At the Junior level, coaches (trained professionals) or captains (trained
volunteers such as a parent) may lead a team. JTT will have teams that
are led by coaches and/or captains. Team Moms/Parents will also be a big
part of leading our teams. Our participating public parks and private clubs
offer clinics instructed by professional clinics to teams who do not want to
be coached by a parent. New teams, especially beginners are encouraged
to take advantage of our tennis professionals who provide excellent
instruction. This will help your child to understand the game better and
enjoy success while learning to play the game.
How do I know what level of play is appropriate for my child?
Use the NTRP rating guidlelines found on the USTA website, Junior Team

However, skill levels will be confirmed at our Evaluation Days.
I want my child to participate but not sure I can afford it?
Please contact the league coordinator and describe your situation. JTT
desires to make tennis available to everyone, regardless of income level or
background. Efforts will be made to make tennis registration fees and
equipment accessible to you through our assistance program.
