SAN BRUNO, Calif. --- To kick off the 2011 West Coast Conference Tennis Championships, presented by the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, WCC men's and women's tennis players and coaches hosted the WCC Youth Tennis Festival, in partnership with Harper for Kids, on Wednesday, April 20 at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, CA.
The festival was an hour-long community service event that taught kids everything from basic tennis skills to principles taught at the Coach Wooden for Kids Inch and Miles Sportsmanship Festivals, administered by Harper for Kids, such as hard work, 100% effort, sportsmanship and cooperation.

West Coast Conference
The West Coast Conference was formed in 1952 and has evolved and grown to become a nationally recognized and competitive force in Division I intercollegiate athletics, with 13 conference-sponsored sports: baseball, men's and women's basketball, women's crew, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's golf, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's tennis and women's volleyball. The WCC is characterized by the stability of its membership - only two conferences have been together longer - and its unique emphasis on combining excellence in athletics with excellence in academics.
