INTRODUCING PERFORMANCE
 
When our players arrive at this stage, they have been sharpening their strokes, their agility, flexibility, balance and coordination. Now, they learn how to position themselves properly in the court (full size) and play points with a purpose, building and closing the points.
 
During this stage, players will learn how to set up goals for daily training and matches, manage emotions through mindfulness and analyze matches to identify what worked well and what were mistakes.
 
Players should play tournaments regularly and from 13 year old participate in ITF tournaments. Coaches will be assigned for local, regional and international tournaments where participation is highly recommended.
