Advanced Junior Development Tennis Programs

competitivechampsHigh Point offers progressively challenging classes for youth with a desire to compete in tournaments and/or join their school's tennis team. 

Free evaluations are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 pm. No appointment is necessary. Players who have trained at other facilities, may participate in a free evaluation by one of our junior development tennis pros to determine appropriate advanced class placement. Evaluations are on a first-come basis and take approximately 5-10 minutes. Come into the pro shop and let the staff know that you would like your son/daughter to be evaluated. You will be asked to complete a brief player experience form. Players are evaluated on their understanding and performance of strokes such as forehand, backhand, serve, and volley.

All of the programs below require High Point instructor approval before registering. Upon receiving a recommendation, families may enroll their child either in person at High Point Tennis Center or over the phone (972) 941-7170. On-line registration is not available.
