Kids Hot Shots Group Lessons

The Vida Tennis Group Hot Shots kids tennis lessons are run in a fun, enthusiastic environment with emphasis on developing the fundamental motor skills for tennis and everyday life.

All children in group Hot Shots lessons will be guided by the My Vida Journey program which Vida Tennis have designed to help children through the learning tennis process. The program highlights the tennis pathway, and kids receive certificates along the way to mark their achievements. Once completed they can then take their “next steps” into competition, squads and more. There are two areas of the with the my Vida journey; Head Start Program and the my Progress Program.

 

 

Group sessions are energetic, high participation, with small class sizes to creating a great environment to fast track learning and individual development. As the players progress the emphasis is placed on tactical and technique awareness. Players will be placed in groups of similar age and standard and a racquet can be provided for the session if required.

 

Private Lessons


Individual private tennis lessons are coaches by qualified experience staff and session encompass all facets of the modern game. The four key areas of development are the primary focus; technical, tactical, mental and movement. Video analysis is a key component in private tennis lessons and there are different length lessons available (30, 60, 90 minutes) depending on the individual.

The Tech / Rep private program is Vida's number one program in technical development amongst juniors. Technique and Repetition are combined in a monitored environment to maximize improvement from a closed skill situation to an open skill. The program also helps the player understand how to best link technique development with tactical awareness. The program operates across three or four courts with an assigned coach on each court, whilst a Head Coach (floating) structures and monitors the progressions. This program is designed to fast track skill development. The Head Coach constantly gives video feedback to the individual and then the message is re-enforced by the assigned coach on the court. The program is essentially a private lesson with the added benefit on the floating head coach and video analysis. There are various length sessions and the program is available at the majority of Vida venues daily.

What is your tennis pathway?


Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome. Tennis does not have a clear pathway to achieve many aspiring tennis players’ goals. Weather your goal is the world stage or personal best, the Vida Pathways will give you an idea of where you currently are in your tennis life and where some of the directions can lead you. It also shows new families getting started into tennis where to start and how to get involved in the “game for life.
