Level: Low Advanced, Ball Type: High Compression, Court Size: 78?, Tournament Level: USTA Intermediate & USTA Sectionals
Gold 2 is the second step into our Competitive Junior Pathway program and is reserved for juniors that have already played USTA Entry Level tournaments and are currently playing USTA Intermediate tournaments and/or play on their Varsity Tennis Team. All players need to be level equivalent to a low advanced level of play, committed to playing USTA Sanctioned tournaments, aspire to play USTA Advanced tournaments and when eligible, play on their Varsity High School Tennis Team. This class will continue working on proper stretching, dynamic warm-ups, on & off court conditioning, advanced ball shape/spin variety, weapon development, assertive point play strategies, advanced footwork and movement, continue mental toughness training and strategies for both singles and doubles tournament play. Players at this level should be able to hit a forehand/backhand slice, utilize volley placement, slice & kick serve, approach shots, drop shots and overhead placement. Gold 2 includes Match Play on Fridays from 5:15-7:15pm and will work specifically on strategic assignments from the pros, video analysis of point play and technique, proper shot selection and mastering the mental side of tennis.
NOTE: Match play attendance is mandatory, as match play is 70% of player development at this level. This class runs in monthly sessions and generally meets 3 times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for Match Play.
Player graduation is approximately 12 months and Pro approval is REQUIRED to move to the next level of development. Player pathway development criteria is posted online at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/article/683002 or posted in the PTC lobby.
