Spring 2019 Junior Programs

Competitive Academy

In the competitive academy players will develop physical literacy skills to move like an athlete, develop a solid technical foundation as well as understand basic tactical situations. Players progress to the next academy based on their skill development and age. To practice what they learn, we organize competitive events where players can compete in a fun safe environment.

To register for any of the academy programs, contact Rufus Nel at 457-2346. We do not accept online registration for these programs.

Red Ball Academy 5 - 7 years  

The key outcome of this program is developing an athlete first and then the tennis player. There is a strong focus on developing coordination skills, physical literacy skills and understanding how to control the racket and ball through basic technical development.
Orange Ball Academy 6 - 8 years 

Playing on a ¾ court players further develop their reception and projection skills through an understanding of ball controls, movement, and court awareness.

Green Ball Academy 7 - 9 years  

Players learn advanced technique and understanding of the 5 game situations to be able to transition confidently from ¾ court orange ball to full-court green ball.

Performance Academy  

Committed to training to compete provincially and nationally players in the performance academy develop their technical, physical, and psychological skills to be able to better execute tactical decisions to take their game to the next level. A yearly plan is designed for the performance players to help them with periodization to maximize performance to coincide with important competitions.
