CURRENT 7 AND 8 YEAR-OLDS

The beginner level will develop tennis skills by using shortened courts and low compression tennis (orange) balls to help players refine the fundamental skills. Players will practice Forehands, Backhands and Volleys with an emphasis on consistency through drills and simulated games. Serves, lobs and Overhead shots will be introduced and parent volunteers will be asked to help lead activities to continue to maximized repetitions through the use of small groups. Drills will progress from hitting coach feeds to cooperative "player-to-player" rallies.

The common themes emphasized throughout the session will be “Feet”, “Eyes” and “Attitude” which are the building blocks to success in tennis and all other sports.
