Tennis Coaching

Coaching Programmes
JUNIOR PROGRAMMES
Court Kidz (ages 3-5)
Court Kidz_2

Court Kidz is a special pre-Hot Shots program designed to create the best start for 3 to 5-year-olds. Even before playing on a red court we want to ensure that children build skills and confidence. We want to ensure that kids start with active healthy lives so we have created a program to develop all the fundamental motor skills required. It’s all presented through fun and play but most importantly creates a great way to get started.

Hot Shots (ages 5-11)

Tennis Hot Shots is the national starter tennis program for New Zealand children. Modified Hot Shots equipment gives kids the opportunity to play an adult version of the game in an environment that suits them. Red, orange and green balls, smaller courts and shorter, lighter racquets allow kids to hit the same tempo as the pros, move around the court in the same way, and execute the same tactics.

Silver and Golds (ages 11-16)
indoor-courts

A full-size court with a fully pressurized ball is used, with our Giant stage. Players who have processed through the hotshot stages or beginner teenagers will play within the giant stage. A full-size court with a fully pressurized ball is used. At this age the social aspect is very important to ensure each person is comfortable and having a good time as well as learning the techniques and tactics that best suit their level and abilities.

School Holiday Programme

Albany Tennis Park school holiday programme is a fun one week (half-day) tennis programme, where kids make friends on the court and better their tennis abilities. We focus on maintaining the level of each child by putting them in a specific group based on their age and ability, each coach knows what they need to do to help the child succeed and on the last day of Holiday Camp (Friday) we run a mini-tournament round-robin style.
