Groups are organised into age, ability and available times.  The target coach to player ratio for all group levels is 1: ≤ 5.

(Groups will only exceed ratio of 1 coach to 6 players in exceptional circumstances).

 

Rain/inclement weather procedure:

If it is raining or the courts are too wet to play on:

-The lesson will be called off and there will be an extra lesson in the “catch up weeks” in late term 3.

- If a lesson is called off multiple times then parents will be informed via Facebook page if an indoor training alternative will be planned.

- if we cannot provide indoor alternative training on that day, then the lesson will be called off, but players will be given the option to attend another suitable group on another day. Parents must email Hugo to organise this.

-All the wet-weather updates will be posted on the TKHP FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/tekuratennis/ a minimum of 1 hour before the lesson is due to start. 

PRICES:

The prices for the various coaching options below are for Te Kura Hagley Park (TKHP) members.

Non-members can join the club for the winter for $70.00 (rather than paying $5.00 court fees per group session).

Coaching Options

OPTION 1: TKHP Winter Hot Shots  RED, ORANGE, GREEN.

Tennis Hot Shots (THS) is specifically designed to give young juniors the best possible foundations to enjoy and succeed in tennis in the years to come. It's aimed at juniors with limited or no full-court match experience.

The key aspects of THS are the use of modified court sizes and equipment and the “learning through play” philosophy. Scaled equipment allows our THS coaches to teach kids from a young age how to play the real game of tennis: They learn to rally, compete and score points.

The reduced speed, bounce-height and court length is more manageable, which assists the development of correct technique and tactics.

The general guide for choosing the THS colour is:

Red (5-7 yrs), Orange (7-9 yrs), Green (9+). However, prior experience and developmental readiness will determine what the ideal colour is. If in doubt, the coach will estimate the appropriate level to begin with, and then adjust groups during the programme if necessary.

TK Winter Hot Shots Details:

Red + Orange: 45 min sessions, 3:45 – 4:30pm on weekdays.

Days and times are subject to compatibility with each player's schedule & bookings.

1 session per week $190.00 for TKHP members

Green: 60 min sessions, Various start times available from 3:30pm on weekdays. Days and times are subject to compatibility with each player's schedule & bookings.

1 session per week $225.00 for TKHP members

2 sessions per week or 2 family members $385.00 for TKHP members

 

OPTION 2: TKHP Emerging Squads.

This programme is an opportunity for juniors to capitalize on the progress they have made over the Summer season.

Emerging Squad  members will fine tune their technique and their tactical sense to get a head start on their competitors next Summer.

Entry level Emerging Squad players are generally 9 yrs or older, have completed a season of THS Green (and may have taken part in Green ball hot shots matchplay) so they are ready for full-court, yellow ball tennis.

Advanced Emerging Squads will have interclub experience, and are aiming for a higher level next season. Strong interclub players who cannot fit 90 min tournament squad sessions into their winter schedule will also be catered for in advanced Emerging Squads.

Details:

60 minute sessions, Probable start times are 4:30 or 530pm weekdays.   Days and times are subject to compatibility with each player's schedule.

1 session per week $225.00 for TKHP members

2 sessions per week or 2 family members $385.00 for TKHP members

 

OPTION 3: TKHP Tournament Squads.

I encourage all juniors who want to lift their game and are aiming to compete in regional tournaments, to enrol in a TK Tournament Squad. The comprehensive 90 minute sessions will be challenging and rewarding. Coaching will cover advanced technique, tactics, physical fitness and the mental game.

Details:  90 minute sessions.

Probable start times are 4:30 or 530pm weekdays.

Days and times are subject to compatibility with each player's schedule.

1 session per week = $290.00 for TKHP members

2 sessions per week or 2 family members $480 for TKHP members
