Class Policy – Each tennis session includes a series of four lessons.  Tennis lessons are continuous.  At the end of the fourth lesson, your player will be automatically registered into the next series of four lessons unless you cancel (see Lesson Cancellation Policy below.)

Group lesson Policy – Each group session includes a series of four lessons.  The reason why I ask for a four lesson commitment is that it may take four lessons for your player to become comfortable with the equipment, class format, skills, drills and games and my staff and me.

Covid Policy – Players will need to bring a mask and a filled water bottle and I will provide the racquet (if needed), hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, balls and all other tennis equipment.  I am fully vaccinated and teach in a mask.   Players will get their own ball pick-up tube during class and the class is assigned a designated basket of balls.  I call it “touchless” tennis since they should not be touching many balls.

Payment Policy – Payment for the series of four classes is due on the first day of the four lesson series. Cash or check (made out to Suzi Mills) accepted.  If paying in cash, please put the cash in an envelope with the player’s name on it.  I will e-mail you a receipt for cash payments.  Payments through PayPal (to is accepted, as well.

Lesson Cancellation Policy – You need to give me ten days notice that your child is no longer going to be enrolled in lessons.  That is a fair business practice and a consideration that you would give other instructors.  This allows me time to alter my court rental agreement with CSC and to adjust my staffing since there will be one less student.  It also gives me time to try to find a replacement player so that the other parents in a group lesson will not have to pay an additional fee for a semi-private lesson.

 Emergency Information Form: An emergency information form is required for every student taking tennis lessons.  If an accident were to occur, I need to be able to get medical help for your child.  If your e-mail or address changes, please complete a new form.

 Rain-Out Policy: If one of the classes in a series has to be cancelled due to rain, there is no charge, and your payment will go to the next class in the series.  I will notify you two hours before the lesson is scheduled whether it is cancelled.  If you do not hear from me that the lesson is cancelled, then the lesson is on.  You will be charged for any lesson that takes place (see also make-up lesson policy below). If we are rained out during the lesson, I will stay at the courts until your child is picked up.

 CV Junior Tennis Make-up Lesson Policy – To receive a make-up lesson, you need to give me 24 hours notice via email that your player is not coming to the lesson.  If the student is unable to come to one of the four scheduled lessons, then he or she has three months to make up their missed lesson by attending a make-up lesson in another (i.e., different) class.   If you give me less than 24 hours notice that you or your player won’t be in the lesson, you forfeit your make-up class.

 For example, if a student missed one class scheduled for four Mondays from 4:00-5:00, then they would be able to make up that lesson during another scheduled class on any other day and time than Monday from 4:00-5:00, within three months of the missed lesson. 

Players of Age 6 and Under – Players of age 6 and under in group lessons need to have an adult near the courts (not the parking lot) at all times.  Many times this child needs individual attention (e.g., to use the restroom, to blow their nose or get a band-aid).  My staff and I are not able to leave the other players in the class to give individualized attention to your young child.

Air Quality:

  • If the Air Quality Index is above 151, class is cancelled and you will not be charged.
  • If the AQI is below 151, then class will be held. We will discuss strategy, doubles players communication and job descriptions, sportsmanship and tennis rules in the shade.  We will have frequent water breaks.  Popsicles and misters will be available.

NOTE: As a courtesy to the other students in the class and me, please text or e-mail me if you or your child cannot attend the lesson.  I would greatly appreciate it so I can inform the other students, as well as make alternative lesson plans.
