USTA H.I.T.S. TENNIS • Ages 5-10
H.I.T.S. (Honesty, Integrity, Teamwork, Sportsmanship) is a program for kids 10 and under that incorporates the fundamentals of a team sport with the life skills enrichment. With this program the use of "right-sized" equipment (in regards to weight, length, speed and size) allows any child between ages five and ten to start playing tennis almost immediately, even if he/she has never picked up a racquet before. H.I.T.S. focuses on growing a child's core values as well as the athlete. During this 6-week program, kids will participate in fun activities while learning the fundamentals of tennis in a safe and supportive environment. Greater Vallejo Tennis Association (GVTA) will provide rackets and balls to use during the program.
