Dear Stowe Tennis Club Parents and Juniors,
We are very happy to have both our resident pro, Mike Tasi, as our Head Pro, Simba Happy as well as most of our experienced coaches from last summer. Our program will run from June 24 -August 9th In order to provide more structure to our program, players are required to sign up for weeks of participation on the enclosed form. Please see program options listed below.
Afternoon Junior Program
This summer all juniors, ages 8-14, are welcome to participate Monday - Friday. We will not join the USTA Junior Team Tennis League, but will organize matches against other clubs for Friday afternoons. We encourage all players to join the USTA and enter weekend tournaments.
The first week of the program will be dedicated to assigning our afternoon participants to a group according to their ability. After that we will continue with a structured program covering all facets of the game including fun games at the end of each afternoon.
If the children want to bring drinks and a snack, it can be stored in the refrigerator in the 'Lean Too'. In addition, children should bring a bathing suit and towel to the club, which should be neatly stored in the locker rooms and taken home each day. Please have your children use a cover-up over their bathing suits on the deck and in the clubhouseThe Junior Doubles Club Championships will take place the week of July 22-26 and the Junior Singles Club Championships will take place the week of July 29 – August 2. Players will be required to register for the club championships this year in early July. The instructors of the Junior Program will not drive the players to “away” matches, transportation must be provided by the parents. We will also need many volunteers for home matches and will ask parents to provide drinks and snacks. Please sign up weekly at the clubhouse.
We are offering an early registration discount if your application for the program is received by April 15. On and before that date the fee will be $340 for the first and $310 for each additional child. After April 15, the fee will be $375 for the first and $345 for each additional child.
