Boise State Junior Develoment Program

Boise State Summer Junior Development Program


The Boise State Junior Development program will focus on helping players improve their technique, tactics, athleticism and competitive abilities.  We believe junior tennis players develop best around other committed juniors who have the chance to learn, practice and compete in a fun and challenging atmosphere. 



On Tuesdays (Advanced) and Wednesdays (Intermediate) we will offer workouts for tournament level players.  Workouts will consist of drilling, games, conditioning and instruction focused on developing general stroke mechanics, footwork and strategy. The first half hour of each workout will focus on footwork, athleticism and conditioning.  The last hour and half will focus more on technique, strategy, games and competition. 


Matchplay (Compass Draws)

On Mondays (14 and under) and Sundays (18 and under) we will offer match play for different age divisions.  Match play is a critical component for all players’ development. It is important for players to compete each week and receive feedback on what they learn in individual lessons and workouts. Match play will consist of 16 players in a compass draw format.  Each player will play four sets and will move in the direction of their ability level based upon their performance in the draw.
