WAHOO YOUTH TENNIS

2017

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


The 2017 Juniors tennis program runs five weeks beginning Monday, June 26 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 sing up for all five weeks. Pre-team kids can sign up for one week or all five 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! 

Practices:

From Monday, June 26 through July 28, 2016, the junior team (ages 9 and up) practices four days a week and plays NVTL matches on Wednesdays. Practice days and times vary depending on gender and age. Click HERE to see the 2016 practice schedule. NOTE: There is no tennis practice on July 4th.

The pre-team (kids 7 and 8) practice four days a week at 8:00AM from Monday, June 26 through July 28, 2016. There is no practice on Wednesdays as these are match days.
 
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! 

Matches:

Wakefield Chapel fields two NVTL junior teams in the summer. We play Boys 11-18 (Level B) and Girls 11-18 (Level B). Matches are played on Wednesdays at 9:30AM from June 27 through July 29.

For each Wednesday match, we field the following players:
 
Girls 11-18:  four players for each age group (2 singles/1 doubles) in the 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18 categories (total of 9 courts)
 
Boys 11-18:  four players for each age group (2 singles/1 doubles) in the 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18 categories (total of 9 courts)

Contact and Volunteers:

LeeAnne Alonso will take over as our 2017 Youth Tennis Rep.

We cannot run a successful tennis program without the help of our parent volunteers.

Each week, we need a volunteer to act as our team representative for the boys match.

In addition, we need help driving kids to away matches as well as providing refreshments for home matches.

We have had tremendous participation from our tennis families in the past and look forward to another fabulous season!
