Coach Dave and a 2016 Futures class

Summer Youth Program

Gaylord Youth Tennis 

Registration is now open for the 2017 Summer Youth Tennis Program. The program runs six weeks from June 13th – July27th. Dave Johnson will teach all classes. Dave is a certified instructor through the USPTR. This program was designed to help your child learn the game of tennis quickly in a safe, fun environment. Classes will include work on athletic skills and specific swing path techniques required to be successful at tennis. Students will also learn to score and participate in competitive match play and drills. 

Cost: 55.00: We are very fortunate to have partnered with the Alpine Regional Tennis Association (ARTA) again this year. ARTA is a dedicated group of volunteers that are passionate about the game of tennis and are diligently working to grow the game of tennis in Gaylord and surrounding areas. ARTA has generously offered to sponsor each child that signs up with a 10.00 credit. With ARTA’s sponsorship, classes will be reduced to only 55.00 for the six-session class! Tennis is the ultimate lifetime sport. It develops confidence and focus, cultivates sportsmanship and teamwork and supplies a lifetime of fun!! Tennis is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child. 

Please note: This will be the only six-week session offered this summer. Please sign up early to reserve and guarantee your child a spot, as space is limited. To register or if you have questions call Dave Johnson at 586-242-9165 or email Dave at
