At Tennis Junior we focus on creating a love for tennis and sports through fun, interactive drills and games. Children will learn tennis fundamentals such as dynamic balance, hand-eye coordination, footwork, basic strokes and grips. These skills will promote tennis ability and are designed to help with other youth sports. Rackets are provided, along with age appropriate balls and equipment approved by the USTA for 10 & Under Tennis. This class will build confidence, encourage teamwork and effort while learning tennis essentials in a positive environment.
Julie's mission is to make tennis more fun for children by teaching fun, interactive tennis classes and giving each child the individual attention they deserve. At Tennis Junior the number one priority is to bring out the best of each child's ability by providing a comfortable and fun playing environment.
Julie has been playing tennis since the age of 12 in Ohio, NYC and Maryland. She is inspired by the teaching philosophy of former tennis professional and PTR Master Professional, Roy Barth, who believes that the focus should be on key foundation points.
Julie is a Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) Certified Associate Instructor for ages 10& Under and an approved United States Tennis Association Net Generation Provider. Julie's coaching method goes beyond tennis as she believes that learning basic fundamentals can help children to achieve success in any sport.
