BTA PROGRAM LIST BELOW:

BTA programs are specifically designed to develop high level junior players.  Whether your child is a beginner or nationally ranked junior, we have the program and expertise to begin or continue their development.  Our methods have developed 35+ collegiate players over the past 10 years!  Our programs are divided into specific categories to ensure certain skills and requirements are learned and mastered before moving on to the next level.  BTA Categories are as follows:

Foundational Programs:  Designed to develop a players love, techniques, and most importantly footwork.  At BTA footwork is the most important aspect of a players game.  Understanding how to move to and from a ball, set up for strokes, and court positioning are keys to a proper foundation and growth in the sport.  Our foundational programs are well known in the area for developing players the “right way” all while making the game fun and exciting! Foundational Programs include, Red Ball, Orange Ball, Futures I and Futures II.  For more information on each of these programs, please scroll down the list of programs.

Developmental Programs:  Designed to build on the players solid foundation.  Players in this program will gain a better understanding of shot selection, spins, and different stances needed during point play.  A stronger emphasis is placed on increasing footwork speed and stamina, as well as serving techniques and point play.  Developmental Programs include, Challengers I and II. For more information on each of these programs, please scroll down the list of programs.

Classic Program:  Our Classic level is designed for players that are already in USTA league play or lower level tournaments, but have a UTR below 3.0. This is an excellent program to continue the growth of each players mental and strategic game.  An emphasis is placed on structuring points and developing net skills to finish points.  For more information on each of these programs, please scroll down the list of programs.

Select Programs:  Designed for the very serious player (UTR 3.0-5.5 required)!  These players want to play not only on their HS team, but nationally and collegiately.  The program will push each player mentally and physically, in an environment that promotes competition, effort, positive attitudes, and sportsmanship.  A strong emphasis is placed on serving, and the ability to set up points and finish them.  Players in this program will be expected to register for at least 2 classes per week, and play USTA/UTR tournaments regularly.  All of our select program staff has played and taught at the national and collegiate level.  We have the experience and knowledge to teach and relate to the players as they continue to grow their skills!  BTA Select Programs include, Tourna 250 and Elite 500.  For more information on each of these programs, please scroll down the list of programs.

Invitation Program:  This player regularly plays high level sectional tournaments as well as national events.  Each player in this program is fully dedicated to the sport, plans to play collegiately, and has a determination and passion that only comes from within, it cannot be taught.  These players want to compete and be an environment with others like them.  A strong emphasis is placed on mental toughness, in match strategies, serves and returns, and finishing points.  Our staff has over 50 years of combined experience playing and teaching at the national and collegiate level.  BTA’s methods have developed over 35 collegiate players in the past 10 years!  For more information on each of these programs, please scroll down the list of programs.
