OUR TENNIS COACHING PROGRAMS

Mooloolaba Tennis Hot Shots Volley Drill

HOT SHOTS TENNIS

Our Hot Shots Group Lessons cater to all students from beginner to intermediate player standards aged 4 to 12 years old. In these lessons students use low compression balls and a modified court to begin to explore the fundamental and perceptual motor skills and tennis basics. As your kids progress and start to enjoy learning tennis skills, emphasis then moves to learning to score and playing the game of tennis. These sessions are 45 minutes in duration. Our average ratio is one coach per 6 players. Additionally, we have special classes for our younger Red Ball players called Mini-Blue which are 30 minutes in duration with a one to four class size ratio.

Our Next Gen & Challenger Squads are for players who play regular fixtures and are looking to reach the next level with their tennis. This is a pathway to our Invitational Performance Squads, which are for serious tennis players who want to be among the top performing tournament players in the country. These classes include technical analysis, point play, tactical feedback, fitness, match-play and strength and conditioning training. We have had many players come through our Performance Squads who have gone on to receive college scholarships in the USA.

What Do People Say About KT Academy?

We are dedicated to providing high quality, professional tennis coaching to students of all ages and abilities!

Our 6 year old son Ged has been a participant in the KT Academy Hotshots program since he turned 5. The coaches at the club not only run an interesting and structured program for young players but also have extensive experience working with and engaging payers within this age group. Ged’s tennis skills have improved markedly during his time in the program. We highly recommend Hotshots at KT Academy!

Catherine and Chris Barrett

We have been fortunate to have Adon coach our daughter since 2016. During this time we have watched her improve on technique, strength and endurance in her tennis. Adon encourages her to continually strive to be a strong, positive player, challenging her abilities both physically and mentally, while fostering a love for the game. Adon’s unique qualities as a coach combined with his natural athletic ability and his strong competitiveness makes him a fine example and role model to all members of the club.

Carolyn Wass-Burke

My son absolutely loves his training and has made a great amount of friends who support and challenge each other to become better players. Adon and his team have created an amazing culture that my son loves being a part of. Under Adon’s coaching platform, I have watched my son grow from a quiet, timid young boy into a confident, strong, driven boy who wants to be the best he can… now he is playing better than he ever has thanks to Adon and KT Academy.
