Court 16 Freshmen gain a gentle introduction to the sport through varied drills and games. Players will focus on the proper grip, body positioning, and swing path for each shot that will allow them to hit consistently over the net from within the service box. Players practice hitting from the ground, off cones, and over low nets to help build confidence.
Players will also begin rallying back and forth on the ground with their coach and classmates. Basic athletic and footwork skill development will be emphasized as well.
Freshman classes utilize foam tennis balls on a 27-foot or 36-foot court. Class capacity is four players.
