Tennis Program 2018


The CBSC Tennis Committee and Coaches are excited to offer a summer program of Progressive Tennis lessons, fun tennis activities and club tournaments for players of all ages and skill levels.

We are thrilled this year to announce that this year, both our head Coach and Assistant Head Coach have been part of the CBSC program for years! Levi Chapman, a 7-year veteran coach, will be this year's Head Coach and Riel Tetreault will be returning as Assistant Head Coach and will lead the adult program. Junior classes run throughout the day from 9am to 5pm and twice a week, on M/Th or T/F.

WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE TENNIS?  Progressive Tennis introduces the sport of tennis in a fun and interactive way and ensures immediate success for young players. Using modified tennis balls, racquets, nets and courts, young players are properly equipped to enjoy rallies and learn the fundamentals of the game early on. Skills are developed much quicker, allowing for an easy transition to full court tennis. Tennis Canada fully endorses Progressive Tennis.
