Greenies

The Green Ball Class is the final stage of the Progressive Tennis Program and is for children ages 8-10. Children play on the full sized tennis court but use modified balls that have 85 – 90% the compression of regular tennis balls. This means that the balls are a little less lively than regular tennis balls. The focus of this program is to solidify the technique and tactics developed in the Red and Orange Ball Programs and prepare the children to transition to full court tennis.

Orangies

Orange Ball Classes are for children ages 7 to 9. The children will play on a court roughly 75% the size of a regular tennis court and use modified racquets and balls. This program will build on the rally skills developed in the Red Ball Program while transitioning the children to a larger court. There will be a larger focus on technical development such as the introduction of spin to all strokes.

Redies

Red ball classes are for children ages 4-7. The children will play on a smaller court (doubles line to doubles line) with shorter racquets and softer balls. This program will focus on teaching the players to cooperate in pairs and small groups which will help set the foundation for developing the rally skills necessary to excel in tennis at a later age. Children will also learn basic technical skills such as groundstrokes, volleys and serves.

Camps

Each camp is 9am-12pm and/or 1pm-4pm. Camps include 3 hours of coaching, camp t-shirt and treats.

4 Day Camps

July 3 - July 6
August 7 - August 10

5 Day Camps

July 9 - July 13  |  July 16 - July 20  |  July 23 - July 27

Drill Sessions & lessons

Fitness is a top priority at Steve Nash Tennis Academy. Our pros understand the movements involved in tennis and designs every workout with the tennis athlete in mind. We incorporate medicine ball, weights, and agility work that is tennis specific and tough. We have one of the most comprehensive footwork, recovery, and first step development programs available. Our program involves situational footwork at the beginning of every workout. We develop explosive recovery, athletic base, drop step, and lateral movement. Our programming is consistent and we believe the player should master footwork and drills before proceeding to the next level.We coach our students to perform drills with the same focus and energy they would employ during tournament matches.
