Club is to teach and promote the fundamentals of tennis within a fun, encouraging, and creative atmosphere. In the summer, most of the juniors will participate in the National Junior Tennis League where area country clubs and community programs play informal singles and doubles matches against one another.

The Junior Program is divided into the following categories:

Tiny Stars

Tiny stars is an introduction to the sport of tennis for children ages 5 to 7. Each class is 45 minutes long, where having fun is the primary goal. Players will learn forehand and backhand ground strokes and volleys.

Advanced Tiny Stars:

Advanced Tiny Stars is for children ages 5 – 7 who have previously participated in our Tiny Stars Program. The teaching staff will select players for this level. Each class is 45 minutes long where preparing for the beginner level is the goal. Players will learn forehand and backhand ground strokes, volleys and begin to rally.

Beginner

Beginner students will experience a one hour long class for children 7 – 11 who have little or no playing experience. Players will be exposed to all aspects of tennis including ground strokes, volleys, serves, returns, along with a variety of fun tennis games. Introduction to scoring will be covered during the session.

Advanced Beginner

Advanced Beginner students ages 7 – 11 with some formal instruction. Players will be exposed to all aspects of tennis including ground strokes, volleys, serves, returns and point/match play. Students need to be able to “feed” a ball (bounce hit to another player), get in 7 out of 10 serves, rally from the baseline, and keep score before moving up to the Beginning Intermediate level. Players will need to demonstrate proper technique.

Teen Beginner

Teen Beginner is similar to the Beginner/Advanced Beginner classes but for players age 12 and up with limited tennis playing experience. Players will be exposed to all aspects of tennis including ground strokes, volleys, serves and returns.

Beginning Intermediate

Beginning Intermediate players will experience intermediate techniques at a moderate pace. This class is for those students who have moved up from the Advanced Beginner or Teen Beginner class. Students will focus on learning basic singles and doubles strategies and must know how to properly play and score a game.

Intermediate:

Intermediate students are required to hit all of the shots and have the ability to play full court tennis. Improving stroke mechanics along with singles and doubles strategies is the main focus of the class. Again, proper technique will need to be exhibited before advancement to the next level.

Advanced Intermediate:

Advanced Intermediate participants are highly motivated, hard-working players who are on their middle school or junior high teams. Players are working on topspin and slice ground strokes, spin serves and more advanced strategies. Students must play a minimum of two times per week; exceptions made for those participating in another same season sport, with approval by the Junior Tennis Director.

Advanced:

Advanced players have mastered topspin forehands and backhands, spin serves and display game strategy when playing each point. Students must play a minimum of two times per week; exceptions made for those participating in another same season sport, with approval by the Junior Tennis Director.

Invitational:

Invtational students are on their respective high school varsity or junior varsity teams plus AND compete in tournaments. Students must demonstrate dedication to developing their game! Players will be able to demonstrate a variety of strategies throughout their matches. Players are selected by the teaching staff.

Tournament Players Group:

Tournament Players Group: Dedicated tournament players will be selected by the teaching staff through an application process. Players must play at least 2 times per week and are expected to independently register for a tournament each session. Conditioning and physical training are major components of this class. Juniors need to fill out an application to be considered for this select group.

Boys Varsity Invitational Group

Boy’s Varsity Invitational Group: This group will be for varsity level boys from the area and others invited to the group. Stroke development, strategy, competitive/intense games and match play will be the focus of this group.
