Spring Break Practice Times

These practice times apply to both varsity and JV Teams. Bring your water.   If you register for the Dearborn Racquet Club practices (see information below), then go there and try to attend the practices that do not conflict with your schedule.

JV Players –  Only a few JV teams will have a large amount of girls, so only the girls who attend practice regularly, demonstrate improvement, and can defeat other members of the team should expect to play regularly.  –  In short, improve yourselves.

It will probably rain on at least one of the days listed below:

RAIN THAT DAY = NO PRACTICE 


 

4/03 Monday    10-12

4/04 Tuesday Canceled

4/05  Wednesday Canceled

Dearborn Racquet Club

High school classes will be held on Saturdays 12:30-2 pm and Sundays 12-2 pm. The Wednesday class 4-6 is not occurring due to lack of numbers these last 2 weeks.  Classes for Saturdays normally would cost $25 per class and Sundays $30 per class.  If a high school can get at least 8 kids to commit to taking lessons at our club  cost would be $20 per class.

Spring Break BootCamp.  Special pricing.  April 4-6 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Time;  Tues / Thursday 12noon-2 and Wednesday 4-6pm. If kids commit to all three days the cost will be $45 paid in full at the beginning of Tuesdays class or a $20 drop in per class cost.  Still a really great deal.
