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.

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.
