Junior Tennis (SLJT) School Year

With SLJT we prioritize camaraderie, character growth, respect, discipline, and of course fun ahead of winning and losing. We utilize a curriculum that allows students to progress with success at every step of the way. We strive to teach much more than tennis and are proud to offer you a program where our students feel more like a family than opponents. Simultaneously we strive to teach rock solid fundamentals, tactics, mental fortitude, physical fitness, and overall general health.
