Our Youth Summer Tennis Camps are for juniors ages 6-16 of all skill levels. When players arrive for their first day of camp, our USPTA certified pros will evaluate the players and place them in appropriate groups based on their age and level of experience. These groups will be referred to as a ball color; Red, Orange, Green, or Yellow ball (ROGY). To learn more about the ROGY Ball curriculum, and to register, continue to the section below.
What is ROGY Ball? ROGY is an acronym for the progression of tennis balls that junior players use as they grow older, beginning with low-compression balls and later to the yellow balls that most are familiar with. In 2012, the USTA mandated the use of red balls for kids 8 and under and orange balls for kids 10 and under. Currently, green balls are used for kids 13 and under that are novice or intermediate level. Once a player has progressed through the low-compression ball line-up and are ready for advanced competition on a full-size court, they graduate to using traditional yellow balls.
