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)
