2017 Junior Programs

The junior program runs from September to June. We offer one week camps in July  & August. There are no lessons scheduled on public holidays. To enroll in a program a player must achieve appropriate competencies as assessed by the Kamloops Tennis Centre coaches. The coaches reserve the right to withdraw a player from a program if they determine the player is not at the appropriate level. All programs are based on Tennis Canada’s  “long term athletic development path”

The yearly sessions are as follows:

Fall session – September to December
Winter session – January to April
Spring session – April to June
Summer session – July and August (junior camps)

Juniors enrolled in coaching programs must  be KTC junior members (unless they are from age 5-8 which is Free)

  2. Access to coaching programs
  3. Friday Match Play
  4. Adult leagues (must be approved by the tennis director)
