Spring 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 ration 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:
Learn the basics (Age 3-4) This is an introduction to tennis. Here, we’ll help kids improve their balance, agility and co-ordination while teaching them about the sport we love. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s just getting to grips with the basics.
|Tuesday 4pm||Wednesday 4pm||Saturday 8.15am|
Serve, rally and score (Age 5-8) Coaches will help children to further develop their co-ordination, balance and speed. We’ll introduce relaxed competition here too. Kids will learn the basic shots and will work at moving before and after hitting their shots.
|Monday 4pm||Tuesday 4pm||Wednesday 4pm||Thursday 4pm|
|Friday 4pm||Saturday 9am||Saturday 10am|
Serve, rally, score, basic tactics (Age 9) Time to throw in some tactics, problem-solving, and guides to sportsmanship and leadership. At this stage children will know all of the rules and will be starting to serve and return in matches.
|Monday 5pm||Tuesday 4pm||Wednesday 5pm|
|Thursday 5pm||Saturday 9am|
Test your Skills (age 10) It’s time for kids to play on full size courts. The focus will stay on learning technique but to a more advanced level. Different types of spins on shots will be learned here.
|Monday 6pm||Thursday 5pm||Friday 5pm||Saturday 10am|
Test your skills even further (Age 11+) Time to find your game. Playing on a full size court with the same size balls the pros use, kids will continue to explore different styles on the court, and start to choose their own whilst still being taught the correct technique where needed.
|Monday 6pm||Tuesday 6pm||Wednesday 5pm|
|Saturday 11am||Saturday 12pm|
