When registering, you will be prompted to enter in your child's experience. This helps us better prepare our lesson plans. Our clinics and camps provide the best training whe players are in the appropriate skill level. When possible players will be divided by skill level, not age. Players will be able to move to a more advanced court as soon as they are ready.
