What is RacketeersTennis?
RacketeersTennis is tennis lessons for primary schools and is a Sporting Dreams School Sports Program. A fun and exciting way for children from EYRS to Year 6 to learn how to play Tennis.
What to Expect?
Our expert instructor will come into your school with all the rackets, nets, tennis balls and also foam tennis balls for any indoor lessons. Children will enjoy taking part in age appropriate fun tennis games, activities and competitions and we structure and organise the lessons to allow children lots of opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding on how to play tennis.
Our target is for each child to drop, swing, hit and catch a tennis ball 200 to 300 times in the space of 30minutes. This allows children to do some speedy learning and to develop the key motor skills including coordination, balance, timing, throwing, catching and hitting a ball with a racket.
What Skills do the Children Develop?
Children will play fun orientated games whilst learning and developing the following tennis skills:
- Throwing and catching skills
- How to bowl / throw / hit underarm and overarm with and without a racket
- How to score points
- How to serve underarm for KS1 & KS2, and also how to serve overarm for KS2
- How to hit various shots (Depending on their age and ability). Children will learn;
-Forehand shot (KS1 & KS2)
-Backhand shot (KS1 & KS2)
-Drop shot (KS1 & KS2)
-Lob shot (KS2)
-Volley return (KS2)
-Half volley return (KS2)
KS1 in general play fun orientated games in which they subconsciously develop their skills, whereas KS2 (usually Year 5 & 6) can start to think consciously about their actions and techniques to enable them to complete a skill.
Children develop many transferable skills such as:
- Developing & Improving Reaction Times
- Developing Strength
- Improving Self-Esteem & Confidence
- Developing Team Work and Cooperation
- Learning to be a good sports person and winning with dignity
Our approach to teaching children:
If you haven’t already, please take a look at our about us page, our history, and our foundations, where you can read a little about our coaching methods, our approach and our use of discipline. These are vitally important to create and maintain a fun, safe and efficient learning environment for the children.
Our instructors approach to teaching all activities is firm but fair and in a fun way. We always say to the children that ‘we want you to have an amazing time but if you have poor listening skills then you will have a poor lesson, but if you have amazing listening skills then you will have an amazing lesson’.
Like all of our school sports programs, we try our very best to get the balance right between making lessons fun whilst maintaining good child behaviour management.
