Full 2018 Tennis Program Information will be posted soon!
The 2018 summer season is fast approaching! Registration for Youth Tennis will begin soon. Our new Tennis Instructor this year will be Jonathan Diamond, from Five Star Tennis Center, Naperville/Plainfield. We are looking forward to a successful, fun summer!
As is the past, lesson times will coordinate with swim team times, giving our youth the opportunity to be involved in both activities, if desired. This means that tennis lessons are grouped by age, not necessarily “ability” levels. Coach Jonathan will be using the USTA guidelines for teaching. Within each group, he will do his best to group those of similar play ability together within that group. We will do our best to be sure that our kids have the best experience possible.
Some age groups may be larger than others and we may need to adjust times, if necessary, but will work with everyone to avoid conflicts.
- Registration will begin with Hobson West Residents, followed by Non-resident pool members and then Non-residents, in that order.
- This year we will be running TWO sessions: (sign up for one or both sessions)
SESSION 1: Monday, June 4- Friday, June 29 (4 weeks)
SESSION 2: Monday, July 9 – Friday, July 27 (3 weeks)
There will be NO SCHEDULED LESSONS the week of the 4th of July holiday. Instead, some days this week MAY be used for makeups, if needed.
- Class size will be limited to 14 students. We will work on making adjustments for age groups that may have more than 14 per class choice. We are offering two options:
M/W or T/Th. This gives the best opportunity for all to participate. As in the past, IF space allows, we MAY be able to open it up to all four days, but possibly not for all age groups.
- Lesson MAKE-UPS
We will NOT have any make-up lessons for an absence due to personal reasons. (i.e. No-shows, other commitment, etc.) Make up lessons will be for weather related delay or cancelations ONLY, and at the time that Coach Jonathan assigns. (Do not come to another class session for make-up unless arranged with Coach ahead of time.) Weather issues may require some classes to be postponed and not others. When possible, make-ups will be on Fridays of the same week. There will be notification at the time of cancelation as to what your class will be doing.Those make-ups will be held later the same day, whenever possible. They will be rescheduled for other times when the weather does not cooperate, and/or Fridays, if needed. There will be notification at the time as to what your class will be doing.Planned vacation absences can be made up, but ONLY by informing us ahead of time and it will be Coach Jonathan that assigns times with you. Please let Diane know your vacation schedule, if known, on your registration forms.
- Don’t forget—we have a TWITTER account! This is where Coach will notify of any weather associated delays or class changes. Follow on TWITTER: @Hobson_West or find the feed on the Hobson West homepage.
We are looking forward to another successful, fun-filled season!!
