2006 Junior Teams

With the tennis season just around the corner, the Board has been following the guidance of staff and parents.

We have tentatively decided to put together 4 team options for our young players this season:

1.  A travelling team program for 8-10 young male/female players. This will involve travel to out of town events. They would have approx. 3-4 practices per week. This will be coached by Kevin Wright and Rob Dawson.

2.  A developmental program for players who are working on their skills and not yet ready for the rigors of competitive play. This is oriented to the intermediate player. They would have approx. 3 practices per week; have matchplay; and be introduced to some competitive events. This group will be coached by Ricky Miron, Rob and Cam Shaw.

3. A “Under 10” Team for players who are  learning the game. This program would focus on skills and involve approx. 3 sessions per week. This group will be coached by Rachelle Miron and Tilly Wolfram.

4. A girls team. This is for intermediate girls and has 3 sessions per week. Rachelle and Tilly will coach this group.

In 2005, there were significant numbers on some of the teams and as a result these groups were subdivided. If there is similar demand, the same may occur.

Given the number of groupings, there would be some costs associated with this. These expenses relate to coaching fees, equipment, participation in the Tennis Fair, team T- shirt, etc. Naturally we will stratify the fees associated with each program and the club will subsidize as best we can.

If any parents have any business contacts that would make a donation/sponsorship to junior tennis, it would be helpful to our young people.
