Currently coaching is offered to kids aged between 6 and 16.
Currently we have two groups of kids being coached.
Beginners - 5 kids as well as Intermediate - 4 kids.
Coach Son sets a maximum of 6 kids per group to ensure the quality of his training.
Each group is trained for 60 minutes with age appropriate warm-up and drills.
The kids have one additional court to practice their skills either before or after their training session with Coach Son.
All kids must bring their own rackets and jump ropes and wear non-marking court shoes.
We request the parents to remain in the gym without disrupting the coaching sessions or other players.
We would appreciate if the kids together with the parents help put back the nets following the last practice session.
We welcome parents either joining us as full members or as drop-in players.
