We will be following USTA guidelines and curriculum starting at Pee Wee (ages 3-5) all the way to beginner/intermediate(ages 7-10).
Pee Wee Tennis Ages 3-5: An introduction to basic gross motor skill development in a relaxed environment. Our goal is to begin developing the athlete first rather than focus too much on specific tennis skills. We will teach the kids how to catch, throw, track balls, and learn to move with balance.
Red Ball Ages 5-8: Kids are introduced to tennis in a fun and supportive way using modified courts and equipment. The Red Ball classes emphasize a fun, game-based approach to learning tennis. The scaled down equipment used will allow juniors to achieve ball control and rally skills more quickly.
Orange Ball Ages 7-10: Kids are reinforcing skills from the previous level. At the orange ball level, we are introducing a larger court and longer racquet. Instruction emphasizes a game-based approach to tennis. The scaled down equipment will allow juniors to achieve ball control and rally skills more quickly. The focus will be on fun while learning game based skills.
Will be held at the Hamlin Park Courts – in case of inclement weather, class will be cancelled - Check www.aurorarec.com or call 652-8866. Racquets may be borrowed upon request at court.
. Once I register for an activity, will I receive any notice or reminder that the program is starting?
A. The only confirmation you will receive after an online registration is an email receipt. You will not receive any further reminders. If you register by mail, you will receive an email receipt if we have your email address. Otherwise, you will only be notified if there is not space available. We do not send reminders of programs starting.
Q. My child is on a wait list for a program. How will I know when a spot has opened up?
A. You will receive an email notification. If you let us know in advance you would prefer a phone call, we'll call you when your child is moved from the wait list. If, after the email notification has gone out and we haven't heard from you, we will call you. Keep in mind that we use the information that's in your online account, so it's important that it's up-to-date and accurate.
Q. Can I register for multiple waiting list spots if my child is already registered for a class that session.
A. No, once you are registered for a swim lesson in a session you may not register for multiple waiting list spots in hopes of changing your time slot.
Q. Can my child’s friend have my spot in a class or on the waiting list if we are unable to attend?
A. No. We cannot transfer registrations to friends.
