Squads

Research has shown that players combining tactical practice with solid technical foundations maximize performance. Squad training is aimed at those players who want an edge over opponents and take their solid foundations into winning matches.
Red Junior Development Squad Training:
Is for red stage hot shot players who have selected tennis as the sport they wish to excel in. These players have a desire to play competition and this squad is designed to transition players into Easter Region Red inter-club based competition and round robin tournaments.
Duration: 60 minutes – 4 players.
Orange Junior Development Squad Training:
To transition players who demonstrate a high standard of skill acquisition, and focus into ‘match/competition’ ready players. This involves developing players far beyond stroke mechanics, but into players who think strategically, who adopt patterns of play according to the phase in each rally (attacking, defensive or neutral), learn to use the environmental conditions (wind, drizzle, sun) to their advantage, to ultimately participate in their first Club match representing their local club against other local clubs in the Eastern Region Club based orange competition, or play their first Tennis Victoria Tournament, in under 8, under 9 or under 10 age groups.
Duration: 60 minutes – 4 players.
Green  Junior Development Squad Training:

These sessions extend upon previous ground work and focus completely on rallying skills, change of direction, strategy, training principles, and the three overall components of being a competition / tournament player:

1) Build better weapons then your opponent.

3) Use you weapons consistently.

This is the additional learning platform players are invited to join, to ultimately participate in their first Club match representing their local club against other local clubs in the Eastern Region Club green ball based competition, or play their first Tennis Victoria Tournament, as well as take part in AJL (Association Junior League).

Duration: 90 minutes – 6-8 players.
