Teaching Youth to Be Fit, Be Well, Be Kind, Belong and HAVE FUN! at Kitsap Tennis and Athletic Center
About KTAC Youth Programs
At KTAC, our Youth Programs are central to our Mission as a Non-Profit Organization and as a Tennis and Athletic Center. It is imperative that we pass along our values for Fitness, Wellness, Sportsmanship, Community and FUN! by providing the example each generation sets for the next. Here at KTAC we accomplish this facet of our mission by crafting engaging, educational and exciting youth programming and striving to make our programs accessible to members and youth throughout our local communities.
Our Youth Programs provide frequent opportunities of youths to learn and participate in fitness, safety, recreational and social activities from tennis to swimming and water safety, and a full calendar of social events like our Halloween Carnival, monthly Kid’s Night Out events and more.
Kitsap Kid’s Learn to Swim
Kitsap Kid’s Learn to Swim is part of our Non-Profit outreach programming. This program invites first graders throughout the Central Kitsap School District to join us for 8 sessions of water safety and swim lessons here at KTAC. This program hosts over 500 kids from elementary schools across the district. With several hundred miles of coastline bordering Kitsap County, water safety is an essential skill for kids in our communities. This program is presented free of charge to all participants.

Held the second Saturday of each month from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm, Kids Night Out is a chance for all of our community youth age 7 and up to enjoy a night of fun at KTAC just for KIDS.
