Advantage Girls Transition Program

Vida Tennis presents the next chapter of the Advantage Girls Program, the Advantage Girls Transition Program in Term 3 2019.

The Advantage Girls Transition Program is designed to provide an opportunity for young female adults to continue their tennis journey, no matter what their goals are. The 5 weeks will get the young women to play tennis, get coach education to step into the workforce if they want to, build on their fitness and meet other like-minded females to help lead, mentor and guide them on their pathway. 

What is the Advantage Girls Transition Program?

This program will be for young women aged between 18-25 years old and the key focuses of this program are

  • Practice regularly in a positive, fun encouraging environment
  • Meet and connect with like-minded females
  • Coach Education sessions so that you can see if you want to be a tennis coach. You may get into the coaching industry short term while studying or playing or long term becoming a career coach.
  • Have work experience opportunities so that you can feel confident coaching at your local club
  • Continue to be involved in tennis without the pressure of what it will become
  • Have a cost-effective way to stay involved in tennis
