General Program Questions
How long is your winter session?
The winter session will run for eight (8) weeks. From January 2, 2017 - February 26, 2017. We schedule our weeks from Monday to Sunday, so your session will likely always start on Monday and end on a Sunday unless there is a major holiday that causes a conflict.
Additionally, we do not have any major holidays during this January session so all days will have their full eight (8) weeks.
What is your player/coach ratio?
For most classes, we maintain a 6:1:1 ratio. That is six (6) players to one (1) coach to one (1) court. In certain scenarios (i.e. Cardio Tennis, red court classes) one or more aspects of this ratio will be adjusted.
What is your relationship with Vinh Do & Elite 10S?
For 20 years, Vinh Do has been one of the most prominent and well-respected coaches in our area. Since leaving Fairfax Racquet in 2016, he and his team have continued their competitive programs at George Mason University under the banner of Elite 10S. Elite 10S' competitive pathway presents a strong potential compliment to Courtplay Athletics' junior program structure and vice versa.
During the winter of 2017, we will be providing Elite 10S with indoor courts during the winter time and they will provide us with access to outdoor courts at George Mason university during the spring and summer. Additionally, we will be looking for opportunities to integrate our classes to determine if we can make our programs and coaching philosophies fit.
Note: To maintain continuity of process, all registrations for both Elite 10S and Courtplay Athletics programming will be processed through Courtplay Athletics online club management software.

Will there be special member pricing for Courtplay Athletics programs at BRSC?
Currently, Burke members are paying an average of $24 p/ hour for group classes held at BRSC. For all active BRSC Tennis members, we will match that price point during our inaugural session. Once the dust settles on this integration we will announce a more traditional member/non- member pricing structure.
Additionally, only BRSC members will be able to reserve court time at the club and will recieve special promotions, discounts & other benefits throughout the season.
What is your overall cost structure?
For this opening session, roughly 90% of our classes are based on a flat cost of $26 p/hour. We found that this was the most efficient way to navigate the merger of various programs while taking care of all Burke & Courtplay clientele and meeting our fiscal responsibilities.

Junior Program Inquiries
Where does my child go?
Already enrolled at Burke?
Use this chart as a guide to help you determine where you should enroll in January!
Will my child always have the same coach?
At Courtplay Athletics, we truly believe that the best approach to teaching comes from a team approach. Our pathway is organized in such a way that coaches are able to be trained in the specific curriculum for each level of the program.
That being said, we recognize that continuity of instructor is a major key to the success your child's learning experience. Coaches will be assigned specific days and classes and barring some unforeseen circumstance will remain on that class for the duration of the session.
How will you handle make-ups?
Make-ups are offered as a courtesy only to members of Burke racquet & Swim Club. Please see below for other considerations:
Adult Program Inquiries
Will there be any changes to my contract time?
Contracts are paid on an annual basis. We do not anticipate needing to disrupt contract for the remainder of the 2016-17 season. However, if a need should arise we will reach out to the contract holder directly.
How is your Cardio Tennis different?
Cardio Tennis, As it was intended, is an internationally branded product of the Tennis Industry Association. It is its own brand just like Zumba, Crossfit or Soul Cycle. Both of our founders are international representatives of the brand and are excited to bring that product to BRSC. Cardio Tennis is traditionally a 50 - 60 minute class and includes a proper warm up, cardio segment & cool down. Heart Rate monitors, transition balls and music are used to create a safe, fun and social atmosphere for all participants.
You can learn more about Cardio Tennis by visiting cardiotennis.courtplayathletics.com
How will flights work?
We have made a very concerted effort to minimize the amount of change happening within the adult program. Many of you are used to processes that have been in place for quite some time. We intend to learn those process and solicit your feedback about what could be done better before making any significant changes. For now flight registration will continue to take place on site at BRSC. Registration for flights will officially open up on January 2, 2017
