Register Your Child Now For a Tennis Summer Program at Five Seasons
Whether your child is looking for a fun introductory program to learn tennis, a challenging experience to raise his or her competitive game a notch—or somewhere in between—Five Seasons Family Sports Club in Northbrook has you covered.
Five Seasons, 1300 Techny Road, is operating a broad gamut of junior tennis programs for every age and skill level from 3 to 17 years old. The session runs from Sunday, June 10 to Saturday, Aug. 18.
The 10-week programs include Pre-Academy and QuickStart, which offers group instruction led by certified tennis professionals. Practice is focused on building hand-eye coordination, learning basic strokes, racquet skills, and match play. One goal is to prepare juniors for rallying and point play.
Players are divided by age and skill level. Those ages 3 to 5 are Quick Start Red, ages 5 to 7 are Orange and 8 to 10 Green. For this younger population, classes are offered Monday through Thursday from 4 to 5 p.m., Thursdays noon to 1 p.m. and Saturdays 9 to 10 a.m. for Quick Start Red only, and Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m. for Quick Start Orange only.
There are three additional groups based on age and skill: Level IV (11 to 13), Level V (11 to 13) and High School (ages 13 to 17 beginners). Classes are 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday for Levels IV and V, and 11 a.m. to Noon on Saturday for the High School group.
Meanwhile, for juniors competing in local, Midwest and national USTA tournaments and on high school teams, there is the Academy Camp. This camp is from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
This more advanced session, for which juniors can register by the week or the day, offers hours of instructed drills and competitive play while addressing technique, footwork, strategy, point play, mental toughness and fitness.
