FUNDAMENTALS

Tots learn the basics skills and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and sending and receiving skills. There are no specific Awards at this stage however there are skills and effort stickers which should be used to encourage the players.

RED, ORANGE AND GREEN

There are 4 consistent skill areas that the Red, Orange and Green Hot Shots players are tested on:

Rally: Learning and developing rallying skills

Serve: Learning and developing serving skills

Come to the net: Learning and developing movement forwards and volleying

Score and Compete: Learning the rules, how to score, how to compete and fair play

 

A player must complete all 4 skills to complete the award and move up a class, but will be awarded on their progress made each term with a certificate and sticker.

The difficulty level is progressed by advancing the players court position and number of shots they have to successfully complete. The difficulty level is represented by the number, the higher the number the more difficult the award i.e. RED 20 is harder than RED 5.

After completing the Green stage, our Hot Shots players will be ready to go on to enjoy the full game of tennis.
