2017 Summer Tennis Programs
QuickStart Tennis (ages 3-12) uses smaller courts, jr. rackets, lower and slower bouncing balls, shorter nets, and simplified scoring to quickly get kids playing tennis! And just like other popular youth sports, QuickStart Tennis stresses the importance of play and team competition. We have a practice and play program for kids entering K-7 grade (2 days/week). We also have a program for preschoolers (1 day/week) so they can also be out on the court working on hand-eye coordination, balance, agility, and footwork.
Due to USTA league restructuring, we have reorganized our programs for older kids. We will only have 18U traveling teams this year, but we will have a robust in-house program to give opportunities to even more tennis players. Our summer tennisprograms consist of practice and match play with an emphasis on skill development, fun, teamwork and friendly competition.
18U In-House Practice and Play program (Mon afternoons/Wed mornings for ages 15-18): Co-ed program which includes a practice component and competition component. This program is for those who have played varsity or JV or will be trying out for one of those programs next fall.
14U In-House Practice and Play program (Sun evenings/Wed mornings for ages 11-14): Co-ed program which includes a practice component and competition component. This program is for those who have played or will be playing middle schooltennis next fall.
Girls Doubles League (Tues nights): Come to a fun night of doubles! This program is for varsity/JV girls who have some doubles experience and want more match experience. Girls from other schools will be invited to this league. This program isdiscounted for those who are already registered for another SSP summer tennis program. Please emails[email protected] for coupon code.
18U Junior Team Tennis* (Mon/Thurs afternoons): Co-ed traveling teams who play in an 18U Intermediate USTA league. Try-out required (date TBD). This program is for those who have varsity experience or played at the top of their JV team. USTA Membership required for 18U JTT. Those who do not make one of our 18U traveling teams will be placed in our 18U In-House program.
10U Junior Team Tennis* (ages 9-10; dates TBD): Co-ed program that is an ADD-ON to our QuickStart program. This program is for 9-10 year olds who are signed up for our QuickStart program and already have some tennis experience. This program will allow kids to compete in a few PlayDays against other communities. There is no fee to initially sign up for this program. Once we put together a team and have more details, we will collect the nominal fee.
*Local players attending South St Paul schools will get first priority for traveling team placement.
Don't forget, registration prices listed on website are NOT the discounted prices. Most programs have a $15 early bird discount and $10 SSP Student discount that will be taken off your fees.
Unfortunately, we still cannot take credit card payments. Please register on-line and then send in your check. Sorry for the inconvenience.
