2022 JUNIOR TENNIS TEAM LESSON PROGRAM

Teaching Methods

We use Tennis Canada Teaching Methods.  Co-operation and partner drills along with game situation training will keep participants active and eager to improve their play.  Participants will learn and develop fundamentals for singles and doubles play.  A fitness component will also be part of each practice.  This may include footwork drills, hand and foot coordination skills, warm up and cool down exercises, and team relays.  We will also use Progressive Tennis materials and equipment when appropriate to foster the learning of tennis and all of its components.

 

Participants will be divided by age and/or skill level.  Open to ages 5-17.
