BLUE stage programme
Waimairi Tennis Club is excited to announce a Tennis Hot Shots Blue stage programme.
To provide children aged 3-5 years old with opportunities to explore the sport of tennis through play.
The 6 or 8 week programme covers tennis and generic sports skills, utilising physical literacy, and focusing on fundamental perceptual motor skills. Each session will be structured in a ‘circuit-style’ format, and will have a theme to the session.
Parent(s)/caregiver(s) are encouraged to participate in the sessions to make the environment comfortable for the child, and to help with the flowand practicality of activities.
Modified equipment and creative spaces are used in the programme relevant to the children’s stage of development.
Session themes include imagination journeys, counting and ‘abc’ activities. Activities of fundamental perceptual motor skills are designed to match the session themes.
Activities are based on moving, throwing, catching and striking.
Children experience the basics of tennis, including how to rally.
