The my Vida Journey Certificate program has under gone some changes over the summer and is now in full swing across all the Vida venues. Its great to see the kids taking such an interest in their tennis pathway and understanding what they have to do to get to the next next towards “real tennis”.
The Head Start program has been particularly successful in helping kids “Master their Fundamental Motor Skill,” the bulding blocks to sport, building blocks of sport, physical activity and child development. These don’t develop automatically. Children without FPMS are severely disadvantaged when it comes to the sport, physical and psychological experiences they will enjoy during a lifetime.
The above picture is from the Veneto Club in Bulleen with some of the Sunday kids receiving their certificate.
Kids also remember you can claim your Free Hot Shots T/Shirts once you have enrolled in a class with Vida. If you have not claimed yours already click on the below icon and fill in your details. For a limited time you may also be able to get a Sponge Bob backpack.

The my Vida journey program enables all kids to monitor their progress from when they start tennis through to playing real tennis, club junior competition or entry level tournaments. As the structured levels progress so does the child’s skills, confidence & ability, receiving certificates to show their achievements and progressions along the way. All kids who do Hot Shots Lessons or Group lessons will be constantly assessed to fast track their game so they can play “real tennis” as soon as possible.
