This week's tennis coaching in pictures July / August

This week was a real Melbourne week. We had warm, foggy & cold mornings with a mixture of sun and cloud. This certainly didn't deter the groups from coming out and playing some fantastic tennis this week. Well done to all the students who braved the elements to make class.

 

Sporting Schools Program Review - ANZ Tennis Hotshots

Last week we finished our final Sporting Schools class at North Brunswick Primary School. We got the opportunity to visit the school over 3 weeks and deliver a fun filled ANZ Tennis Hotshots Program. Throughout the classes, the children got the chance to work on Forehands, Backhand, Volley's & Smashes.

The tennis lessons which took place on the school grounds were enjoyed by all, and we can't wait to return for another Sporting Schools Program very soon.

Staying active when weather turns

As the colder months aproach we thought it would be a good time to talk about motivation and staying active and healthy through the colder months. For many, children included these colder months can provide a 'rationalisation' for reducing exercise and decreasing healthy eating in exchange for junk food and the couch. However, as many of you do know, this is in fact the time to try and really remain fit, healthy and active.

There are a number of reasons for this. 

Strenghen Immune system. By maintaining regular exercise and health we strengthen our immune system and this will help to ward off colds and ailments.

Strengthen the regualr release of endorphins. Colder weather can often create feelings of energy lows and depression to a greater extent than when the sun is out and shinning.

Build up skills for summer. During the colder months its a great time to train, prepare and get ready for the return of warmer weather. Get out there and get the edge!

Enjoyment! Dont let the weather stop you from doing things you love. Throw on some warmer clothes and get out there and active with friends and family.

See you out there guys!
