Our junior development programs are taught using the "Hitting Hot" tennis system founded by tennis champion Ivan Lendl. This system is a comprehensive approach to learning to play tennis well. It teaches a complete understanding of how to hit all the shots, play from all positions and in all game situations, both offensively and defensively. Learning, enjoyment, and sportsmanship are the cornerstones of Hitting Hot.

Grand Slam's Hitting Hot "FiRE" Junior Pathway programs are for age 11+ and consist of Development, Competitive and Excellence programs. The curriculum takes students to a higher level of competition with emphasis on technique, personal playing styles, strategic and tactical decision making, and mental skills training. Athletes will aspire to high school varsity level tennis and beyond.
