ITP Tryouts: Review
On July 24, the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning hosted the Intensive Training Program tryouts. More than 100 players came to show us their tennis skills and passion! With smaller coach-to-student ratios and increased access to tennis, ITP bridges the gap between recreational community-based programs and high performance training. It is designed for current or past participants of NYJTL Community Tennis and ACES Afterschool Programs. This year’s team will be announced in the following weeks.
