What should I wear?

 All children should wear appropriate sports or tennis attire (dri-fit shirts and shorts or
skirts are best).

Clean T-shirts (no inappropriate language or art) and collared shirts are also acceptable
along with athletic shorts (with pockets).

Sneakers (with non-marking soles) are the only acceptable footwear on tennis courts.

How many weeks of camp should I register my child for?

 In order to really get to experience the sport and begin to learn it, we recommend
registering for at least 2 or 3 weeks of summer camp (which don't necessarily have to
be sequential, if your summer plans don't allow for that).

How many children do you have in each session?

 We have a player to coach maximum ratio of 6:1 (however, minimum is 3 or 4:1). The
class sizes are limited due to the courts availability (which varies by location).

Festivals. Also, players can sign up for a Junior Team Tennis League.

end of class).

What happens if it rains?

 We have designated rain days for makeup usually the week after the Spring sessions.
 
For Summer, players can make up rain days within next week of following camp session.

If Summer camp is cancelled, you will receive an email or call or text message on the morning or evening of camp.

What If my child has to miss a day(s) of camp?

 There are no reimbursements for missed days of camp. When advance notice of
absence is given, make-ups will be offered in weeks where space is available. There
are no make-ups for no-shows and no carry-overs into the next season.

What is the refund policy?

 If your child cannot attend camp during the week in which he/she is registered and
PSCTA is notified (in writing, by email) no less than two weeks before the camp week
begins, the amount paid will become a camp credit for another session in 2013 or
2014. There will be NO REFUNDS for any reason.

Can I stay with my child on the court?

 Parents are not permitted on the courts during camp. In order to have a positive camp
experience, it is important that your child take direction from our instructors and work in
a group environment. This can only be achieved if parents are not present on the court.
 
Parents are welcome to stay.
