The A.T.A. tennis lessons are offered in 8 week sessions.  One hour per week, for 8 weeks, in a row.
(8) week sessions offered at many locations, including Horizon High School at 56 Street & Greenway Roads.

Students should dress comfortably for an athletic event. Tennis shoes required, and each student will need their own tennis racquet.   Hat or visor optional, BRING  a bottle of water, or favorite sports beverage.

Classes are taught in a group format, with an 8:1 student to teacher ratio, many Instructors have an Assistant to help them on the court.   Parents are welcome to watch, and pick up balls, too.   Classes provided by age groups, 6 to 8 year olds, Ages 9 & up Beginners, and Advanced Beginners.  Students can be graduated UP a level when specific tennis skills are accomplished.  We offer a tennis skill assessment in Week #7, for those students in the Ages 9 & Up level to see if the student is ready to graduate Up to the Advanced Beginner level class.

A different tennis stroke is introduced each week, the Forehand, the Backhand, the Volley, the Serve, and the Overhead, and tennis scoring. Tennis games reinforce learning, building knowledge weekly, with a lot of review, and repetition. 

A.T.A. Tennis Lesson programs run September - May.  (4) eight week sessions, Fall I, Fall 2, Winter & Spring.

If your students misses a tennis class, due to illness, or travel, consider attending a "make up" class at the END of the current lesson session, in WEEK #8.  Send an e-mail to the A.T.A. office to request a make up date, this will allow the Instructor to know your student will be attending.

Repetition is the key to success on the tennis court, the Advanced Beginner class is offered 4 times a week at the JW Marriott, on Monday & Weds at 4:00 pm, and on Thursday evenings at 6:30, and Saturday at 12:00.   Consider more than 1 day a week, and, if your student is considering HIGH SCHOOL level tennis, ASK Coach Rick, or Dave, about A.T.A. ACADEMY / Junior Varsity, offered Tue/Thursday, 5:00-6:30 pm, for those students seeking to improve for tournament play, or high school level tennis competition.  Monthly fee, $300.
