National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) is back at Brack! This is our seventh year to have NJTL at Brackenridge High School. For those of you not familiar with this program, this is a FREE program for all kids to take tennis lessons and have fun at a camp. We take ages 6-15 (if they are younger, please talk to me because I usually take them), and in the past most of my campers have been from Bonham and other SAISD schools. There is a $10.00 donation requested, but it is voluntary. No child is turned away!
I volunteer my services every year and I am not compensated from this program in any way. In past years we have had many faculty, staff, SAISD employees from other campuses and SAISD police officers bring their kids to participate in this camp.
Tennis camp starts June 11 and we are here Monday – Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Afterwards we normally take kids to the cafeteria for the free lunch program that is offered at Brack. We will not have the camp during the Fourth of July week, and we will end the summer on Wednesday, July 25. Participants must sign up online at www.satennis.com before kids start the camp.
I love having all these youngsters learning how to play tennis, so the more the merrier!! Feel free to send this info to anyone you think will enjoy having their kids in a free daytime summer tennis camp.
