“GREEN TENNIS” tennis program designed for 9+ year old kids and enables them to learn tennis through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills. All lessons are 2 hour long and include tennis and fitness.

There is 3 stages in this program: “FUNdamentals stream”, “Developing stream” and “Performance stream”

FUNdamentlas stream

Kids learn basics of tennis such as forehand, backhand, volleys, serve and footwork. Players play 2 hours a week in a group of 6 kids. Coaches use basic teaching tools like cones, vertical and horizontal targets.

Developing stream

Players play 4-6  hours a week in a group of 6 kids. Coaches use more advanced teaching aids like FitLight, skipping ropes, vertical and horizontal targets, medicine and swiss balls. Kids have more time to work on speed, agility, flexibility, balance, tactics and technique. Learning process is 3 times faster then in a recreational stream. Private lessons, house league and tournaments recommended.

Performance stream

Future professional and college players preparation stage. Players play 8-10  hours a week in a group of 6 kids. Coaches use more advanced teaching aids like FitLight, ball machines, agility ladders, skipping ropes, vertical and horizontal targets, medicine and swiss balls. Fitness classes introduced. Kids have more time to work on speed, agility, flexibility, balance, tactics and technique. Learning process is 3 times faster then in a recreational stream. Private lessons, house league and tournaments recommended.

In all streams players play on the full court, use green balls and regular 27 inch rackets. The focus is about making it as much fun as possible during tennis lessons. Game-based approach is used.

This is a critical stage of development for the athlete/tennis player, as it sets the foundation for learning to be a competitive junior. In addition, this stage can determine if an athlete has an opportunity to compete at a high international level in the future. This is the stage where “you make or break an athlete” by doing the right things at the right time of the athlete’s development.

The development of perception skills is fundamental to long term success in the sport. Players, parents and coaches can work on these skills both on and off the court.
