YELLOW BALL

This program is focused on developing ball control skills and fundamentals starting with low compression balls leading to yellow ball, depending on the skill level of players. This program is designed for a range of skill levels, from the total beginner to an intermediate player.

Older players typically progress quickly through low compression balls into yellow ball as their coordination is further developed and their physical strength allows for a faster transition through low compression balls. Sessions may begin on a smaller court, but will also progress to full size as the players develop their skill set.

For players aged 12+ who have either progressed through the first three levels or are new to the game and play at a beginner level. Coach: Player Ratio = 6:1. Participants may register in more than one session per week
