WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
"We had been searching for tennis lessons for 3-4 yr group and found Coach Aurelie! She is a pro herself and amazing with kids - my son has been enjoying (and improving) her group lessons and we are looking forward to sticking with it! The focus for this age range is drills and hand/eye coordination. Very reasonably priced group lessons, and each session is 10 weeks, which you can easily renew."
"We love coach Aurelie! My daughter started with Coach Aurelie when she was 4. Coach really made it fun to learn tennis and encouraged my very shy kiddo. Fast forward 1.5 years, and after 2 weeks of summer camp, my now 5.5 yo kiddo can hold her own against 6-8 year old. Observing the classes, Coach really knows when to be soft, when to encourage, and when to be firm. Lots of important skills both on and off the court are taught. Now I'm waiting for my other kiddo to be old enough to join her lessons :)"
"My sons have been taking tennis lessons from Aurelie for over a year now and have attended her camps as well. She is wonderful! Very good with the kids, keeps everyone in line but is so much fun and so nice everyone loves her. We couldn't ask for a better coach! I highly recommend Aurelie and the All Court Tennis Academy."
"It is the second year my girls are learning Tennis with coach Aurelie. They play, they learn, they progress, they have fun ... they want to do more ! Tennis with coach Aurelie is : fun, coordination, body control, team spirit, giving the best of yourself, receiving the best of your coach ... Thank you for making it happen!"
"My Son showed an interest in tennis at about 16 months. We found Aurelie and she has been great. He now excels at the sport so well that he might become the next Federer!!!"
"My son has been a student athlete here for 4 years. Can’t say enough good things about his experience. He has grown so much as a player, an athlete and as a person by working on his game here. We are so grateful to Coach Aurelie for her dedication to the sport of tennis and to our kids. Bravo!"
By choosig the Academy Pathway, the price per time drops because you play more tennis. Let us explain with the example below.
Let's say you sign up for Champion Academy Tuesday (1.5 hours), Thursday (1.5 hours), and Match Play (1.5 hours).
That is 3 hours total for 2 days of clinics, as well as 1.5 hours of Match Play. Per week, that is a total of 4.5 hours.
Multiply 4.5 hours by 6 weeks, and that comes to 27 hours of tennis for the session.
Your total price will be $370. If your child attends all 27 hours, then your effective rate is $13.70 per hour.
The same coach will be coaching the 6-week session, in order to continue the progression with the kids.

Each coach is an RPTC staff member, Tennis Professional certified (PTR or USPTA) and youth progression specialized. The curriculum is based on the USTA Net Generation and the French Federation systems.
This curriculum is led by the Director of Tennis, Aurelie Udall. Adrian Waistfield is assisting in the High Performance programs.
Match Play is where the players compete against their peers in singles or doubles matches. It is an introduction to tennis competition, while offering a low-pressure competitive environment for children. Children of all ages can develop their skills through level-based play, without an emphasis on instruction or results.
For the higher-level players, this experience will encourage players to gain match experience, develop their skills through level-based play, and implement skills they trained during the week.
Match Play is held every Sunday during the 6-week session. The schedule is as follows:
Red Ball players come Sunday 12 to 1pm
Orange Ball players come Sunday 1 to 2pm
Green Ball players come Sunday 2 to 3:30pm
Yellow Ball players come Sunday 3:30 to 5:30pm
To maintain the high quality of the clinics, pricing is for the entire 6-week session. The goal is to have commitment from the players for the entire duration. The curriculum for the lesson is progressive from one week to the other. As well, we can assure the pro-to-student ratio is low.
Therefore, drop-in classes are not available at this time.
R.O.G. Tennis (Red Orange Green) follows the same logic as other youth sports, such as baseball or soccer, which use kid-sized equipment.
Kids learn to play baseball by first playing T-ball. They use shorter, lighter bats and larger, softer balls.
Kids learning basketball use short baskets with kid-sized balls on lowered backboards.
Kids in soccer play on smaller fields with smaller goals.
By using this format, the benefits are immediate. Within a short time kids are rallying, playing, and excited to keep playing. That means kids will have more fun and have less frustration.
They're playing real tennis and having real fun—and that's what is the most important.
Frustration is cut down when equipment and rules match kids' development level.
As of September 1, 2016, USTA began using the new National Youth Progression tracking system for 10 and under (10U) players in the section.
The system tracks a player’s progress through participation in progression-eligible Junior Team Tennis and Tournaments.
Junior clinics will be held at Rancho Penasquitos Tennis Club.
