Junior Coaching Programs

Hotshots is a perfect way for younger children to develop gross motor skills and athleticism through the sport of tennis in a fun, yet structured environment. Your child will learn teamwork and how to cooperate and succeed in a small group dynamic. All Red classes run with a coach/player ratio of 1-4 and Orange and Green classes a ratio of 1:5

Our COMPETITIVE classes are for those children who have had previous experience of match play. If you are unsure which class would be suitable for your child, please call and we will be more than happy to chat to you regarding your child’s placement.

At the end of each term, we offer a JUNIOR CHALLENGE competition which is for players just starting out with competitive play and are a great opportunity to put into practice all your player is learning in their regular squad sessions in a fun and relaxed match play environment. All are welcome to enter.
