he USTA Norcal Red Ball Junior Team Tennis – HITS has been a great addition to our youth sports offerings. In Fall 2015 we had approximately 25 young athletes complete this fun, educational, and challenging program. As a program that aims to make the athletic experience available to children of all backgrounds and athletic abilities, I greatly appreciated the program’s balance of fun with a healthy level of competition. This is a great program for children who have an understanding of basic tennis fundamentals and are ready for the next step in their tennis journey. USTA Norcal could not have been a better partner in ensuring we delivered a quality program. As someone with little tennis experience, I was highly impressed with USTA Norcal’s involvement in making sure my staff was ready to lead the program at all times. Starting with the coaches training and continuing with in-person visits throughout the season, USTA Norcal was a dependable resource for our program.
Throughout the course of the program the players made great improvements and had a blast! As great as it was to see them improve their techniques, the camaraderie and sportsmanship developed between the players was equally impressive. I am now constantly asked by parents to hold more tennis programs. I believe through this program we are inspiring a new generation of lifelong tennis players.
