NorthShore Kids Club to Start January 26th
The first Kids Club of 2013 will kick off the 10 and under season starting January 26th at NorthShore 10:30 am to 11:30 am each week. The cost of the program will continue to be $35 for the entire session and a free junior racquet is included in the cost.
Our Kids Club format is a group clinic for kids 5 to 12 years old. We try to keep the player to instructor ratio at no higher than 10:1. This club is for beginners or novice players. Players will be divided into groups by ages. The 10 and Under format will be used exclusively. This format uses the modified racquet sizes and tennis balls (red and orange) to maximize the benefit of instruction. Kids will learn the very beginnings of tennis in a fun and active environment. Our drills and activities are designed to keep all the kids involved all of the time. Five and six year olds will focus mostly on basic athletic movements like catching and tossing the balls, rolling the ball with the racquet, running, hopping and seeing the ball. 7 and 8 year olds will begin stroke production, proper grips, and hitting the ball in the middle of the racquet. 9 and up will learn more about controlling the height and speed of the ball, moving to the ball in points, and improving strokes.
Please sign up on the form before. Cash and checks will be collected at the first session. We provide all of the equipment. Players just need to be dressed in athletic attire appropriate for the weather and bring their own water. In the case of wet courts, very windy or very cold conditions, postponements will be posted on Facebook and on the website. “Like” us on Facebook and get up to date announcements!
