Silver Lake Junior Tennis (SLJT) offers year around tennis training for students ages three to eighteen. We offer beginner classes for every age. Aside from our developmental program that covers all ages, we offer a high performance program for ages ten to eighteen where students set their goals towards college tennis and beyond.
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.
Summer quarter for our Junior Tennis Program is finished for 2023. Please check back early next year for information on our 2024 Summer Programming. We have camps and classes going throughout the summer. Camp details are listed below. If you can’t commit to an entire camp we have the SLJT classes running all summer long as well.
