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 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 Head Coach Simon (0449 090 238) and he will be more than happy to chat to you regarding your child’s placement. **Term 4 2019 starts from Thursday 17th October 2019 and runs for 8 weeks except for Public Holidays**
