Dear Parents,
There has been a lot of positive growth and change over the past year with the MSP tennis program. Although Coach Alyce has resigned her coaching position, we are excited to welcome William McClelland and the McClelland Tennis Academy (MTA), which enables tennis at MSP to continue to grow.

 

We have hosted two fundraisers with MTA this year and are confident MTA coaches will bring the same heart and enthusiasm to the afterschool tennis program. With this new partnership, your child will now have the opportunity to experience tennis in many more ways. We offer a full service tennis program beginning with the youngest players in the Tiny Tots classes to the most advanced level of instruction and everything in between like: birthday parties, JTT opportunities, holiday and summer camps, and more!

 

In addition, Valentim Goncalves or Coach Val, an MTA coach, will now be instructing the children during the tennis portion of the physical education classes. Please help us welcome him to the MSP family.
What will remain the same:
  • Low ratios and high-quality instruction
  • Flexible class options
  • Online registration and payment (coming Session 2)
  • Payments for session 1 will still go to MSP
You will continue to see coaching staff members, Jim and Felicity, on the courts.
What will change:
  • Start date will be September 6th, not August 29th. This is to ensure William can be present to greet all the new and returning families and get to know each of you personally.
  • End date will be October 27th. Second session will begin the following week.
  • Please walk to the courts to pick up your child.
Here is William’s contact information should you have any questions:

(251) 232-4800
