Competencies

Each child will have a set of competencies to tick off throughout the term that will be achieved through our Hot Shots lesson plans provided by our professional coaches. Parents will have access to our Hot Shot shared folder to print off a competency list for each stage.

If the coach thinks your child has progressed well through the competencies in their stage, they will be awarded a certificate and be able to move up to the next level. No worries if not! Your child will have another chance in the next term to have another crack at it.

Make-up/wet weather plan

If the session has to be called off due to weather or if the player or coach cannot make the session due to sickness or an emergency, we have a plan in place.

  • 1-2 missed squads: We will offer a 1-hour indoor make-up session at the Renouf Tennis Centre at the end of each term.
  • 3-4 missed squads: We will offer the 1-hour make-up session at the Renouf Tennis Centre at the end of the term and also a 30-minute individual lesson with the coach.

There will be no refunds for missed sessions.

Sign up

Once you have secured your spot in our Hot Shots programme, you have signed up for the full 10-week term. Each lesson progresses to the next and we expect players who have signed up to try their best to commit to making every week. If your child is sick or away, please contact your Hot Shots coach.
