We will be needing Parent Volunteers to help with coordinating and coaching !!!
Program Coordinator: We are looking for a coordinator to assist with organizing and planning for the upcoming season and ongoing equipment needs. This position is needed before moving on.
Lead Instructor: This Lead will Guide the program and instruct the parent Coaches on what they will be doing each night.
Parent Coaches: We are looking for parent coach volunteers to assist our Lead Instructor. You would likely have 4-6 kids per Parent Coach. There may also be a HS Tennis players there to assist you. Once a drill or skill is taught to players and coaches, you will be responsible for teaching and reinforcing the skills necessary for that drill or game. You will be placed in the same group as your child.
There will be a parent meeting to help understand your roles in this process - You DO NOT need to know how to coach Tennis (Other than the Lead Instructor) to make this work.
Many have been asking about the correct sizes for your youth players as it pertains to your tennis racket. Each individual is different depending on size, strength, and ability level, but mostly it follows these guidelines.
3-4 yrs old: 19" racket
4-6 yrs old: 21" racket
6-7 yrs old: 23" racket
8-14 yrs old: 25" racket
14 and Up: 27" racket (adult size)
There are changes in grip size, mainly at the 25" and 27" racket, but those are determined by comfort in having a larger handle or smaller handle.
