Youth Programs

Our programs are designed to be a fun, challenging, and enjoyable way to develop and push our junior athletes to reach their maximum potential.

Our mission is to grow tennis players, starting at the youngest ages, all the way through high school. We slowly progress kids through our programs to help them stay on track for an active and healthy life. Programs ramp up from hand-eye coordination work to advanced drills and learning about point play. When players are prepared, our Academy program takes them to the next level.

LNRC also hosts special events for youth. Events are open for members and non-members. Please see our active events below or check our Facebook page for the latest updates.

We do no longer loan racquets for youth programs. We do sell great kids racquets in our Pro Shop.

Kids progress through our programs with the help of great coaches to strengthen their fundamentals. Our mission is to grow tennis players for a lifelong love of tennis.
