Carlos Aguirre, Director of Tennis at April Sound Country Club in Montgomery, Texas, and Neal Cohrs, Assistant Tennis Professional, went back to school recently as guests at a local elementary school. The two were there to raise awareness about tennis and the 10-and-under tennis programs at April Sound but also to provide some fun for the kids.
Neal put his kinesiology background to use and put together a lesson plan about human movement and tennis that worked for all the kids from kindergarten through fourth grade.
The children had a great time, the teachers got a break from their daily routine and the club was able to get the kids excited about tennis and share information about their various tennis programs and summer camps. A real win/win for everyone and extra kudos to Carlos, who helped implement tennis into the elementary schools in 2011, making a difference in increasing young tennis players in the surrounding areas.
