power pod junior training

FALL & WINTER 2020/2021

Customized. Small. Results-driven. 

We have partnered with Bethesda Country Club to offer customized small training pods for players and parents that are seeking both the highest quality instruction and a smaller footprint and stringent safety protocols.

Tennis - when done safely - can be a wonderful outlet for our kids during these times of social distancing and isolation and provide both a physical and social outlet for the Fall and Winter.

 

Our Fall/Winter program is 29 weeks from September 21 - April 12 (blackout dates are 11/26 an 12/24-1/1) indoors at Bethesda Country Club. We place kids in small 5-player PODS based on their age and level. They train together for the season so that they get to know each other and so does their assigned coach.  This creates social bonds and accelerates their progress.

Depending on the day, we have a limited number of 10-20 spots open - and thus 2 to 4 PODS operating.  You may register your child individually and we will place them in a POD, or you can create your own POD with friends and reserve the POD. 

 

Given the small and customized nature of our program, we strongly encourage you to register early.  Once we reach our maximum allowed capacity, we will not be able to add any more students.

TESTIMONIALS

I just wanted to send you a note to thank you!  I don’t know anything about tennis, but you seem to be an amazing teacher!  I am so impressed with how hard you get Zoey to work for the entire hour, and I have noticed her improving tremendously.  I love that you challenge her, and really seem committed to teaching her.  She really loves the lessons.  You guys all seem to really get to know the kids you work with, and seem very interested in their success.  I really appreciate that.
Just thought I would let you know how impressed we are with your lessons!
