When it comes to our weekly kids tennis classes (located in many great schools around Manhattan, Queens and Nassau County), we could go on for hours about the health and personality benefits for the kids. It’s a great way to teach kids how to be active and energetic in a healthy way. However, we’re just as eager to teach them life skills in our classes and it’s one of the things our parents love the most about the Tiger Tennis program.
In addition to the actual tennis instruction – ranging from simple gross motor skills like catching the ball in the racket cover to learning the proper way to hold the racket; we also take great efforts to instill in our tigers a sense of teamwork and good sportsmanship. These skills will benefit them the rest of their lives, be it in school, business, relationships, or sports competition. The ability to play well with others, rely on others to pull their weight, and to approach healthy competition with respect and good-natured friendliness are cornerstones of a solid value system and what we value at the Tiger Tennis Academy.
Of course, our main efforts during class are keeping the kids focused and entertained while they learn and participate in tennis practice but the foundation of our Academy is based on enriching the kids in meaningful ways that will carry them into a more successful future.
We love adding new kids to the mix and encourage you to reach out if you’re curious about our programs. At the end of the day, it’s all about the kids. We want them happy and healthy. That’s what Tiger Tennis is all about.
