The Tennis is Elementary program provides young players the chance to learn basic fundamentals, teamwork, and sportsmanship from qualified tennis instructors. Using smaller racquets, nets, and court sizes, QuickStart tennis gives kids the opportunity to learn and start to play right away. This popular nationwide program teaches life skills, tennis and teamwork in a fun environment that allows your students to stay active while learning the fastest growing lifetime sport in the country.

Participants in the afterschool camp get (4) focused 1-hour lessons that meet once a week after school in the gym or multipurpose room. The cost is $25/participant, plus an online registration fee. There are a number of scholarships available per camp.

All equipment needed to run the camp is provided, and the coach to player ratio is usually about 8:1. The number of participants depends on the size of the gym. On average, our camps number 25 players.

Each session focuses on a specific shot taught in the QuickStart method. The sessions are broken down into an intro activity, fitness component, lesson focus, and games. The camp uses stations to ensure that kids are moving the whole time and are not standing in line.

All Instructors and Site Directors have attended a QuickStart Tennis training session and have submitted to a background check prior to starting work.
