Middle School Program

Plans are being solidified for the ATA/ NMSU-A Community Education Middle School Tennis Program to be offered to students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades this fall.

This will be the 4th year that ATA has offered thiscommunity service program which helps introduce young players to tennis and also helps prepare interested players for the high school team.

Cameron Brace-Emmert will be the lead instructor this year, and the program will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 4 weeks, beginning Aug. 23rd, from 5:00-6:30 PM.

ATA volunteers are needed to help with instruction. This is a good opportunity for ATA to show our appreciation to the community for our courts and to promote tennis in Alamogordo. Please give this serious consideration. If you can help out (all or some of the sessions) please contact John White or Evelyn Genta.

Cameron will be conducting a training session for volunteers on Thursday, Aug. 18 (the week before we start the program) from 5:00-6:30 to show us how he wants to teach each skill and what drills he uses to do so.
