Junior Clinics


Forest Lake 10/18/2014 www.timparkerphoto.com

Forest Lake has built a program that starts from first time players and goes all the way to nationally ranked contenders that can become future collegiate players.

We use the USTA ROGY “Red, Orange, Green and Yellow” ball progression program to develop juniors in a more fun and easier way of playing tennis.  As players get older, taller and stronger, the tennis balls bounce higher and faster. Red –> Orange –> Green –> Yellow, to reach the proper hitting zone so that players develop better stroke technique as they grow.  The court also grows in length with 4 to 6 year olds playing on a 36 foot court, 6 to 10 year olds on a 60 foot court and everyone else using the standard 78 foot court.

After green ball program everyone will go into pre-academy where we will continue to develop stroke fundamentals, footwork, mental toughness and strategy.

The top tier program at Forest Lake Tennis Club is Miller Tennis Academy for aspiring players looking to play Varsity high school tennis, St. Louis District, Missouri Valley, National tournaments and eventually leading to college tennis.

We have developed many of the top players in the St. Louis area over the last 12 years.
