WAHOO YOUTH TENNIS

2018

(SCHEDULE AND WEEKLY CLINIC DETAILS @ END OF THIS PAGE)


The 2018 Juniors tennis program runs six weeks beginning Monday, June 18th for our Tiny Tots (ages 4 to 6), pre-team kids (ages 7 and 8) and the girls and boys competitive junior teams (ages 9 and older). Boys and girls on the junior team sign up for all six weeks. Pre-team kids can sign up for one week or all six weeks or any combination.

No need to be an experienced match player to join the team. All you need is an interest in tennis and a willingness to learn. All registered kids 9 and up enjoy four weekly practices. Kids selected from the ladder also play in the NVTL matches at 9:30 on Wednesday mornings. In addition, Wakefield Chapel offers a "Tiny Tot" program for kids 4 to 6 and a “pre-team” program for ages 7 and 8. Both programs run four days a week to teach tennis basics to our youngest Wahoos.
 
Whether your child needs to learn the basics or is ready for competitive NVTL match play, don’t miss this cost-effective opportunity to learn from one of the area’s best pros!

 

Tiny Tots for Ages 4 to 6:

This summer, we will continue with our new tennis class geared specifically for 4 to 6-year-olds. Our youngest tennis players will start off with a smaller net and special balls. This enables the kids to control the ball better and improve their skills more quickly. Tiny Tots runs five weeks from June 27th through July 29th on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:00AM to 10:00AM. You can sign up for one week, two weeks, or all five. These classes will be full of fun and games so be sure to sign up today!

IMPORTANT!  Click HERE to see the latest practice schedule. We have shifted times to allow 7 and 8-year-olds to both swim and play tennis. Note that kids age 13+ play from 11:15 to 12:45. This should enable our swim team coaches to also play tennis!
