you for your time and effort in teaching our children. I believe Jr team tennis is a wonderful learning ground
for what hopefully will be the "Sport of a Life time" for many of these youngsters. You have helped
launch this ( and many others ) group and I am thankful that both Sarah and Shannon have been involved
with you in this program. Sarah really enjoyed this season and plans on playing more and more tennis ( her words
It was and is particularly fun to watch the whole group
grow and improve over the season. I did have other parents say this to me as well and I hope they
share those comments with you.
Thanks for all your help with the team Stan! M. Y.____________________________________________________________________
for all of your hard work and support. Linnea has really enjoyed team tennis with you. She will be turning 15
in April, so I assume she is not eligible to play in February. Kindly correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks so
much and wishing you and yours a lovely holiday season.
Thanks for all of your efforts.
Tyler enjoyed the season!

Dear Players, Parents and all,
Over 100,000 youths participated in the USTA Jr. Team Tennis program nationwide this
year. I am pleased that you all were part of the program. Thank you for supporting our teams this season. We plan, organize
and participate in this program to help junior players learn and grow in a comfort zone. Competition is intimidating and with
our support we can educate the players to understand the challenges and the rewards of learning how to compete.
I hope you had a good experience, and learned more about tennis and yourself. Parents, I hope you enjoyed watching the players
grow in the game.
The next season will start in February with a kick-off practice and parent meeting. The Sunday
noon warm-up will be suspended until the next teams are formed and begin to practice again.
With this revised schedule
I will devote more time to giving private lessons, semi-private lessons and conducting the 5 groups of my Junior Development
Progressions (JDP). All team members are invited and encouraged to attend the level 5 (advanced) group meeting at 4:30 on
Fridays. The drop in rate is $28 and the package rate is $100 for four meetings. This level 5 specializes in developing the
doubles game since it is a major part of Team Tennis, high school, and college matches. When players learn the doubles basic
strategies they can develop winning ways and have a great time.
Thanks very much for another great season of learning
and please send me any comments you may have.

This USTA sponsored program is for boys and girls
18, 14, or 12 and under with beginning and intermediate skills who want to learn about tournament play. The emphasis is on
a fun experience along and the path to improvement, and make friends. There are 3 seasons per year. Call me or register

Country Club, as well as other clubs including Flint Canyon Tennis Club, Rose Bowl Tennis, and the Valley Hunt Club.
Here are some Highlights
of the Junior Team Tennis program from October 17, 2010
I run two USTA Jr. Team Tennis teams. The
Fall season is packed and runs from October to Christmas with matches every Sunday afternoon. We tried to play two matches
today but the weather did not cooperate. Notice the attached photo.
We attempted to be optimistic and wish
the drizzles away while we pushed the rollers this morning. We came out and tried to dry the courts but even with sincere
volunteers from the 12 and under team and the 14 and under team we couldn't hold back the rain.
We will reschedule.
Hope all is well with you.
