Looking forward to the future, the question is what can we do to make tennis better in this country. Tennis in Canada is going through a golden period with popularity up due to the great performances of our international level players and the desire to play the sport  as a result of the restrictions of Covid. This growing interest in the sport provides Canada an opportunity to implement a refined infrastructure and policies which will ensure the on-going growth of the sport.

This outline of a system for developing soccer is one which certainly can serve all of us in going forward. Please give this excellent article by Frederick Duchesneau a read.
