Next Generation: Red Ball (8 and under)
Players at this level are taking their first steps on a journey that could become their lifetime sport. The program is based on establishing the player’s foundations which they will build from while growing into a successful tennis player. This is where basic stroke production begins, focusing on ground strokes and the serve. We stress the importance of rallying with partners and players develop sufficient consistency to sustain longer rallies.
The program uses 75% slower tennis balls that bounce at a level proportionate to a child’s height to allow better and longer rallies, encouraging the development of all-court games, racquet skills, physical awareness and confidence.
The program is offered four days a week and players are encouraged to train a minimum of 2 days per week.
Student:Pro Ratio is kept at 4:1. This is a significantly better ratio than would be found in other programs, providing greater interaction between coaches and players while keeping it fun & focused.
