The current Junior Racquetball program at PVAC has been running since 2000. It was started with Brian Dixon, Orlando Mayo, Jesse Rockowitz and Matt Santos. Originally the class had a few students and was done after school. It has grown to one of the largest Junior Racquetball classes in Californiia averaging 30-40 students per session.

The ages for the class go from 6-18 and it is for Boys and Girls. There are two sessions per year Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring (check Calendar for specific dates).It is $25 per session for members and $30 for non-members. During the Summer, there are Junior challenge courts from 11-2:00 every Saturday. These are usually supervised.
