YOUTH TENNIS

TEN & UNDER TENNIS 6-8 & 9-11 YRS

Children ages 6-8 can learn the game of tennis using modified tennis balls and smaller courts to allow for easier learning. Balls are lower in compression: they bounce lower and don’t move as fast. This gives kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized for small hands and the courts are small and easier to cover. * No classes during spring break. AGES DAYS

TREE SELECTION AND PLANTING

Choosing a tree requires careful consideration of soil and the environment along with considering the mature characteristics of the tree. Boise City arborist Ryan Rodgers will point out cultural requirements and growth habits of tree varieties that do well in the Treasure Valley. Planting incorrectly is one of the most common reasons for tree failure. Unfortunately, sometimes the problem isn’t evident for 10 or more years. Once you’ve chosen the perfect tree for your area, learn the correct way to plant, or what to look for when someone else plants, to ensure the long term success of the tree. AGES DAYS TIME
