Tennis Canada's latest initiative in junior development is "Progressive Tennis". Progressive tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level.
Our instructional programs are divided into 5 groups. Whether your child wants to be the next Federer or Serena, or just wants to get out and learn tennis basics and have fun, Rosedale has a program to suit their need.
Red Ball - ½ court (ages 3-5)
An introductory program for kids ages 3-5, where the goal is to get kids excited about being on a tennis court. They will learn how to hold a racket, develop hand/eye and foot coordination as well as learn basic fundamentals.
Orange Ball - ¾ court (ages 6-11)
An instructional program for beginner to intermediate players using modified balls and courts. Focus is on improving fundamentals in a friendly environment.
Green Dot Balls - modified full court (ages 6-11)
This clinic is for the player who already has some basic rallying skills, and has taken lesson before. The focus will be on continuing to improve fundamentals as well as understanding tennis etiquette, rules and basic match play.
Regular Ball - full court (ages 12-18)
