“I believe that sports, specifically, tennis, can raise a person’s self-esteem. Our goal is to bring out each person’s full potential, while patiently guiding and teaching them the sport of tennis. Having gone through many levels of tennis myself, I feel I can convey a patient teaching method best suited for all levels of play.” — David Mast, new varsity head coach at Calvert Hall High School
