Advanced Training Program
NYJTL's Advanced Training Program provides talented players ages 6-18 with year-round on and off court elite training by USPTA and PTR certified coaches. The program focuses on helping team members develop necessary skills and improve technique, footwork, balance, and coordination and point construction. Professional staff work to improve the children's tennis skills and build character through the sport.

These values help kids improve their grades in school, maximize their academic opportunities and attain success in life.
