Rex This is my best friend, Rex. I rescued him when he was just a puppy from the Humane Society. Most people think pit bulls are mean dogs, but Rex is super friendly and super cool. He also loves treats and his favorite trick is to “pound it,” where he hits your fist with his snout. Hopefully we will see you around the neighborhood!

2014 Pebble Creek
Letter from the PCVHOA President Dear Neighbors, We feel we’ve progressed in making our community better and safer in 2013 and are hoping that you can attend our annual meeting on January 21, 2014 at the Community Center. Our priority for 2014 is to become a Fining Association. The volunteers for this committee will consist of 3 to 7 people that are not board members or family of board members in 2014. Our goal is to keep Pebble Creek Village a desired community for people looking to purchase or sell their home. The committee meets only when a homeowner does not comply with or disputes a violation. The homeowner has ten minutes to state their case and, after they have left the premises, the committee members will vote to enforce the penalties or change the violation report. The votes of committee members will be kept confidential. Please consider volunteering for this committee. WE NEED YOU!
WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
We wish you all many blessings in the New Year. Stan Chmura President, PCVHOA

PEBBLE CREEK NEWS / JANUARY 2014
JUMP into the New Year with more explosive tennis! To play tennis well, your legs must provide a strong, stable base of support. Ground strokes and volleys both start with a split-step, during which the muscles of the legs absorb the shock of touching down on the ground, and are typically followed by an explosive movement in one direction or the other. When a player is pulled wide for a shot, he must recover toward the center of the court. If his legs are strong, he can recover faster and more often without fatigue. The box jump is a great plyometric drill that focuses on training your legs for explosive movements, which are required quite often during the course of a match, such as when changing direction. In addition, training the legs for explosive power helps develop a better tennis serve: Your legs play an important role in transferring force from the ground up to the rest of your body.
Variation: Single-leg box jump
1. This more advanced version of the box jump has you jump- ing with only one leg. This jump requires a considerable amount of strength and coordination and is a highly advanced exer- cise; it’s recommended only for advanced players. 2. The single-leg box jump may be performed with either leg. Use a box that is lower than the box used for the regular box jump— one that is about 4 to 16 inches high. 3. Execute the rest of the exer- cise in the same manner as the twolegged jump. *Article contributed by Lori Miles, director of the Pebble Creek tennis program for kids. The Pebble Creek tennis program is open to all residents. All lessons are instructed by a USPTA certified professional. Contact Lori at 813-7272240 or PCTennis4Kids@msn.com for more information.
The Box Jump:
The Tennis Lesson Schedule is:
1. You will need a sturdy box that is 12 to 42 inches high, depending on your ability. Stand facing the box, approximately one to two feet from it, with your feet shoulder-width apart. 2. Move your elbows toward your hips by squeezing your shoulder blades together. Maintain a 45-degree bend in the elbows. Raise the upper back and keep the feet off the floor. 3. Return to the starting position and repeat. Repeat.
