2024 SUMMER CAMPS! Be the First to Know When Registration Opens!

Future Champs

JTCC offers a pathway for youth of all ages to develop their interest in the sport of tennis to reach their full potential. The Future Champs program (formerly known as the Junior Development program) is session-based and designed for beginner to intermediate players. Red and Orange classes are for children ages 10 and under, Green and Yellow classes are for players ages 11-17.

In an effort to accommodate both ages and skills of players, court sizes for classes are adjusted. The 3-5 year-olds will use a 21-foot short court, which will be gradually increased to a 36-foot short court for 6-8 year-olds, a 60-foot short court for 9-10 year-olds, and ultimately to a full size 78-foot court for 11-17 year-olds.

Classes are offered daily, and schedules are flexible to meet everyone’s needs and level of commitment. If your child wants to play on his or her school team, compete in local, regional or national tournaments, or just enjoys the exercise, there is a program to meet your child’s level of play.

Registration is open for Spring Session II (April 1 – June 9). If you do not know which class to register for please take our placement quiz below!
