Her current junior beginner class is ending this week. I am going to talk to several clubs in the area and see if there is a program that fits her needs. The dilemma is she's not a tournament level player yet but she needs to practice several times a week. And it's difficult to practice with her several times a week because of the expensive court fees and availability during the Winter. I'm hoping there will be some type of developmental program for advanced junior beginners that meet several times a week. It will probably be expensive but that's just something my wife and I will have to decide if it's worth it.
Thanks for all the replies!
