Warm Up: Partner-based activities that focus on control and theme of the day.
Skill Development: Is broken into two specific areas of focus, Athletic and Tennis. Athletic, covers tennis-specific movement. ABC’s (agility, balance, coordination), speed, strength and advanced tossing/throwing/catching activities. Tennis, focuses on developing all five ball controls (direction, height, depth, speed, spin) and all phases of movement.
Games: Skills learned from practices will be applied to tactical situations during games.
Character: Practices have a character theme that can apply to tennis and life because at RippnerTennis we are not just developing champions on the court but champions in life.
Community: At RippnerTennis we are looking to grow a lasting community with relationships and memories that last a lifetime. During this time we are looking to enforce the topics covered in class, and make a connection with each and every player about their experiences during the class.
Based on the age of the Players and number of Players enrolled, RippnerTennis maintains a safe ratio of Coaches to Players to ensure a quality, inspirational, and safe experience for the all Players.
