Junior Programs - Spring 2022

The framework for our junior programs is based on exceptional stroke production and technique, mental fortitude, and high-level fitness and conditioning. From our beginner clinics to our elite academy, our players are fueled with energy from our coaches, and one another. ​

Our Junior program outlined below will run through June 18th, 2022. We are offering a 30-day trial period for nonmembers. During that time, our standard $5 guest fee/visit will be waived. In order to provide the best experience for your child and also prepare our staff, we ask that you contact our Junior Program Coordinator, Jack Bippus at Juniors@rcwtennis.com prior to your child starting any programs
