North Ridge Racket and Paddle ITT Red Ball Program - Session 1

ITT Fall Red Ball Program (Ages 6-8)

We provide a self sufficient learning environment for the players. Players can expect rallies and games on the first day in a court space of their own for most of the class. Players will reach competency levels at their own unique level of growth. Lessons are taught to players through progressions. 

What to expect:

Warm up 


  • Instructors lead players to physically prepare for the class
  • Throw/Track/Catch/Coordination: Players can improve coordination by tossing the ball back and forth while side-shuffling along a line. Various actions are performed to keep the activity challenging.
  • Tag Games: allow players to warm-up and introduce an element of competition.
  • Obstacles course: agility courses with cones and ladders keeps the kids engaged in dynamic movements we will use on the court along strategic movement patterns. 

Progressive order development 

Players will start slow to fast, simple to complex, close to far, static to dynamic and easy to difficult 

Game based situations 

Players will use scoring for games and keep track independently using systematic objectives. Players will learn to score real match points to prepare them towards match play within weeks! 

Technical development 

Players will be introduced to our method of specialized feeding drills to teach multi-directional tennis movement, focus on what we call the forward and backwards V. (i.e. moving back and forward for the ball in a diagonal manner​) 


The players will have an opportunity to play matches each week. We will have monthly tournaments for the kids to participate in.
