2020-21 Junior Team Tennis (JTT) Program at NTC

 

Naperville Tennis Club’s JTT Travel Team Program provides a positive competitive learning environment to develop our players both on and off the courts.  Team Tennis is fun and develops players’ passion for the game so that each player has a strong desire to fulfill their potential.  Match experience is critical in player development and drives their improvement.  On-court coaching (all coaches safe certified) helps players learn to make decisions and execute them under game pressure boosting their confidence and fostering team camaraderie.

Signup will begin when the schedule is published by USTA – CDTA.  We are hoping for double headers, but this depends on clubs court times and number of teams in the league.

Notes relative to Covid Protocol:  Here is a link to NTC’s tennis protocol.  JTT specific protocol is detailed below.  None of the clubs in the league require masks oncourt.  Oak Park does not allow spectators at the time of this email.  All the protocols are subject to change and players need to follow the strictest of the rules, for example, NTC allows scorecards to be sanitized and used, JTT does not, so you cannot use the scorecards during any JTT matches.

JTT Players will receive positive reinforcement to develop self-confidence.  They will be encouraged to take risks and make mistakes.  Learning through risks and failures fuels creative point play and supports active positive decision making on (and off) the court.

This fall season is short and we have a limited number of team positions.  We will attempt to accommodate as many players as possible within the safety protocols, but encourage you to sign up as soon as possible.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on the courts!

2. Players/spectator should arrive no more than 10 minutes before scheduled match times; and leave immediately after scores are reported

 

3. To minimize the size of group gatherings, ONLY Player plus 1 spectator will be allowed on site

 

4. Hand sanitizer will be available at each facility

 

5. Players must bring their own water bottles/containers; water may not be available

 

6. Players must wear masks when entering the facilities and courts; masks are not mandatory while playing

 

7. Spectators must wear masks at all times at indoor facilities

 

8. Score cards will not be used on court

 

9. Failure to comply with the COVID-19 Procedures, by the player or spectator, will result in match disqualification for the player
