Q&A with NJTL of Indianapolis Summer Youth Tennis Program:
What makes NJTL unique?
Our tennis programming is available to children and teens of all abilities and skill levels, and we plan to have 12-15 locations to choose from. Classes for beginners (Level 1) are usually 45 minutes, while classes for intermediate (Level 2) and more advanced (Level 3) players are usually an hour and a half. The classes are twice a week, with tournaments at the end of the summer.
What activities are offered at NJTL of Indianapolis Summer Youth Tennis Program?
Tennis instruction and more playing opportunities. The players will learn and grow in the sport, with special drills and games to make it fun to learn.
What is the camper-to-counselor ratio?
Each location will have two instructors for a max of 20 youth. Some classes are smaller, from a 6:1 to 8:1 ratio.
How much time do the campers spend outside?
All of the classes are outside, but we hold most of them between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. when it’s a little cooler.
Does NJTL provide lunch/snacks or do parents need to provide them?
We do not provide snacks.
What is the typical daily schedule for campers?
Moat classes are 45 minutes long between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. More advanced classes run an hour and a half between 5 and 8 p.m. (5-6:30 p.m. or 6:30-8 p.m.)
How old are the counselors and how are they trained?
The instructors, all with tennis-playing experience, are mostly between the ages of 16 and 24. They are trained by our program director, who is also a college coach.
What accommodations are made for campers with special needs?
The classes are open to adaptive and wheelchair players — our instructors are trained by our program director, and we will seek additional guidance from a longtime wheelchair tennis advocate as needed.
