At this level players often commit to a 35 week indoor tennis season and 8 weeks during the summer tennis season. Each class is 2 hours long. Participants should demonstrate a desire to improve their tennis game. Participants are assigned to a level based on the evaluation of the academy teaching professionals. These evaluations are made based on objective skill criteria and subjective attitude assessment.  This level is designed for players who have interest in earning a position on a junior varsity or varsity high school team. They may have begun playing USTA matches but have not earned a Chicago USTA ranking. Primary goals of these players are to play three to four times/week and to continue challenge matches and round robin play. Players will advance to Academy Training.

Mon 5:30-7:30PM - Wed 5:30-7:30PM

These players have shown continued interest in round robins, challenge matches and have begun to play USTA tournaments. Commitment, quality of practice and quantity of time on the tennis court are strongly recommended for the high performance players. In addition, the player must be working toward obtaining a Chicago USTA ranking (5 tournament minimum/year). Private lessons are also strongly recommended.  Players in this division play challenge matches, mini-tournaments, round robins, have earned a Chicago ranking and may have extensive USTA tournament experience. They are seeking improved spots on their High School team or often playing the highest positions. They are looking to improve their sectional/national ranking and are interested in pursuing college level play.
