MVT offers a comprehensive junior development program with seven levels and two development pathways for ages 5-15. All players are encouraged to begin on the Team Pathway and complete the Rally Levels, where coaches emphasize active, engaged learning through interactive partner rallies.

For first-time juniors over the age of ten, MVT offers a targeted Bootcamp, which covers the fundamentals of Rally 1 and Rally 2 in a rapid-learning environment for mature students.

As students progress, later levels introduce faster, higher-bouncing balls and larger courts. After completing Rally 2, many players will decide to continue on the Team Pathway in Pre-Circuit (Team), where emphasis is placed on the lifelong social and fitness benefits of regular play.

Team participation in USTA Junior Leagues and middle school teams is emphasized, and periodic participation in entry-level, round robin tournaments (USTA L7) is encouraged for matchplay development.

Whatever your personal goals, our mission is to provide you a lifelong learning platform for fitness, fun, and social engagement.
