Half Term Camp Schedule

We believe in providing a constructive learning environment at all different stages of life to ensure everyone we teach continue to learn and grow, not just with their tennis skills but their approach to physical activity. We do this by ensuring we have a high ratio to qualified coaches with a range of backgrounds and by providing different opportunities for children and families to get involved – so whether it's training young people to improve their employability prospects by starting their coaching journey, children learning new skills so they become more comfortable in playing sport or parents improving their general fitness, we like to incorporate all of these extra opportunities to ensure we approach this from a holistic point of view.

Building Blocks for Better Play Emphasis is on building up fitness and fundamentals of playing sport.

We start the day with warming up and exploring/developing athletic competency. Fun exercises mainly looking at fundamentals such as agility, balance, coordination, and we also look at improving speed and stamina. 

Learn to PlayWhere we make the transition from warming up to sport specific development exercise.

This part of the day will progress into introducing basic to advance technical skills (depending on ability) 

 

Play to Learn – Games; emphasis on technique and playing engaging games

This is where we use the technical skills (and potentially introducing tactical elements) that they have learnt in the morning and play games to see how it could be used in games based around the sport.

 

Play to Learn – Competition; emphasis is on learning new rules (how to play) and tactical play

We start to learn rules within the sport through playing fun games and starting to cement key things they have learn throughout the day.
