What is H.I.T.S. – Red Ball Junior Team Tennis?

A follow-up program to UST A NorCal’s H.I.T.S. 10 and under tennis program, H.I.T.S. – Red Ball Jr. Team Tennis is a new  program for kids 10 and under that will not only have a continued focus on life lessons and actual tennis play, but also an emphasis on exhibiting great teamwork on and off the court.

H.I.T.S. – Red Ball JTT provides a great transition for kids to move from the introductory aspect of H.I.T.S. into the team concept without a heavy emphasis on competitive play which appears later on in orange, green and yellow ball tennis. The core lessons remain a part of this program to continue to help develop the child as well at the athlete.

Just like the introductory H.I.T.S. program, H.I.T.S. – Red Ball Junior Team Tennis can be run anywhere kids can play tennis, including through programs at clubs, Parks and Recreation facilities, community centers, afterschool programs, etc. Kids will be put on teams within the program so they can experience the team tennis experience at a level they are comfortable playing as they continue to grow their skills.

All participants receive a H.I.T.S. t-shirt, wristband, ball, certificate, players/parents manual and more!!!
