Junior Special Events

The Junior Team at RCW recognizes the importance of camaraderie and socialization among children. We are excited to host events for our junior players that emphasize the friendship and community that can come from a sport like tennis. We believe it's just as important for juniors to come together for fun events as it is for players to regularly attend practices. Below is the current schedule of Special Events planned for our junior players! We invite anyone and everyone to attend. If you have questions about the appropriate events for your child(ren), please reach out to our Junior Team at juniors@rcwtennis.com

Matchplay Events

(ages 10-12 years old)

Throughout the year, our Junior Team has planned several matchplay events for our junior program players.

NEW PROGRAM ALERT!
Girls on the Court 

Our team is launching a brand new program designed for our teen girls (ages 12-18 years old).

 

The mission: To give young girls a comfortable, “safe”, welcoming environment to continue to be introduced to the sport of tennis. 

This program will allow these players to pursue tennis with other like-minded girls in a way that supports their personalities and current mindset, while helping them strengthen their resolve and relationship with the competitive aspects they will encounter as they continue to improve. We will incorporate a variety of mentors throughout the series that provide insight, share experiences, and help serve as leaders.

 

The program will run from 4pm-6pm on Thursdays. These two hours will involve an appropriate athletic warm-up, followed by a weekly topic and work on a specific skill, followed by singles and doubles match play with coaches helping them navigate all aspects of match play.  Each session will end with mentors/coaches leading a 20-30 minutes discussion on a topic that helps these girl navigate their journey in sport and life.

Thursdays 4pm-6pm

7 week series:

June 23rd, June 30th, July 14th, July 21st, July 28th, August 4th, August 11th
