Dear parents – We are looking forward to another fun season of Innis Arden tennis! The registration form for the 2015 summer tennis program is attached. Please feel free to forward to any friends that might be interested – there is also a copy on the Innis Arden website. We will have brand new tennis courts as they are being resurfaced at the beginning of June and we have 3 great new coaches to introduce to the community.
Alex Casper is a junior media and communications major at UW Bothell. He played tennis at Meadowdale High School and at Azusa Pacific University and Shoreline Community College. Alex has worked as part-time tennis instructor for over 6 years and ran the tennis program for the City of Kirkland for the past 2 summers. He has trained with some of the best tennis instructors in the city and we are excited to have him as one of our coaches!
Alex will be joined by Assistant coaches Max Teer and Jelena Bojic. Max is a freshman at Washington State University. He was the Captain of the tennis team at Edmonds-Woodway and is current playing intramural tennis on the club team at WSU. Max has experience working with kids in both tennis and baseball and we look forward to having him working with our young tennis players at Innis Arden.
Jelena is a senior at Shorewood and will be attending the University of Washington in the fall. Jelena has played tennis since she was 5 years old, is Captain of the team at Shorewood and also plays at Klahaya in the summer. We are excited to have her on board at Innis Arden.
We are also very fortunate to have our very own IA Mom and USTA instructor Heather Falkin helping train our coaches and develop our tennis program at Innis Arden. She is volunteering her time and expertise – a huge thank you to Heather!
We have a lot of fun and great instruction planned for lessons and tennis team and we look forward to having your kids continue to be part of the program in 2015. Please let me know if you have any questions and we hope to see your kids out on the courts.
