Staff Spotlight - Carlos Jaik

With the increased popularity in private tennis lessons at North Star, we're excited to have Carlos Jaik join the North Star staff to work alongside Mike Storms. Carlos comes to North Star from Colima in Mexico. He's a USPTA certified tennis pro and he's very involved in tennis in Mexico, where he is the secretary of the tennis association in his home state. He is the coordinator of tennis coaches in Colima and also teaches tennis lessons.

Carlos has spent quite a bit of time coaching and training in the US as well. He instructed tennis for six summers at a camp in New York. He also spent last summer training and teaching at a club in California. We're excited to have Carlos teaching private tennis lessons this summer!
