Youth Programs

We’re THE place for young tennis players wanting to develop their game! All ages and abilities will thrive from concepts to contact to camaraderie in our Junior Development Program on the courts. Under the exceptional guidance of Director of Tennis, Kendall Chitambar, and Director of Player Development, Coach Nico Todero, our youth programs establish strong performance skills for ages 10 – 18. In addition, Chitambar and Todero have a long and proven track record of successfully developing champions through high school, college, and far beyond!

Scaled for Success

As part of our youth programs, complete with specially-sized racquets and mini courts for the youngest tennis players, kids will soon be rallying, playing, and growing a passion for the game. The benefits are exciting and immediate for the young player, providing the joy and skills essential to play real tennis games at a young age.

TEN and Under Tennis

We are proud to be participants in the prestigious USTA 10 and Under tennis program, a national effort to introduce kids ages 4 – 10 to the awesome game of tennis. RMTC Boulder partners with the University of Colorado for the use of their 10 and Under 36-ft and 60-ft tennis courts. This program affords excellent instruction for young players wanting to become part of our highly successful High Performance Tennis Program.

HIGH PERFORMANCE TENNIS PROGRAM

In our regionally known High Performance Tennis Program (HPTP), created in 2008 by the founders, Kendall Chitambar, Donna Chitambar, and Duke Paluch, we have a stellar track record of developing players to the top rankings at the state, intermountain, and national levels. We have cultivated Colorado Top 10 players in both boys’ and girls’ categories from ages 10 – 18, and many of our players have gone on to play college tennis. Overseen by one of the top coaches in the world, Nico Todero, the program’s coaches include international tennis coaches, strength & conditioning coaches, and specialty coaches. The High Performance Tennis Program is proud to be supported by the 5430 Kids’ Tennis Foundation, which offers needs-based scholarship opportunities to young, gifted talent.
