This program is for players who are beginning to rally from 3/4 court, and should progress to a 4-6 ball rally with a partner. Players can start the point with a self fed ball. Proper fundamentals on the serve, groundstrokes, and volleys will be re-introduced, as well as the following:
Physical: warm up activities and point play situations continuing to focus on co-ordination, spacial awareness, movement patterns, and different footwork skills.
Psychological: being a good sport, fair play, co-operation, introduction to competition, and fun.
Tactical: consistency to outlast the opponent, recognizing strengths/weaknesses in themselves/opponents, and learning to start the point with a serve.
