Northside Legacy Program is for kids ages 6-10 that are interested in tennis, health and wellness, track & field, and educational opportunities throughout the summer. Scholarships are available for all who need it!
Located at The V3 Sports Center: 701 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis, MN
$100 / 2 Week Session, but scholarships are available. No special gear is needed.
In ICT’s Northside Legacy Program, our dedicated and passionate coaches deliver weekly tennis lessons to students in the North Minneapolis area that do not have easy access to play tennis year round. InnerCity Tennis has a goal to be the leader in youth development through the game of tennis. Whether students have prior tennis experience or not, we encourage all who are interested to register for our classes!
We are glad to announce that we will be partnering with Youth & Families Determined to Succeed (YFDS) to deliver track & field as well as health and wellness training. YFDS has been serving the community for over 20 years and has impacted countless lives. The YFDS mission is to provide health, nutrition, and fitness programs to improve community health, in particular the lives of youth and families suffering from obesity and enhance youths’ wellbeing through life skills and athletic programs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What safety measures are in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19? Safety is the number one priority for our coaches. We have implemented policies that will limit the potential for any illness to spread. These policies include, but are not limited to:
- Participants will be required to use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the building
- Instructors will keep at least 6 feet of distance between students
- Instructors will wear masks when working in closer proximity with students
- Participants are encouraged to bring their own water bottles and/or snack
- All shared equipment will be wiped down between uses
Where do I park? Parking is available in the front of the V3 building located on the corner for Plymouth Ave N and Lyndale Ave.
Will snacks and water be provided? As a safety precaution, we will not provide snack or water this summer. Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottles. If a student will need a snack, he or she should bring it to the program, as one will not be provided.
Where should I enter the building? We will be using the ‘back entrance’ to the building, located just off of Aldrich Ave N. Note that this is a different entrance than we have used in the past if you have played with us at V3 in the past. We are using this entrance as a safety precaution to limit the interactions parents and guardians have with other patrons of the building.
When should I arrive? To decrease the number of interactions between different groups, we ask that you arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the start of your student’s class time.
Can I drop off my child and leave the facility? Yes, you may drop off your students for the program and pick them up at the conclusion of the practice. Parents may stay at the V3 Sports Center and use the coach area. We strongly encourage parents or guardians to wear masks whenever coming inside.
Does my student need to have his or her own racket? All necessary equipment will be provided for the students. If your student has his or her own racket 26 inches or less, he or she may bring it.
Is it difficult to get a scholarship? We do everything we can to make tennis accessible for all who want to play. We have scholarships available for all that need them. Click here to access the scholarship form, and a coach will contact you within two business days letting you know what scholarship has been applied to your account.
How is the program funded? This is made possible through the generosity of individual and corporate donors, foundation grants, and fees generated from our tennis facility.
