Capital Kids is a community outreach recreational program aimed at introducing tennis to youth. Fundraising, donations, and a minimal participant fee have enabled the program to continue this year. The program is delivered through the partnership of the Ontario Tennis Association, National Capital Tennis Association and the City of Ottawa. Youth ages 6 to 15 years old receive tennis lessons from certified coaches. The program includes 1-hour group lessons once a week for 4 weeks and 4-week sessions run throughout the season.
Registration is open to all eligible youth (6 to 15 years old) across the City, including Crystal Beach, Lakeview and other areas of Ottawa, and they need not be members of a tennis club. However, participants are encouraged to join their local tennis club, to further grow their tennis skills.
This program is a major effort to popularise tennis amongst youth in Ottawa.
