DBC members and students:
Did you know that DBC offers coaching to it members? One of the charter goals of DBC is to introduce the game to beginners as well as promote it at all levels. In keeping with these goals DBC offers coaching for all levels of players from the uninitiated to the advanced.
The program is organized into four levels. Starting with learning basic skills such as holding the racket the program progresses through the full range of skills that will help you succeed on the court.
The coaching program is open to all age groups including children and adults. With five coaches and several assistant coaches the program offers the best student-to-coach ratio of any program in the metroplex and is also very affordable.
DBCs' coaching program is organized by quarters (Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sept, Oct-Dec) and costs only $70 per quarter. The April quarter starts this week so if your goal has been to improve your game you should give us a try.
Training is conducted every Saturday between 10:00 am and 11:30 am at Reverchon Recreation Center. Attached is the registration form.
