QuickStart Pathway Builder

QuickStart Pathway Builder

Our QuickStart Pathway Builder is creating a self-sustaining tennis programming progression in 27 counties and 3 independent cities in central and southside Virginia for elementary and middle school-aged kids. We have devised a list of suggested programming options. The pathway includes programs for kids of all ages and skill levels, and emphasizes non-competitive play for kids 10 and under. For assistance in building a customized pathway in your community, please email: quickstartcentral@comcast.net.
