2015 Summer Junior Program

 
Summer Session begins June 15th and ends with season-ending picnic on July 31.
 
 

Tennis Lessons: 

All Urban Tennis Lessons incorporate the Play First, then Play Better philosophy into instruction.  We use age appropriate equipment (racquets provided as needed) so that your children are successful, and then teach them the skills needed to improve as players.  In addition, our inclusion of life skills training provides important lessons for success off the court.  We value and teach the SPUT SPIRIT – (S) service, (P) perseverance, (I) integrity, (R) responsibility, (I) imagination, and (T) teamwork.  Reading for ages 8 and under is offered weekly after lessons!  Fee includes t-shirt, tennis instruction, sportsmanship incentives, optional Friday Play Days and season ending picnic.  Both daytime classes or evening classes are offered to accommodate busy families.
 

SPUT Sampler Camps: 

SPUT Sampler Camps offer a condensed version of our acclaimed summer program, with a high dose of tennis instruction for players just starting out with the sport.  Each camp runs Monday - Thursday with Fridays used only in case of inclement weather.  Participants are encouraged to participate in SPUT’s Friday Play Day events to test their skills in entry level competition.  All camps provide instruction in tennis technique, strategy, and good sportsmanship.  Kids age 8U will take a short snack and reading break in the shade with book selections that tie into our SPUT SPIRIT life skills curriculum.  Racquets provided for your use as needed.  Please wear tennis shoes, sunscreen, and bring water.
