Coaching Programs

Hot Shots:

This program develops a child’s fundamental motor skills hand-eye co ordination, balance, movement and confidence. The use of modified equipment including racquets, nets and lower compression balls makes the learning process easier, accelerating improvement and the child’s enjoyment of the game. Slower balls allow children to develop the most efficient technique as the balls bounce lower allowing them to make consistent contact at the appropriate height for their ability.
