YELLOW DOG TENNIS UPDATE!
Hello Yellow Dog Tennis Pack Members!
I hope that this update finds you and your family well.
It has been a very hot July/August and Crewser and I are very much looking forward to cooler temps AND indoor tennis!
I recognize it is only in the middle of August, but, as you know the fall season will arrive quickly which means that the start of the Yellow Dog Indoor Tennis Program isn't far off! At this point we are planning to start on October 12th. Should we need to delay our schedule due to new mandates, we will adjust the start date accordingly.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Yellow Dog Tennis "Welcome!".
We offer a very special brand of tennis instruction and it begins with our terrific and completely engaged staff. Our knowledge, energy, and enthusiasm for teaching tennis is unmatched in the metro area. We specialize in teaching the entire game (not just forehands and backhands) and we do it utilizing very unique drills and incredibly fun games. In a nutshell, whether your junior player is just starting out in tennis or is already on his/her high school team they will see tremendous improvement with us and will have a great time in the process!
If you have any concerns or questions, please email me at CoachPaulBress@gmail.com.

Indoor Junior Tennis Clinics
October 12, 2020 - March 26, 2021
Holidays: Nov 26,2020 & Dec 20-Jan 3, 2021
Make Up Week: March 29 - April 2, 2021
We offer 6 levels of classes; maximum on court ratio is 6:1.
Please ensure that our COVID Policies are understood prior to arrival.
BEGINNER TO ADVANCED CLASSES:
Tuesdays: 4:30-6:00pm $1012
These classes will focus on building a solid foundation with footwork, correct grips and excellent technical stroke production. Students will be challenged with a combination of dynamic feeding and live ball drills, utilizing appropriate fun games to reinforce clinic lessons. Our goal is to ensure that each student has mastered the skill to execute each type of shot with excellent form. The importance of learning good fundamentals cannot be overstated. Good technique allows each student to continually improve, while poor technique limits their ability to achieve the higher levels of play.
TOURNAMENT DRILL CLASSES:
Tournament Drill 1
Mondays: 4:00-6:00pm $1364
Players can rally and serve fairly well but need technical improvements on their stroke mechanics. The clinic will include match play patterns for singles and doubles. Players are grouped by age and ability.
Tournament Drill 2
Thursdays: 4:00-6:00pm $1302
This is a continuation of Tournament Drill 1, but players have more hitting and playing experience. The focus will be to improve consistency, and stroke mechanics. Match play patterns and tactics for singles and doubles will be taught. Players are grouped by age and ability.
NOTE: To assist with placement in the appropriate clinic, the student's playing experience background should be provided. If there is a question, we recommend a 10-15 minute hitting assessment to determine the best fit.
Tournament Drill 3
Wednesdays: 4:00-6:00pm $1364
This clinic is for the high school player or aspiring high school player with strong playing skills. Players will continue to develop their consistency on all shots through live ball drilling. Each class will begin with a focus on a specific tactic or strategy through targeted drills. The remainder of the clinic will utilize live ball games that simulate match play.
At Yellow Dog Tennis, we focus on the entire game. Often we see players who train at local academies during the outdoor season and return to us with only a forehand to show for it. Having a big forehand is great, but if you lack a serve or volley, or cannot execute any of the other shots reliably, you're not playing tennis. Having a well rounded game is not only important during competition, but it makes the game of tennis a lot more fun!
