Summer 2022 Junior Coaching Programme

Junior Coaching Programme at Putney LTC.

Tots to Green groups have a maximum ratio of 1 coach to 6 players. Yellow groups have a maximum ratio of 1 coach to 8 players. Each session incorporates technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects of the game. The programme is split into the following age groups:

Tots

Tots (Age 3-5) - The players will learn a variety of athletic skills as well as progressing to pushing the ball along the floor and hitting over a low net. The main focus will be on fun and enjoying the sport.

Tuesday 4pm Wednesday 4pm Thursday 4pm Saturday 8.15am

Reds

Red (Age 5-8) - Players will continue to develop their movement as well as sending and receiving skills. Their goal will be to rally in the red court starting with a ready position,  understanding the movement to the ball followed by their recovery after the shot. Players will also be taught the basics of starting a rally/point with a serve.
