Our Junior Development programs offer group instruction for players age 18 and under. HTRC developments offer a cost effective opportunity for players to learn tennis or improve their skills while supervised by an instructor. Development levels meet on a consistent day and time over the course of a development session and maintain a four player to one instructor ratio. Players will learn appropriate skills and strategies that are determined by the lead instructor of the clinic. Click here to register for lessons, camps, and programs. If you're not familiar with our online registration portal, you can learn more about how to register here. A $20 late fee will be applied to all registrations after the deadline.
