Junior Early Development Program
Early Development Program is offered for Pee-wee, Basic beginner and Advanced beginner tennis players for six consecutive weeks on Saturdays. We have weekday classes available in the Summer. These classes are essential for the development of a tennis player and the program is designed to teach the fundamentals of the game, technique, and realistic tactics to young tennis players. At Summit Chase Country Club, we primarily use low compression balls, smaller courts, and shorter rackets, transitioning to yellow balls, full size court and bigger rackets as the player progresses. Our mission statement at SCCC is to inspire kids to play tennis for life.
