Tennis at Harlem Junior Tennis and Education Harlem Junior Tennis and Education 1 Photo

Our programming is broken into three distinct levels Grassroots & Futures, Tournament Leveland The Tournament Team. 

Programs:

  • Grassroots I (ages: 7-10 yrs old) — It is our beginners' class. These students use the larger, softer and slower tennis balls referred as the Red Ball - enabling them to see them clearly and diminishing fears of treacherous faster, higher bouncing balls. The emphasis here is on understanding the game and acquiring basic skills. We focus on preventing frustration by keeping it as simple and enjoyable as possible. Grassroots I meets twice weekly for a total of 3 hours total;
  • Grassroots II (ages: 7-10 yrs old) — It is our advanced beginners' group. This group begins to transition from the larger, softer and slower Red Ball tennis balls to the Orange Ball and begins to focus on developing the hand-to-eye coordination skills needed for the next stage. They also start to play recreational games, competing with each other. Grassroots II meets twice a week for 3 hours total;
  • Futures (ages: 7-10 yrs old) — Formally known as "Munchkins". Group accepts 12 to 15 students who have the skill sets to play on a more regular basis. Focusing on specific areas of their game, these players transition from purely recreational to competitive recreational play taking part in tournaments with kids from other areas. Futures meet 3 times weekly for a total of 4 hours;
  • Tournament Level (ages: 11-14 yrs old) — Tournament Development Stage (TDS) I group, usually 20-24 students, isn't age limited, but typically works with kids ages 11-14 who are still playing recreational tennis but trying to get into competitive play. The workload is more intense and expectations are higher. Physically, they are stronger than Munchkins but need more knowledge and skills for infrequent tournament play. TDS I meets Wednesday, Friday and Saturday;
  • Tournament Development Stage (TDS) II (ages: 15-17 yrs old)  — This group is similar to TDS, except players are older and their play is more competitive. TDS II groups usually number 20-24 players. Focusing on high school tennis, they play against students from different schools. Schedules are set by the public school system and our players learn to manage their time effectively. Classes meet Wednesday, Friday and Sunday;
  • Tournament Academy Stage (TAS) I (ages: 11 - 13 yrs old) — Admits a dozen students to play competitive tennis only. They have developed beyond recreational play and are trying to achieve a USTA ranking to allow them to further their game, with an end goal of winning college tennis scholarship. In addition to training, TAS I players play a maximum of 2 tournaments per month;
  • Tournament Academy Stage (TAS) II (ages: 14 - 18 yrs old) — This group shares the same goals as TAS I but compete on an even higher level. Their goal is to win a scholarship at a NCAA Division I university. Division I schools include Ivy League Colleges, leading West Coat schools, traditionally Black colleges like Howard and Hampton University and nearby Fairleigh Dickinson and Fairfield University. TAS II students play a maximum of tournaments per month to earn a ranking and have program play 5 days a week;
  • Tournament Team — The Tournament Team represents our top-level players aiming for higher academic and tennis achievement. This select group of high potential players, across all ages, demonstrate an ability and desire to pursue higher academic and tennis achievement. Members of the team receive financial assistance for private coaching, HTJEP programming, tournament costs and more. Players train 4 days a week and compete in 24 tournaments per year;
  • Outdoor Season (Summer Programs) — HJTEP offers Summer programming for beginning players and high performance tournament level players. The Beginners Day Camp is offered at Howard Bennett Park and the Tournament Training Camp location is TBD.

Classes are held after schools and on weekends in spring, summer and fall sessions: spring (8-weeks), summer & fall (6-weeks);

  • Tennis Ladders — RCTA runs three very successful singles ladders: an Open Ladder, on which both men and women may participate; a Women's Ladder; and a ladder for men ages 45 and over. All players must be RCTA members. This is a ranking system and players try to move up the ladder by challenging higher-ranked players to a match. If the challenger wins the match, he or she moves up to that spot and everyone in between slides back one spot. If the challenger loses the match, everyone stays where they were. Players may challenge anyone up to 20 places higher (exception: those ranked 95 or lower may challenge anyone ranked 76 or lower). New players may make their first challenge as high as they like. Win and they move to that position. Lose and they must start at the bottom and work their way up;
