Individual and small group lessons


Are you looking to enhance your skills for your middle school, high school, or club program?  

Several Empire Junior coaches are available for private and semi-private lessons. 

Players from any club or not club players, are permitted to contract with coaching staff.  Interested athletes would contact the coach directly and the coach will schedule court time(s).  Coaches will be paid directly for lessons received.

Prices will vary due to number of participants, and will be negotiated with by each coach.  These hour long lessons sessions are structured for 1 on 1 training or small groups (up to 8 girls per session).  Small groups are $25 per session (4 or more) and scheduled directly with the Coach leading the session. 

After scheduling a lesson, should a conflict arise, please contact the coach via cell phone to cancel.  If you fail to contact or do not leave at least 3 hours notice, you must still pay in full for the lesson before scheduling again.
