Where ‘Connection & Consideration’ Rule
Are you seeking a back-to-school tennis course for your child? If so, do consider the well-regarded programming options – and working with highly experienced and caring coaches – at Armonk Tennis Club. There, you’ll find different levels and courses for children ages 4-18 through their Junior Development Program and Armonk International Tennis Academy. There’s an option for any tennis-loving child!
When asked what makes the club’s tennis programs unique, Tennis Director Doug Sherman offered: “The quality of the coaching. And continuity.” He explained further: “We’ve had a lot of the same core coaches around for a while, so they’ve established a lot of good relationships with the players. There’s a level of connection and consideration.” Allie Cooper, a recent Byram Hills High School graduate and longtime player at Armonk Tennis Club adds “I remember my first day at Armonk Tennis with Doug. I was so afraid of disappointing him, but he was so supportive. Now I have a great relationship with him and all of the coaches. I’ve loved getting to bond with them and other players through such a great sport in an equally great community.”
Beau Shea, the club’s Marketing Manager, described different programs offered at Armonk Tennis, as well as at Armonk Indoor Sports Center, which is under the same ownership and therefore works hand in hand to develop junior players.
The Junior Development Program is the foundational course and can be joined by anyone ages 4-16. It is suitable for beginners, players looking to progress at a less demanding pace, or any child looking to focus on fun.
Armonk International Tennis Academy, on the other hand, is a program for players who strive for more competition and challenge. Within the Academy, children ages 7-18 can follow one of two paths. The High Performance path, based at Armonk Indoor, is for tournament-level players, while the Team path is for kids with more modest goals, such as to play on their school tennis team.
