Junior Tennis

It’s never too young to get them started on the courts! Children as young as three years old can participate in Hempfield recCenter’s tennis program. 

 

Tennis Speed & Agility Training

Designed to focus on making the tennis athlete more efficient, explosive and powerful in their foot movements. We’ll target specific areas of footwork such as deceleration, stability, mobility, acceleration, reaction time, and lateral movement.  Understanding tennis speed begins and ends with achieving a solid foundation of fundamental athletic and strength movement patterns.

Taught by Bob, Koenig, NSPA Certified Speed & Agility Coach.

RPM Junior Tennis Player Pathways

YM Introducing a new approach to junior tennis training! Using the United States Tennis Associations’s Net Generation platform, Hempfield recCenter has designed a brand new, cutting-edge curriculum to help players get REVVED UP about tennis.

Two new player pathways—RPM Junior Tennis and RPM Elite Junior Tennis each include competencies based on serving, return of serve, play from the baseline, play at the net, and competition. Within each step of each pathway, players will master competencies and tasks before advancing to the next level or moving to another pathway.
