Are scholarships available? Yes, we provide scholarships for 50% and 75% off the registration fee to disadvantaged youth that reside "in-District." Please submit the Scholarship Request form to Nolan Oberg at email@example.com. Thanks to National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) for providing scholarship support!
Will I need to buy anything extra for my player(s) to participate? No, we provide youth size rackets and red level tennis balls. Players should wear gym shoes and shorts.
Will someone be walking my child from school to the Community Center? Yes, the instructor will meet kids out in front of the Elementary School by the statue of liberty.
Is there time for my child to change into proper clothes for tennis lessons? Yes, the kids will be directed to change in the individual restrooms in the family changing area.
Does my child need to have any tennis experience to be able to participate in lessons? No, the lessons are formatted at a beginner level. Kids will learn the basics of tennis and concentrate on agility, balance and coordination. Parts of the lessons will not even look like tennis, but will equip them with the skills needed to progress in the sport. Some kids will advance quicker than others and that’s okay.
