For Winter Indoor Junior Clinic Schedules, GO to the Indoor Page.
Our Philosophy is to instill a lifelong love for the game of tennis in your child. We emphasize the FUNdamentals of the sport in an enjoyable and safe environment. All Junior Classes and SPOT half day Clay Camps are held at Todd Morsilli Clay Court Tennis Center in Roger Williams Park. If your Junior player would like Private instruction, see Private Lesson Page
SPOT hosts four different sessions for all of our Junior Clinics on the Clay Courts: Spring (6 weeks on Saturdays), Summer (10 weeks on Saturdays), Summer (8 weeks on Tuesdays & Thursdays), and Fall (8 weeks on Saturdays). We try to group some time slots together to offer more convenience to our families.
After rave reviews in 2016, SPOT is bringing back our SUPERSIZED Junior Pass. This pass will give your junior player access to drop in to any appropriate clinic in the SPRING, SUMMER and FALL Sessions and to come and use the courts for practice and match play throughout the season. This is an incredible value for those juniors who plan to enroll in Spring, Summer and Fall JPDs or Beast; or those who plan to enroll in weekday AND weekend enrollments during the summer season. $450
