Registration for GVRC’s new Junior Progression Program first session is open. To register for a clinic, please contact GVRC.

The Junior Progression Program follows the USTA guidelines for ages 5-18. Our junior clinics are play-based instruction using age appropriate tennis balls, racquets, and court size. Players progress through red, orange, green, and yellow balls as they learn technical and competitive skills. (See descriptions below.)

We will have four sessions for each skill level below starting in September 2020. There will be a maximum of four players per clinic.
