Tennis professionals coach students through drills, games and match play, emphasizing sportsmanship, teamwork and skills enhancement.
Students will receive technical instruction along with coach-fed drilling and play with one another. Clinics will have a 4:1 ratio and will practice the appropriate safety guidelines for tennis, as well as other off-court instituted and required safety protocols.
- Clinics are separated by age group and will run in 8 separate week-long sessions meeting Monday through Friday.
- Students must provide their own racquet and water, as there will be no shared equipment.
- Adjustments will be made for missed sessions due to weather.
- Weekly Sessions run from July 6 through August 24.
