Welcome to Tennis Yellow-ball Futures, which is generally for the 12U-14U age group. USTA’s NetGeneration promotes the American Development Model (ADM) as the way to train.
Claire Carter is our tennis pro to help guide you through this level and advance at your pace. Claire brings over 30 years of high-level playing and coaching experience including playing junior Wimbledon twice, playing on the WTA Tour from 1999 to 2001, and being a four-time All American at the University of Washington, where she was a full scholarship athlete.
Yellow-ball Futures athletes should be training two to sixteen hours per week depending upon your goals. Active players train two to six hours per week, whereas Excel players are in the ten to sixteen range. Training includes both on and off-court programs.
