Junior varsity players are given the opportunity to develop their skill level in a structured learning environment that constantly challenges them whilst providing both encouragement and support. Coach Piela believes in creating an environment that is conducive to learning. Playing with integrity, making the right choices during and after each point, and playing with heart determine a successful tennis player.
