Help
Some parents have been helping to pick the balls up through out their child's sessions. THANK YOU. This is most welcome and a big help, enabling the participants to hit more tennis balls.
 
SESSION BEST PRACTICE
Arrive 5-10 mins early to coaching session if possible for a quick warm up and then stay 5 or 10min for a quick hit afterwards. All participants have been given a small home work assignment i.e. each day serve 10 times into trampoline, wall, garage door, fence, old sheet or blanket hung from clothes line. Check grip [Hammer check, continental], trophy position [elbow high], toe at net post, hit ball above head and turn palm away after contact. [NO EXCUSE FOR NO PRACTICE]
This will GREATLY benefit skill acquisition and retention. Tennis coaching provides a framework in which to practice and make analysis. It enhances knowledge to make practice smart, informed, efficient and to remove the frustration of the unknown.
 
Curriculum
Occasionally I have requests or inquiries regarding specific coaching topics. Each year I try to write a comprehensive inclusive program covering a wide variety of tennis content. Hence, each week is varied and each term has a different focus. This is done to maintain participants enthusiasm and to keep the program fresh and focused. In each session any over-riding technical concerns [eg. grip] will be addressed. Please don’t hesitate to voice your preference or interest.
 
Rules link
In the recent past the wet day program has revealed a huge void in the knowledge of the rules, scoring and etiquette of tennis. Please see web site below for full details. Watching tennis on TV or even some of the tennis specific video games available can also help. Visit  "http://www.tennisaustralia.com.au" and follow the rules links.

Please contact me [0417517959] if in doubt as to any given session. A decision will be made 1.30-2.30pm. A message will be left on my mobile with all details. One make up session is available per participant per term [, heat,etc]. This includes wet day sessions.  The above policy is viable but I always try to be as flexible as circumstances allow. Please don’t assume I know what school, grade and or activities your child may be involved in.
