AFTER SCHOOL TENNIS PROGRAMS IN ORANGE COUNTY
Our after-school players are divided by level, not age. All sessions include drills, points and sets, consistency hitting drills, and on-court fitness. Players are welcome to attend 2-5 sessions weekly. Private lessons can be added to any program plan. It is our recommendation that all players should practice at least 5 hours a week to get the full benefit of a small group session or private lessons.
Class Times + Options: Training sessions run in 3-hour blocks at 3:00 – 6:00 pm (M-F), and 4:00 – 7:00 pm (M-TH). Players are allowed to attend the time slot that fits their schedule. Each session will be limited to 16 players per session. Missed sessions are not refunded, however, players may attend any day to redeem missed sessions.
Please review the categories below for more details:
PRIVATE LESSONS >>
I (Kevin Jackson) am the primary coach for private instruction for all players training at SHOQ. Players with outside coaching relationships are welcome. My first task is to evaluate the player, technically, tactically, mentally, and physically (strength, endurance/stamina, mental resilience).
After a thorough evaluation a preliminary plan is designed, and implemented. As a phase two the plan is refined to match the players goal based on their aptitude. I will be accepting players based on space availability and aptitude. If a player is not motivated to work, I will recommend other coaches with available time.
SMALL GROUP TRAINING >>
The SHOQ small group sessions are unique in that we don’t take a lot of breaks, and the players are expected to perform at capacity. Most new players don’t expect to be pushed, as most programs in the area not very demanding. Our goal is to work hard daily to achieve a peak performance level. So all players have to contribute the group by putting in the effort.
PRACTICE MATCHES >>
Our goal is to have the players compete daily with specific goals in mind. We are looking to invite players for matches and sets so our group can play sets weekly. In the event that we are limited on court space we will be doing team singles, half court points, or three player singles, plus doubles, and half court consistency points.
FITNESS TRAINING >>
We don’t just talk about fitness we emphasize it. My players are expected to adhere to a rigorous fitness training schedule. Sessions include flexibility for injury prevention, agility, balance, strength, and speed training.
Our after school program will consist of players at varying levels and ages so we will modify the exercises to fit the ability of the players. Any player with physical restrictions is welcome to notify us at any time of their situation.
