What We Offered
Junior workshop for the elementary schools. This workshop provides physical education teachers to see a demonstration of the QuickStart Tennis format.
We can also offer a starter kit of equipment to assist them in the tennis sessions that they will conduct.
WE hope that kids, who have not been introduced to tennis prior to playng in these sponsored physical education classes, will transition into the local USTA Jr. Team Tennis League and/or NJTL or other after-school tennis programs.
Not only does the programs get elementary school kids immediately into tennis with the QuickStart Tennis format, but it gives those who enjoy the sport an outlet to play outside of the school system. The format uses short courts and modified equipment to help make the learning process easier and a lot more fun. Using this process, the kids will gain confidence by seeing their own immediate progress, making them more enthusiastic about continuing to play and improve. As players advance in skill, they can continue to participate in USTA Jr. Team Tennis as they graduate from modified courts to full-court formats.
