After School Programs

Acadiana Serves offers a pathway for junior tennis players starting at any age to develop their interest in the sport to reach their full potential.

Whether the child is introduced as a 4-5 year old in our Red Ball program or decides to pick up the game at a later stage, there are specific age/skill appropriate programs for any child.

If your child wants to play on his or her school team, compete in local, regional, or national tournaments, or just enjoy the exercise, there is a program to meet every child's level of play.

Classes are offered daily, and schedules are flexible to meet everyone’s needs and level of commitment.

 

RED BALL players "learn play to learn" rather than "learn to play". We want to instill a love for the sport while teaching athletic skills and proper fundamentals using smaller courts, racquets and slower balls for a greater chance of being successful.

Red Ball details

   Age:  8 and Under
  Ball Type: Red Ball
  Court size: 36’ court

 

  Objectives:

  • correct foundation to advance through the developmental pathway
  • focus on improving hand eye coordination, upper and lower body coordination by linking the arms, hands, and feet through a series of movements, games, and exercises, overall athletic ability, establishing the correct grips, swing patterns, and basic scoring
  • learning to work together with other players so they can begin to rally and control the ball 

We recommend 30min private or semi-private lessons a week in additional to group clinics to speed up the developmental process.
