Instruction & Play Days








Spring

Lee Elementary School participants will be dismissed to the school lobby and met by one of our coaches for escort to the play site.

Students from other schools will meet at either the LES gym or LMSHS tennis courts, as scheduled. SafePlay Certified coaches will be on site at 3:15pm to check in children, hand out snacks, and supervise free play. Structured play will begin at about 4pm, allowing for the arrival of children from more distant schools. Play will continue until 5:30pm, when children will be dismissed directly to their parents or assigned guardian. Detailed instructions will be sent after enrollments close on 4/17. The safety of your child is our deepest concern!


The program is being led by PTR Certified Instructor Clare "Bunnie" Lahey, assisted by volunteer PlaySafe certified adult tennis players, college students, PE teachers, and parents. Please let us know if you would like to volunteer!


Our target audience is 3rd to 6th graders, but a few exceptions will be made for those meeting the minimum requirements. If there is some difficulty at the first session, not to worry - most children have not had a chance to play during the winter months and will be just fine after some practice with the coaches. We want this to be a positive experience for all children!

Descriptions of Programs
Munchkin Tennis: QuickStart Tennis format introduces our youngest children to tennis skills in a non-threatening manner, developing eye-hand-ball skills which progress easily into racquet handling. Racquets and courts are tailored to a child's size. Slower and lower bouncing balls ease a child into moving to the ball and rallying over the net. A variety of fun, fast- paced games, with every child constantly involved, introduce the forehand, backhand, volley, serve, and footwork. Children participate in rotation through various skill stations, then small group contests, and finally games that introduce scoring and rallying.
