"Tennis Academy, 2012," a summer tennis program for Sequim youth ages 5-16 is scheduled for July 2-13 and hosted by instructor Don Thomas.
Classes run from 9 a.m.-noon daily (except for July 4) at Sequim High School's tennis courts, 601 N. Sequim Ave.; classes are designed for youth who are non-beginners.
The program is structured to include some "classroom" time as well as dynamic and static stretching, strength conditioning, agility training, stroke analysis and practice, advanced techniques, strategy and match playing time. Classroom time includes such subjects as history of tennis, rules of tennis, tennis safety, health/injury issues, and strategy, followed by written exams.
The academy is limited to 30 youth considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Thomas said he does not plan to charge for the academy.
