School Programs

The southern island is rich with enthusiastic junior tennis players and the addition of clay courts at Bear Mountain is a tremendous benefit to our tennis community. With this opportunity in mind, Bear Mountain would like to support and enhance the development of junior tennis in Victoria.

 Our vision is to develop the opportunity for select local school junior tennis teams to regularly train and play on clay at Bear Mountain during the indoor season at non-prime times, allowing them to develop their skills to compete more effectively on a provincial basis.

 Our goal is to create an environment at Bear Mountain that inspires competitive junior tennis development. The training session formats are set up by the schools attending coaches and supervisors and overseen by a member of the Bear Mountain TAG Concierge staff. Schools provide all their own equipment and are charged an hourly court time fee.
