This class is specifically to guide our young players who have begun USTA tournament competition in the orange ball distinction. Students in this group will learn how to strategically use their skill set to problem solve match situations. Our teaching staff we teach the students to be analytical and to understand how tournament stressors influence their performance.
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.
