Training Sessions

After about 20-30 min drill practice shots with the machines, we’ll transition to all 6 courts to practice those shots in game play. Coach will observe & offer do’s & don’ts with proper technique during play. Intermediates in the am and Advanced in the afternoon. 24 players per 1 1/2 hr session.

1st Session – 9-10:30 a.m. – Intermediates
2nd Session – 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. – Intermediates
3rd Session – 12-1:30 p.m. – Advanced
4th Session – 1:30-3 p.m. – Advanced

Intermediate Lessons: Participants will learn new serving techniques, return strategies, net volleying techniques, lobs and 3rd & 5th shot drop for better and improved play!!!

Advanced Lessons: Volley and recovery drills, drop volleys, spin serves, advanced lobs techniques, drive ground strokes and 3rd shot drops and dink strategies!!!

We have a lot of beginner players and encourage them to sign up for the Intermediate session. I would not discourage anyone from signing up for the Advanced sessions however the beginner players should watch the sign up numbers and give the advanced and intermediate players a chance to sign up first. Likewise the advanced should do the same for the beginners for the intermediate sessions.
