Junior Tennis Programs, Schedules & Registration
Our youth tennis programs normally run from May 1st – October 31st, and have something for all ages 3+. Our current clinic offerings are below.
And out Junior Tennis Team (JTT) is an intensive six-week team environment, similar to the DSRC Swim Team. Kids practice every weekday and have a tennis match once a week. There are team events, such as pep rallies, team t-shirts and end of season party. Junior Team Tennis allows kids to have fun, be on a team, enjoy team spirit, make friends, and learn to love tennis for a lifetime.
ALL PLAYING LEVELS ARE WELCOME! If your tennis player is nervous or not quite sure if they are ready, please send them for a trial run. We strive to make the JTT an inclusive, fun environment.
Do you need a racquet for your child? Fret not, we sell them in the tennis office and will get them fit with the proper size.

Athletes participating in the junior instructional program will be placed in small groups of 4 to 6 (based on ability/peer group) and run through a series of stations/drills with members of the DSRC Tennis Instructional Staff.
Don’t have a tennis racquet? No worries, we have several to lend to your athlete until ready to purchase.

The Junior Tennis Team (JTT) is one of DSRC’s hallmark programs and is open to DSRC members, ages 4-18 and all levels! This is a fabulous program to get a tennis racquet in the hands of our youngest members and keep it in their hands until they graduate from highschool!!! As a member of the JTT, athletes will hone their skills on ALL basic tennis strokes and learn how to structure and play points to experience success in tennis competition. Tennis is a challenging sport to learn….this opportunity will allow your young human tennis success. All JTT members will participate in weekly practice stroke technique as well as learn strategies to help them win the point! This will be accomplished by a mixture of stroke production practice, strategy sessions and some good old fashion fun!
JTT practices will be aligned with swim team age group practice times. It is the desire of the Club for our young members to experience the best of both of these amazing sports.
