Shot Champs Program (ages 6-10)
We teach the tennis skills to ‘play the game’
Shot Champs is designed to develop and improve the skills needed to play competition tennis at the club level – the success of which is shown by the number of juniors from this age group who play in our NEJTA Saturday morning junior competition.
Our award-winning junior coaching program runs afterschool, weekday and Sunday mornings at Eaglemont Tennis Club. Teaching the Tennis Australia Hot Shots philosophy to “rally, serve and score”, our Shot Champs Program provides the skills needed to truly ‘play the game’.
It also combines learning the tennis skills, with learning how to play the game – strategy, shot selection, singles and doubles play, and placement. We also combine cooperative and competitive tennis activities, while keeping it fun and at an appropriate level for the skill level of each player.
Shot Champs also include the basic developments of each shot and gradual progressions on forehand, backhand, serve, volley and smash. We also work hard to develop consistency, control and concentration. The use of lower compression balls in particular, means kids can progress with confidence.
