Ages 5 - 8 year old Beginner Tennis Class with Coach Shelley Chambers
Each student will need their own tennis racquet
Hand-eye coordination drills, racquet control, and ball tracking skills are emphasized during this one hour weekly tennis class. A new tennis stroke is introduced weekly, the Forehand, the Backhand, the Volley, the Serve, and the names of each tennis point. Tennis games are played to reinforce learning. Tennis homework includes dribbling, or bouncing the ball down 25 times, and turning the racquet over, and bouncing the ball UP 25 times on the racquet face. Finding a backboard, or a wall, at home is useful for practicing "bounce-HIT" and timing.
Dress your tennis student for an athletic experience. Comfortable clothing for an athletic experience. Wear a hat, or a visor for sun protection. Students can bring along a bottle of water, or their favorite sports beverage.
If your student misses a tennis class due to illness or travel, you have the opportunity to attend another A.T.A. tennis lesson location for a "make up" class. Send an e-mail to the A.T.A. Office requesting a make up on a specific date, and the location that you want your student to attend.
Consider attending this same 5-8 Year Old class on Saturday mornings, at Andersen Jr High, with Coach Sue, at 9:00 am, discounts available when attending twice a week
