Junior Coaching Classes

Junior coaching session structure - Development and Performance players

At All Set Tennis we endeavour to place your child into a junior coaching session that is relative to their tennis experience or ability. Therefore, we have created ‘development’ and ‘performance’ coaching sessions to ensure your child is training with players at a similar stage in their development. To understand whether your child should attend a development or performance session, we have defined what constitutes a development or performance player below. If you are still unsure of what session is suitable for your child please email us to ask our professional opinion. 

Please note - all sessions will be restricted in capacity to maximise the learning and experience of each participant.

Development players: 

A Player who is inexperienced in playing Tennis, or on the particular ball colour they have progressed onto (e.g. transitioning onto Mini Orange from Mini Red). The player may not be able to demonstrate knowledge/understanding of tennis shots or tactics.  A development player could simply play for fun or use this stage to springboard onto the performance stage of their chosen ball colour. 

Performance players: 

Performance players are those who have developed and mastered skills learned at the development stage. The performance player is required to  have spent at least two blocks on the development stage before transitioning onto the performance stage (e.g two blocks on Mini Orange development before transitioning onto Mini Orange Performance).  A performance player should be able to demonstrate understanding of all tennis shots, and have some tactical awarenesses as to why they would play a certain shot. The performance player should be able, but not obliged, to play in competitions at local level.  At this stage, the performance player must be aiming to progress onto the next ball colour. 

 

With this new structure in place, our Junior Tennis Programme will be split into 9 Categories.

  • Mini Tots (3-5 years old)
  • Mini Red Development  (5-8 years old)
  • Mini Red Performance  (5-8 years old)
  • Mini Orange Development (8-9 years old)
  • Mini Orange Performance (8-9 years old) - No current offering for this class due to player progressions. 
  • Mini Green Development (around 10 years old)
  • Mini Green Performance (around 10 years old)
  • Yellow Ball Junior Development (11 years +)
  • Yellow Ball Junior Performance (11 years +)
     

2020 August / October Programme - Lomond Park Tennis Club (EH5 3JR)

(17th August -23rd October) - 10 Weeks

Please note - if you are unsure of what session your child should participate in, please email us and we will promptly provide our professional opinion. 

 

Covid-19 restrictions in place at the sessions: 

Hand sanitiser will be available at the club and children will be expected to use this both before and immediately after their session.

Equipment: No rackets will be lent to players at any group session.  It is the responsibility of the player to bring his/her own racket. To reduce the risk of cross contamination, any water bottle brought by a player should be clearly named. 

Parents/Guardians: Only one parent is allowed to accompany their child to a group session. Parents should leave the club after dropping their child off at the session to prevent contact with members.

Player arrival: Players must arrive for their camp on time and only enter the courts at the start time of their session, i.e. on the hour. No players will be allowed to wait beside the courts before the start of their session or play on the practice wall.  

Toilet facilities: There will be no access to a toilet during group sessions. We encourage all children to go to the toilet before they attend the group sessions. This situation will be monitored by the club and progressed at the right time.

Prompt lesson finish/ pickup : To ensure that there is no crossover of contact between groups, and to reduce congestion at the club for all players as well as our club members, each session will finish promptly at the time specified. It is important that all children are collected on time as there is no facility for the children to wait whilst the next session takes place.

Restricted groups: Group sizes will be significantly reduced to prevent contact between members and players. A waiting list will be formulated for those unable to reserve a place in the groups and if any cancelations occur those on the waiting list will be immediately notified. We are planning to ease our group number restrictions as the Covid-19 situation improves.
