ITS System Overview
The ITS System philosophy is based on the belief that the most practical and effective means of helping the young is by developing their character, health and welfare through sports.
Our youth must be prepared, trained and educated physically and mentally. A sound body houses a sound mind and spirit. Athletic competition builds strong leadership quality that is essential to good citizenship.
The ITS development policy is to create an environment that will build on existing level of skills that instill discipline, foster good habits and internalize proper values. Every student of the game will be encouraged to learn from experience, study, work and maintain good health. Their past will be considered as merely a stepping stone to future achievements and thus we emphasize on what is to be done in the "now".
Importance shall be given to the program's role in the "local community life". It aims to give a chance for local juniors to have quality tennis and sports education together with family education to the value of sports, children and family life. The program is structured wherein children may start as recreational juniors and finish as performance players and at the same time organized in an appropriate competitive structure for "interested" young athletes.
