Let’s introduce our Coaches.
Head Coach Jourdyn
Jourdyn is a University student at McMaster and started out volunteering with the PTC when she was in high school at PDHS. Jourdyn has been coaching with us for the past 3 years. She has a passion for tennis and supporting young athletes develop skills and increase their confidence on and off the courts. We are happy to have Jourdyn leading our young athletes with our Group Lessons, Semi private and private lessons.
Dora has been playing tennis since the age of 5. Dora runs The Stefanovic Tennis Academy to help tennis players reach their potential. Teodora has always emphasized a strong coach-athlete relationship, and prioritizes the mental and physical growth of all academy members. She works with several high profile junior players, including Team Canada members in U12 & U14 divisions. We are thrilled that Dora will be coaching our Intermediate Adult programming and Intermediate/Advanced Jr. Lessons on Wednesdays alongside Jourdyn.
Maureen has been with the PTC since the beginning. She recently retired from PDHS as a Physical education teacher and head coach for the high school Tennis team. She coached Jourdyn and has been a mentor for so many young athletes in Paris on the courts. We look forward to having Maureen continue to support the growth of our young Jr. Athletes as well our Adult Beginner program.
Tom has had a passion for Tennis since he was a young boy. Joining the Club in its grass roots he quickly became an advocate for more tennis in our community. Tom brings such a positive inclusive energy to the courts that will not go unnoticed. He loves this sport as it is a sport that you can play for life. We are happy that Tom will be working with Jourdyn to support our Jr. programming as well our Adult Beginner programming.
Julie has been volunteering with the club early in its growth. She is a Fitness Coach that supports the other coaches on and off the courts. She is a Yoga instructor and has a passion for moving your body in a way that uplifts you and supports your mental and physical health. We look forward to having Julie support our Adult Fitness and Beginner programming together with Tom.
