Australian Open Level (1) –  RED BALL Program

Coed Ages 5-8(and up). This program focuses on developing fundamental motor skills needed to play tennis. The element of play is important for this age group.  At the SITC, we use games and drills advocated by the USTA to teach children basic hand eye coordination skills, ball tracking skills, and basic swing mechanics. By using age appropriate equipment, lighter and lower compression balls (foam ball, red ball), our students will experience success much more quickly than they would otherwise. This program primarily utilizes the 36 foot court size.
