The Summer Junior Drop-in Program (July & August) will begin July 5, 2021, and end August 20, 2021
J1 is from age 6 (before Sept 30) to age 10 and this group plays from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm, weekdays.
J2 is from age 11-14 and this group plays from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, weekdays.
Both Groups play at Mission Hill Courts on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and at Willoughby Courts on Tuesday and Thursday.
The main "to do" points for the Junior Drop-in:
- Juniors should have running shoes providing good support
- They should wear clothing appropriate for weather (hats? Sunscreen?)
- Rackets of various sizes are available to use at the sessions, but if your junior becomes a regular player, it would be best to get them their own, properly fitted, racket.
- All other equipment and balls are provided by the club
- Please be punctual in pickup of young juniors after their program ends at either 2:00 pm or 3:00 pm
The Drop-In sessions are not structured tennis lessons (as is found in the Camp Sessions - (Youth Camps - St. Albert Tennis Club (stalberttennis.club) ) They are a mixture of light lesson structure, fun and play. They are an opportunity for young players to reinforce skills, learn the fundamentals of tennis and have fun with like-minded juniors. As the skill level varies considerably with experience and age, our coaches generally create a beginner group and a more advanced group within the same age category. The goal of this program is to help kids learn to love the game.
Weather cancellations: notice of cancellation due to weather conditions will be sent by email. A backup notification may also be placed on the fence in view of the webcam video available on the webpage. The webcam notification will only be used when a sudden weather change occurs. The Drop-in Program is offered on a weather permitting basis and there is no redress if a session is cancelled due to player safety concerns.
Coaches: Lydia Samis and Jena Cheng. Two very personable, competent and experienced tennis instructors who are currently members of the U of Alberta Panda Tennis Team.
