JUNIOR TENNIS LESSONS

Whether your child is just starting the game or is trying to make a school team, we have lessons designed to take them to the next level. Our Star Junior Tennis and MXP Tennis programs use a progressive court system that include 36’, 60’ and 78’ (regular size) tennis court. Coupled with ensuring proper racquet length and using different types of tennis balls based on age and ability, our goal is to get your child playing tennis as soon as possible. This system gives your child a visible progression to maximize their improvement. Lessons are divided into three critical phases beginning with a warm-up emphasizing tennis specific movement and coordination. This is followed by a skill-building phase and skills are then practiced “live” in a competitive phase, where rallying and game conditions are experienced.

GREEN UP with FARGO PARKS

3 WAYS

YOU CAN

GIVE BACK

TO THE PARKS

1

ADOPT-A-PARK

The Fargo Park District invites you to help keep your parks clean by joining our Adopt-A-Park Program. This is a great way for an individual, service club or group to help keep our parks clean along with having your own sense of pride in our community. For more information, please call at 551-5891 or visit FargoParks.com

2

ADOPT-THE-RED

The greatest threat to the Red River today is non-point source pollution. Keeping the banks of the Red River litter-free is one way to reduce non-point source pollution. The Adopt-The-Red program stresses prevention of litter accumulation and rubbish removal by recruiting people to “adopt” reaches of the river. Cleanups remove trash and litter while increasing community pride. For more information, please call 551-5891.

MEMORIALS & TRIBUTES

Commemorate significant people and note-worthy events with a tribute tree or bench within the park system. A tribute bench or tree provides lasting recognition of the significant people and occasions in your life while serving as a great enhancement to many people’s quality of life in Fargo. For more information, please call 499-7778.
