MRFC is pleased to introduce our new Net Generation Jr Tennis Program this Fall! Net Generation is the official youth tennis of the USTA, celebrating a game where no one ever sits on the sidelines. A game that’s easy to learn and tailored for kids of all ages and abilities. A game where kids have fun, make friends, fall in love with a sport for life, and build their own game on and off the court. The No. 1 goal of Net Generation is to get more young players into tennis and to get them playing more often. Net Generation gives tennis providers access to the expertise of the USTA and leading experts from around the world. Together, we are developing new play formats, world-class coaching curriculum, plus digital tools that will help break new ground on and off the court! Note that Net Generation Classes are based on learning and mastering strokes and shots prior to moving onto the next class..Net Generation will provide a parent portal and App so that pros can keep both parents and children informed as to their child’s progress, assign “homework” and set goals!
