The Junior Coaching Programme strands

There are three strands with some overlapping areas through a child's development.

You may have a player who is in a Club squad but who also trains with an Academy squad. You may have a player who is in a Development Squad but who hits up with the Club Squads. The Strength & Conditioning programme will be accessed by some of the Club Squad players.

Development squads

  • For entry level and social players
  • Players will be doing one session a week and entering internal and entry level competitions
  • The main aim is to get players playing to a social standard of play

Training squads

  • For players who have been identified as above average
  • We would expect players in the club squads to do two sessions per week
  • Players in this category may also wish to have individual coaching with the coaching team
  • They will be eligible to play for the Tennis Centre teams and will be playing in appropriate tournaments

Focused squads

  • For elite players
  • These players will be playing in teams and tournaments
  • Their training will be planned by the Head Coach and it will include Strength & Conditioning
