Todd Martin Youth Leadership (TMYL) exists to prepare young people, especially those from under-resourced families and communities, for success as individuals and as active, responsible citizens through innovative tennis, education, life skills, and leadership development programming.
TMYL provides opportunities for young people to learn the game of tennis, live by the code of conduct, become academically successful and to acquire the life skills necessary to be active, confident, and successful citizens of their communities. This is done through classes, programs, and opportunities of special events.
TMYL is a chapter of the USTA Foundation/National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL).
The USTA/National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) is a tennis development program open to youth, ages 6 - 18. Sessions focus on development and competition of the beginner and intermediate player starting with the new Quick Start Tennis approach. The QuickStart format utilizes modified tennis balls, smaller tennis racquets and a smaller tennis court to make it easier for students to start playing tennis almost immediately, even if they have never picked up a racquet before.
