Alexa Gagnon Footwork and groundstrokes are VERY GOOD for 6 years old. She is athletic and is a good learner at a very young age. I believe Alexa could be the best young tennis player in Texas in the coming years. Hard worker, competitive, intelligent and a joy to be around.
Our intermediate tennis program for kids 10-15 years of age is on Tues & Fri from 6-7pm. This is a fun class where kids practice their technique, compete and have fun! It's important to practice doing the swings correctly but it takes time for kids to learn how to play correctly so everybody has to be patient. We do shadow swinging to help reinforce all the strokes using the correct swings and grips then we move to live ball play where they practice while rallying back and forth. Below is a video where we are instructing our kids in correct technique while having fun! These players are preparing for competition in tournament play and junior high tennis.
