Junior Development Program
Through Birchwood’s Junior Development Program, we offer a wide range of group camps and clinics throughout the year to develop our younger members’ tennis game. Camps and clinics are designed for players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to more advanced tournament players. Weekly clinics work to enhance your child’s tennis development. In order to place juniors with others around their age and level, clinic participants are grouped as follows:

junior development leagueJunior Leagues
Birchwood's Junior Leagues have been a great success in the past, and we look forward to their continued growth! Players learn competitive skills which cannot be learned outiside of real match play. The leagues are instructive and also fun! Skills learned by students in private lessons are put to use and reinforced during actual matches against their peers. The leagues run concurrently with our junior clinics. Please call the club to see which league is right for you. (570.586.4030)
