Tennis can seem intimidating at times – NetGen breaks everything down into 4 easy levels or 'colors'. Each color represents the type of tennis ball used and level of coaching. On the court, your child's coach will group together similar skill levels within each color.

Scottsdale Ranch Park Junior Program:

The program follows an adaptable curriculum through USTA's Net Generation Program (www.NetGeneration.com). Instruction will focus on fundamentals, empowerment, unity, and fair play and teaches the Whole child (person, athlete and tennis player). Player levels will be determined by the tennis instructor during the early weeks of the session. Players new to the program shall be registered by age, a "Stars" activity on the Play Path. Movement along the pathway and to thePerformance Path will be approved by the junior instruction staff during and after evaluation in the program.

Junior Tennis Development Pathway

Red Ball - ages 5-8

Played on a smaller court (36'x18'), Red is the best place to start for kids just starting off. The softest ball in the program, red will bounce lower and travel slower than usual. This, plus the smaller court allow for a fun and welcoming environment where coaches will break down skills into fun activities for kids to learn the fundamentals of tennis.

Orange Ball - ages 9-10

Played on a slightly larger court (60'x21'), Orange is well suited to kids starting to turn their fundamentals into skills. Orange will bounce higher and travel faster than red. With the larger court kids can begin to put everything together and translate fundamentals into skills.
