Junior Pathway

A.C. Nielsen Tennis Center’s Junior Tennis Pathway is a progressive, skill-based program designed for tennis players ranging from ages 4.5 to 18 years old. Our USPTA certified tennis coaching professionals will work directly with students to help them develop the skills required to participate in tennis for a lifetime. Players will be moved through the levels ranging from introductory or foundational to recreation, and/or competitive based on their ability to demonstrate the required skills, rather than pacing player’s progression according to a pre-specified timeframe. This approach ensures that every student is given the necessary instruction required to improve, and are grouped with other players of a similar skill level. The below chart illustrates the progression through each level.

Additional special events, specialty classes, private lessons camps, leagues and tournaments supplement the comprehensive junior tennis program.
