The Vida “my Progress Program” enables kids to monitor progress along their tennis journey. The aim of the my progress program is to highlight and fast track their development to playing real tennis. As the levels progress the child’s knowledge, ability and confidence grows enabling transition from the co-operative themes to compete.

Tennis Lessons

Once the child has finished the my Progress program they have a number of options both for coaching and competition play. Coaching options include squad sessions (both Green Ball & Hard Ball), Private Lessons (Tech/Rep Program), Video Analysis and Yellow ball tennis.

Competition Play

Along the my Progress program kids are introduced to scoring and real tennis through their lessons and introductory co-operative play (Vida Red Ball Comp). Players then transition into compete themes within lessons and the Hot Shots Leagues.

The next steps for competition play are association junior competition, junior pennant, super 10′s, Junior Development Series round robin events and/or Junior ranking events. You coach will help guide you through this program or click here to view an overview pathway.
