OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVES
The WestVic Academy of Sport: Tennis Program, proudly supported by the Tennis Victoria, will provide a once-per-term training environment designed to complement athlete’s weekly training environment with their local private coach – through the provision of both on and off court activities. The program aims to bring together the most talented junior players in the Central Highlands and Wimmera regions.
The tennis program is structured to deliver four training camps over the 12 month program period, with one camp delivered each school term. Each camp combines on-court activities with sport science and personal development activities off the court. These camps are scheduled to avoid Tennis Victoria’s “Player Support Program” sessions (which is a further complement to an athlete’s daily and weekly training environment of private coaching) as well as avoid Regional Teams events. In the event of inclement weather, please note the ‘weather policy’ below.
The dates for these 2017 training camps are:
