Free Tennis Program Offered Daily At I.S. 211
Canarsie's I.S. 211, on East 100th Street and Avenue J, was chosen as one of the areas where trained coaches come every day to provide a comprehensive schedule of instruction, practice and play for all levels. Coach Basil Boyd is doing the officiating here and teaching youths the rudiments of the sport.
Scheduled for 3 p.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, Boyd says the program will run through June 26 and it includes tournaments, special trips, contests, and guidance programs. It also provides "loaner" tennis racquets and balls and group and individual instruction.
Boyd says parents must register their children in person. Community groups are also encouraged to attend, he says. For further information, visit www.nyjti.org.
