Sonoma Valley Tennis Association (SVTA) is pleased to publicly thank Kiwanis of Sonoma Plaza for their generous donation to our youth tennis program. Because of the continuing support of Kiwanis, as well as other local benevolent sponsors, SVTA is able to offer community free tennis programs specificallydesigned to encourage Sonoma youth participation.
SVTA is now in the middle of our super popular Summer Junior Free Program for kids ages 6 to 15. The younger players learn about ball behavior, racquet hitting, and playing along with others, all of which translates into self-confidence in team play situations and life itself. The older players work on the game of tennis, strokes and competitive play, all of which also translates into life skills of self-confidence, team participation and social interaction.
Our Junior Committee is working to develop more free community directed programs for youth, which coupled with our established Teaching Pro Junior Clinics, will allow us to deliver a rich program for Sonoma youth. Kiwanis is underwriting this effort and we thank them.
