Framework for Junior Tennis
RCW is embarking on a new era in Junior Tennis Programming. We truly believe we have the most experienced, passionate coaches around who want to grow not just junior tennis but the next generation of future adult players. Tennis is truly an amazing sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Regardless of what age you pick up a racket for the first time with consistent work over time you can continue to improve and play the rest of your life. Lancaster County has one of the most abundant Adult USTA Leagues in the country. Adult players can compete in singles and doubles leagues year round. These leagues provide exercise, competition and social interaction that leads to life-long friendships and a level of wellness most strive for their whole life.
RCW is committed to creating that same environment for young junior players. Many other team sports offer young athletes many of the above mentioned benefits but then they reach the age when playing basketball, soccer, football, lacross, etc is no longer practical or available. Tennis options will continue to be accessible forever. At RCW, we are rolling out a new concept in junior tennis programming and teaching. Players will be placed on teams with other players of similar level and stay with those players throughout a season of practices and “games.” Depending on age and level, games can consist of weekend skills contests, mock point play, actual team matches, tournaments, etc. Players will sign up for the entire “session” and choose between 1+ weekly practices. You are expected to be at your scheduled practices.
