Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, February 27, 2022.

PTC is working to make our tennis camps & programs accessible to all! Payment is discountable up to 3 increments according to what is affordable to each families budget. Please see discount option at payment.


Silver 11-14 (Sunday) Level: Low Intermediate-Intermediate, Ball Type: Foam, Green Dot, High Compression, Court Size: 78’, Tournament Level: USTA Sanctioned Entry Level or Non-Sanction Competition
Silver 11-14 is the next level after Bronze 11-14 in our Junior Development Pathway. This class is a ton of fun, with a lot of athletic movement, and high energy instruction from our USPTA/USPTR Certified Tennis Professionals.?
This class runs in monthly sessions and meets 1 time a week on Sundays. Players from this class can attend Friday match play sessions from 4-5:15pm for a drop-in fee of $10.
Silver 11-14 is specifically designed for middle school age players to focus on more advanced movement, agility, racquet preparations, rallies, placement, recreational competition and point play for singles and doubles.
Players will continue to work on fundamentals, but should already know how to score, and be comfortable with the basic serve, groundstrokes, volleys and overhead fundamentals, as players will be introduced to stroke preparations on the run, the slice serve, return of serve and additional ball control using shape, spin and placement on their groundstrokes.
As players develop, coaches will separate players abilities to create level compatibility throughout the session, so that our 2 tiers of development criteria are fully utilized to optimize player development. Player graduation is approximately 12-24 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.?
