LTA Youth Coaching Programme

Never held a racket?

No problem, our specially trained LTA Youth coaches will adapt to each individual, to help bring out their best in a safe, secure environment. All kids need to bring is their creative energy, because the programme is designed to grow as they do.

Smaller courts and softer balls develop into the real deal as they pick up all the skills and know-how they need.

It will take your youngster to the next level; you’ll see it in their confidence, their skills and even their concentration at school. Not to mention keeping them fit and active. Add some healthy competition to teach them about good sportsmanship (because we all have bad days) and you’ve got a set of skills for life.

LTA Youth has 6 stages

Start: 4-11 years - Introductory offer
Blue: 4-6 years - Learn the basics
Red: 6-8 years - Serve, rally and score
Orange: 8-9 years - Develop a rounded game
Green: 9-10 years - Test your skills
Yellow: 10+ years - Take your skills further

Don't Forget

Although we’ve assigned ages to each stage these are just a guide. We’ll always put kids in the relevant group based on their ability. In addition to the LTA Youth we also run parent & toddler, performance squads and school sessions withing our junior coaching programme.
