Classes include instruction, drills, fun games, fitness, agility and team building exercises. For players at every level, there’s a personalized approach to improving power, control, and game play strategy. Every level will work to learn and improve the forehand, backhand, volley, and serve. Instructors will divide the participants into appropriate ages and skill levels the first week of lessons. Registration: SESSION I Deadline is May 31; SESSION II Deadline is July 5 Ages: 4-18 Dates: SESSION I: June 3 – 27; SESSION II: July 8 – August 1 Location: Rudd Park Courts, 12th and College

9-11— Participants will continue to refine strokes and build confidence, agility, and consistency on the court. Scoring and the rules of tennis will be mastered.

Notes: Please bring your own water bottle and wear sunscreen. Students need to wear court appropriate tennis shoes (no sandals) Students will be required to do some running! Classes missed may be made up with prior arrangements! EACH PLAYER MUST PROVIDE HIS/HER OWN TENNIS RACQUET.
CHOOSING A TENNIS RACQUET: The following are standard guidelines for age and racquet length selection: If an 8 year-old is the size of an average 10 year-old, choose the 10-12 racquet. Move up one size (possibly two) to adjust for exceptionally high physical strength or ability, but adjusting down for lack of strength is almost never necessary. A junior player should use as long a racquet as he/she can comfortably handle. This will encourage development of smooth strokes that utilize good weight transfer and larger muscles. Too small a racquet encourages excessive wrist and elbow action, which, in the long run, will harm both stroke development and the arm. A junior is generally ready for an adult racquet when weighing 85 pounds or more. Age 0-4 4-5 6-7
Racquet Length 19 inches 21 inches 23 inches

ORCHARD OF HOPE FOUNDATION
The Vision of the Orchard of Hope Foundation is a world where cancer patients concentrate on the demanding road to recovery rather than the financial burdens associated with treatment. On July 13 they will host their annual Walk For Hope at Veteran’s Park. Teams, Businesses, Organizations and Groups team up to raise funds for the Orchard of Hope Foundation. Enjoy an exciting day of fun activities, entertainment, valuable drawings, and shopping of local goods. All monies raised at this event benefit the financial needs of local cancer patients as opposed to other organizations that raise monies for research that are not filtered back to our community. Other events still to come this year include a Guardians Angel Dinner and Chili’s Breakfast fundraiser. Visit their website atorchardofhope.org to get more information.
SPECIAL EVENTS COMING SOON
The Cañon City Area Recreation and Park District is always looking to offer special events throughout the year.
