USTA Junior Team Tennis

Castro Valley USTA Junior Team Tennis League

The USTA Junior Team Tennis League is on fire in Castro Valley! 

Junior Team Tennis in Castro Valley is a non-traveling team experience for girls and boys, age 9-17.   We play on Sundays in Castro Valley during the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer seasons.  USTA Junior Team Tennis is a national youth tennis league played in all 50 states. It’s all about building your game while building a team.

Kids get together to play singles, doubles, and mixed doubles against other teams. It promotes values you would expect from any sport by fostering a spirit of cooperation, unity and individual self-growth. Also, it’s a fun environment for kids where they learn that succeeding is really more about how you play the game – win or lose.

Each season, the league members are placed onto a team.  Every week the player scores points for themselves and for their team.  At the end of the season, the winning team receives a medal, as well as the most improved players. For more detailed information, e-mail Suzi at

The Fall, 2018 USTA Junior Team Tennis League, held on Sundays from 3:00 – 4:30 on the courts at Canyon Middle School in Castro Valley, is open for registration.  Please e-mail Suzi for detailed information at

Here are some tips to help your child enjoy tennis and perform at his or her best:

1. As a parent, you play a critical role in helping your child enjoy their tennis journey. Try to focus on your child, rather than comparing them to other children is important because not all children achieve the same outcomes or need the same support.

2. Not all children need the same involvement from their parents. Some players want a lot of encouragement; others want their parents to be silent. Some don’t even want their parents to watch. Ask them what they want from you.

3. What works for one player might not work for another. I have found that that juniors are uncomfortable with their opponent’s parents on court watching them.

With my middle school team, I try to be sensitive to players on both teams and ask them if they are comfortable with coaches, friends and/or family on court. If one of the players is uncomfortable, then, as home coach, I will not let anyone on court to observe. In the last 14 years of coaching, not one player wanted their parents or someone else’s parents on court.

Parents and Friends Court Conduct and Sportsmanship:

Parents and friends are expected to observe good manners at all this time.

1. Recommend good match habits but don’t do everything for them. They need to fill and bring their own water bottle and ensure their shoes are tied tightly and a hat is in their tennis bag.
2. Remind your child that you will be proud of them whatever the outcome
3. Emphasize effort, attitude and enjoyment
4. Have a positive and happy attitude
1. Walk on court at any time except to pick up balls or by permission from the coach
2. Volunteer advice on line calls, scoring or the conduct of the match
3. Coach your child or give them signals
4. Talk to players or sit or stand near a court in such a way as to distract others.
5. Tell your child that “you can/should win”, which will make them nervous
6. Be negative or show emotions during their time on court

April 29, 2012 – Castro Valley Junior Tennis league welcomes Lisa Dodson, creator of the Total Serve, who gave us a lesson on serving.

 With tennis racquets, balls and courts that are sized right, and play that is appropriate, kids build confidence, improve their skills and stay active.  Players participate at their level against opponents of similar skills.  The emphasis is placed on:

  • Participation
  • Effort
  • Sportsmanship

This low key competition is organized in a format to allow children to play again and again, whether they win or lose.  Matches are short in duration, players are grouped by ability and game modifications allow each child to experience success.  The kids play multiple matches both with and against a variety of players; serving, rally and scoring over a net.
