10 and Under
10 and Under Tennis is an exciting new approach to introduce kids to the game. Balls are lower in compression, meaning they bounce lower and slower so they are easier to hit. This allows kids more time to get to the ball and helps them develop proper swing patterns. The racquets are smaller, lighter and sized for smaller hands. The courts are smaller and easier to cover. This all adds up to more success and more fun!
We offer five levels of 10 & Under Tennis: Red Ball 1, Red Ball 2, Orange Ball 1, Orange Ball 2 and Green Dot Ball.
Red Ball Classes Suspended
At this time, we are only offering Orange Ball 1 & 2 and Green Dot Ball classes for our 10 and Under program. Please contact BETC Head Pro Allan Overland about lessons for children at Red Ball levels. Allan@betconline.net (253) 872-5545 Ext 31
Beginner (Level 1 and 2)
Our beginner classes are designed for kids over the age of 10 that are just starting out in tennis. Beginner Level 1 introduces players to the fundamentals of tennis through drills and play-based activities. Players will learn how to hold the racquet, beginning stroke development and court positioning. Beginner Level 2 players have limited on-court experience and are still developing basic strokes. Players will work on improving consistency while starting to develop their serve and net play.
Intermediate (Level 3)
Our Intermediate level 3 classes further the growth of players by introducing more advanced play. Students will continue to work on consistency while also developing tactical and strategic approaches to match play.
Advanced level 4 classes are for students that have developed an overall game. These classes are faster paced and are geared toward preparing students for competitive play at Tournaments and the High School level. Players will work on developing additional pace on groundstrokes and serves, competitive strategies for singles and doubles and conditioning.
Our Junior High Performance program is modeled after the national standards set by the USTA. Participants are required to be dedicated to year-round competitive tennis, including participating in tournaments n a regular basis. Students are typically ranked in their age division in the Pacific Northwest and/or participating in High School tennis at the very highest levels. To see if you are eligible to participate, please contact our High Performance coach, JJ Jackson.
Special Olympics Training
This class is for students with intellectual or developmental disabilities that are currently at or working toward competitive play. Students should be match capable with movement skills and an ability to rally. An Adaptive Recreation Level 3 rating and instructor approval required.
