About This Activity

We Will Be Using A Combo Of ORANGE/GREEN DOT BALLS Depending On The Skill Level Of The Group... The ORANGE BALL allows young players to play on a 60' court with the same rules as those used on a regulation court. Playing the “real” game will promote the development of fundamentals required in game situations. For 7+ year olds that have gained skills from RED BALL play. The ratio of length to width is basically the same as a full sized court is to an adult. As the court and equipment dimensions are scaled down, young players are able to develop an all-court game style... ORANGE BALL tennis uses low-compression balls that facilitate this tactical development. The balls are easier to control and don’t bounce as lively as a YELLOW BALL. On these courts players use 23-25 inch rackets (depending on player size) which gives better racquet and ball control. The modified equipment also assists with development of good mechanics. ORANGE BALL instruction is a series of game based drills, to develop players globally with a strong emphasis on fundamentals. This program will help coaches understand the critical tactical and technical fundamentals required to play the game effectively. The GREEN DOT BALL is for skilled players that have gone through either Intermediate/Advanced Orange Ball classes or have shown the ability to play with the GREEN DOT and YELLOW BALLS. This is best suited to players ages 10 to 15 years of age... The class instruction is a series of game based drills, to develop players with a strong emphasis on fundamentals... There is a MAKE UP DAY for missed classes... Class & Make Up Dates: Sunday --> February 14, 21 & 28 March 6 & 13 MAKE-UP DATE --> March 20 Friday --> February 12, 19 & 26 March 4 & 11 MAKE-UP DATE --> March 18
