This summer we will continue contracting with Eastside Tennis with aim of enhancing and improving our tennis program. This season, tennis classes will follow the USTA- Ten and Under Tennis- 3 Stage System. This progression system is used nationwide as well as in Canada and Europe and it is the progression that all the top academies use with their juniors. This system has been designed to make tennis more fun, easier, safer and more encouraging for younger players, and each of our staff members have undergone training in each of the 3 stages. For more information, please view page 8 of the Summer Newsletter.
