Junior Competitive Training Center News

The first session of the Junior Competitive Training Center for 2003 is completed. The training center was held on Sundays at the Lobo Tennis Club. The program had 34 juniors from all areas of the Northern New Mexico section including Farmington, Los Alamos, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Belen, Los Lunas, and Rio Rancho. The Director is D’Wayne Begay, USPTA, and his assistant is Bruce Cottrell.

The objective was to run a highly organized, educational, and fun junior development program. This program had highly competitive adults and tennis pros who are nationally and/or sectionally ranked working with these juniors. Those who assisted were Fred Abbott, Cindy Young, Manola Colter, Matthew Barker, and Jeff Tonjes. The UNM Lobo men’s and women’s team players and coaches helped as well.

All juniors received an on-court video analysis, T-shirt, competitive notebook, K-Swiss bottle and towel. The program was sponsored by NNMTA, CTA, Gary and Susan Bender, Kent Waterman, and K-Swiss.

The next Junior Competitive Training Center program will start in August. If you are interested in having a junior attend the next Competitive Training Center Program, please call D’Wayne Begay at: 239-3500.
