Aimed at children aged 2-12 years old, it uses modified courts, racquets and balls to keep things fun and easy. The Junior Tennis Coaching Program is based on a “learning through play” philosophy where children serve, rally and score. At the YMCA our experienced coaching team will run a tailored program designed to develop each child’s game in a fun, encouraging and social environment.
Tennis Hot Shots is split into four stages;
Hot Shots Blue (2 to 4 years): 30 minute classes, 4:1 Player to Coach Ratio
Hot Shots Red (5 to 7 years): 30 minute classes, 6:1 Player to Coach Ratio
Hot Shots Orange (8 to 10 years): 60 minute classes, 6:1 Player to Coach Ratio
Hot Shots Green (11 to 12 years): 60 minute classes, 6:1 Player to Coach Ratio
Our Hot Shots Group Lessons cater to all students from beginner to intermediate player standards aged 3 to 12 years old. In these lessons students use low-compression balls and a modified court to begin to explore the fundamental and perceptual motor skills used in tennis. As the children progress and start to enjoy learning tennis skills, emphasis moves to learning to score and playing the game of tennis.
These sessions begin with 30 minute sessions at the Blue and Red stages with a maximum ratio of 4 players per coach. Orange and Green classes run for 60 minutes with a maximum ratio of 6 players per coach. Players aged 12 years and above will have the option of joining Junior Group Tennis Lessons or Squad Lessons. Private Lessons are also available to Hot Shots players of all ages for those wishing to fast track their development.
