Level: Beginner-Advanced Beginner, Ball Type: Foam, Orange, and Green Dot. Court Size: 60'
Bronze 8-11 is the beginning - advanced beginning level of the Portland Tennis Center's Junior Development Pathway for older Elementary School athletes ages 8-11. This class is a ton of fun, with a lot of athletic movement, and high energy instruction from our USPTA/USPTR Certified Tennis Professionals.
This class runs in monthly sessions and meets twice a week on Monday & Wednesday and is specifically designed for students to learn the game of tennis through simplified stroke demonstrations, athletic footwork, hand eye coordination drills, fun games and lots of noncompetitive tennis play to develop the entire athlete.
Players will learn the fundamentals of tennis such as Serve, Forehand, Backhand, Volleys, Overhead, Tennis rules and scoring, Court lines/Court areas and basic rallying skills. As players develop, coaches will separate beginners from advanced beginners to introduce basic singles and doubles positioning, return of serve, more movement and stroke development to prepare each player for Silver 1 that will include recreational match play. Player graduation is approximately 6-12 months and Pro approval is REQUIRED to move to the next level of development.
Player pathway development criteria is posted online at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/article/683002 or posted in the PTC lobby.?
