YOUTH PROGRAM

Every child progresses at different rate. It usually takes 2 – 3 years of training for kids to go beyond the Advanced Beginners Level, depending on how often and focused each child trains and how often each child participates in leagues or tournaments.  Children who are serious about making significant improvement should obtain both private coaching and group training.

USATT created a rating system to give a general idea of how each player progresses.   However, the ratings will fluctuate, especially when the player is working on new, more advanced skills.

USATT RATING GUIDELINES:

Novice:  0 – 300    
Beginners:  300 – 600 
Advanced Beginners: 600 – 900
