Join us for a unique conference dedicated to teaching junior tennis!

Evolution is a unique event where all presentations explore the needs and development of junior players at different ages and stages. Based on three core principles we present a Journey from 6 to 16 explaining the priorities at each stage. Each presentation, delivered by an international speaker considers:

  • The demands of the court and ball at each stage (including Red, Orange, Green and Yellow)
  • The cognitive and emotional development of the child
  • The physical capacity and developemnt of the child

Do you want to get a deeper  understanding of 10 and under tennis? Presentations clearly identify what to teach and when. Do you work mostly with an older age group? Get the views of coaches who have worked successful up to professional level. Are you looking to develop a complete junior player pathway? See how to  make the connection between your priorities at an older age group and the skills you teach at under 10.

Drawing upon the experience of coaches who specialise in specific areas of junior tennis the conference covers the full age range from 6 to 16, with speakers from North America, Europe and  South America.
