Junior Squad Pathway – Invite Only Option
A Tennis Canberra Squad Programs is an invite only program designed to centralise players who are starting to play junior competition tennis. Our coaches have identified that a squad player must be at a certain physical, mental & emotional standard to handle a squad based environment as the intensity of the squad sessions reflects the expected intensity of a tournament match.
Although this program is an invite only session, there are some cases where a squad sessions includes our junior program players. Not joining a squad does not mean that our open junior programs are in any means a lower standard, see the Tennis Canberra squad an additional option for your child as they have shown interest in taking their game to the next level.
Kids Tennis Programs
Our team understands that squad scheduling does not always suit families. For this reason those invited to a squad can consider choosing an open Junior Program or a squad program which is below the squad level. For example, an invited:
Junior Squad player can join Juniors Program (Level 3)
Development Squad Player can join a Junior TEENis Program (Level 4)
Competitive Squad Player can join a Junior TEENis Program (Level 4) or Development Squad (Level 4.5)
Those players who want to continue playing with their friends and siblings in the current program they are in we support this as playing sport with those they are comfortable with will increase the enjoyment of the sport.
