Junior Captains Blog – Teenage Social Tennis

Hi Juniors!!!

This is the first of what will hopefully be many ‘Junior Captains Blog’ posts, which aim to keep juniors in touch with what is going on in the club. We hope to use this blog to update you regularly on upcoming events, junior issues and junior news.

The first event we hope to run is ‘Teenage Social Tennis’ which will be on Fridays from 18:15 to 20:00, starting this Friday 28th of September. This night is for all juniors currently in secondary school. The night will involve an hour of Cardio Type Tennis, run by Janeen with pizza in the Junior Clubhouse afterwards. Hopefully juniors can use the night to have fun and meet up with other teenagers. The night will cost €3 per teenager (to cover the lights and your pizza!).

All you have to do is sign up online here before Friday.

That’s all for now, hope to see ye all on Friday.

Janeen and Kevin

Junior Coaching starts Sep 8th

Dear parents, here at Naas LTC we’re very proud of our children’s tennis lessons and programmes.

Therefore we have adapted a junior coaching programme which offers a range of fabulous children’s tennis activities and a whole host of children’s tennis lessons that cater for every age and ability.

It was fantastic to see so many children participating in our summer camp this year and we hope they will continue on with their tennis into the future, therefore I would like to introduce you to our schedule of junior coaching commencing in September.

This is our autumn term (1 lesson per week). If your child has participated in the summer camp but never had any coaching lessons before I would suggest the General Coaching (GS) – this is a great place to start as it provides an introduction to coaching in a fun environment. We then have an Improver Squad (IS) and a Development (DS) Squad, ideal for players who wish to take their game to the next level.

Summer Camp Child Registration Policy

Dear Parents ,
A gentle reminder that all children must be signed in by an adult at the morning Summer Camp session. The club cannot accept registrations from unattended children and from this Monday morning – any unattended children will be sent home. This is in line with our Child Protection Policy.
We cannot have young children unsupervised around the car park and club before the camp starts at 10am. Parents may wish to arrange with friends to share registration of their children during the week. There is no limit to the amount of children an adult may register, as long as they take responsibility for the children in their care until camp starts at 10 am.
We hope to have resolved a few first week teething issues and the queues should be quicker from Monday !!
Many Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
The Junior Committee
