Youth Coaching & Camps

Youth Tennis is a growing sport on the Sunshine Coast in BC and the Suncoast Racquet Club is happy to be part of a growing program of tennis development for youth as young as 6 years of age.

As a Community Club it’s important we offer our SunCoast BC youth the opportunity to discover the game of tennis or improve their skills – they’re the future!

ALL coaching and camps are organized by age and by ability ie beginners, improvers, intermediates.  We try to reach as many school age children as possible each summer, ahead of their summer break as they really do benefit hugely from these sessions and their confidence grows enormously.

Youth Development 

We also have two support Funds to help families financially with tennis coaching for young tennis players who our coach has assessed and believes they have real potential to go far with the game.  These are - the SRC Youth Fund and the Paul Meyer Endowment Fund.

To find out more about our either of these Funds - either for donations to the fund or how to apply for funds - please email our Club Chair, Tamara F. Jacobsen, at [email protected] and she will guide you through the process.
