WOODSIDE W.R.A.P. PROGRAM
Woodside's W.R.A.P. – Woodside Racquet Advancement Program - uses grip colors to help push kids to a higher level of tennis! The program is designed similar to the belt colors used in martial arts programs. The 13 stages take a player through Woodside’s Junior Development Program beginning with an introductory white grip and ascending through an expert black grip. When a child wishes to test in hopes of advancing to the next level, they will have to pass on court and off court test demonstrating skills at that level. This program provides a path to skill development that rests in the hands of the child, which will captivate young players and motivate them to put forth their best effort.
