The "Quick Start Tennis" program is designed for students aged 7-10. Quick StartTennis is a new approach to introducing kids to the game. Slower, easier to hit, low compression balls, are used. This allows kids time to get to the ball and helps develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized for age. Full sized courts are reconfigured and smaller according to age allowing easier coverage, Instead of waiting in line. Quick Start allows kids to play the game much sooner. Please note: JEP cannot provide care for students between 3:30 and 4:30PM. Students must be supervised by a child carer or JAC during this time. Ernie Cohen is a U.S.P.T.A. certified tennis professional & sports programmer who has been teaching adults and children in the Washington Area for 25 years. In this class Ernie will work with students whatever their level, to develop basic tennis skills and strokes and share his love for the game. The class will take place indoors for most of the session, using equipment designed for the purpose, including foldable nets and slow bounce balls.
