Primary School Tennis Teachers Course
28 April, 2017 from 9:15 am - 12:15 pm
The three-hour ‘Primary School Teacher Training Course’ has been developed to give non-PE specialist teachers the confidence and tools to deliver tennis to a class of children in a small space.
The course demonstrates how, with smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, mini tennis can offer the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.
Free resources and equipment
Every teacher attending the Primary Course is supported with a free innovative DVD teaching aid, which is pupil facing and delivers the demonstrations and progressions directly to the children. The DVD provides the content and structure for a five week block of activity, covering 4-7, 7-9, 9-11 year olds. Each lesson plan contains Warm ups, ABCs and Main Theme activities, finishing with either a game or competitive activity.
Each school represented at a Primary Course is also supported with a free Schools Tennis Equipment Pack*, worth over £500, which contains, 30x Mini Tennis Rackets, 60x Mini Tennis Red balls, a 6m Mini Tennis net and a roll of barrier tape.
*Please note: Schools Tennis Equipment Packs are limited to one per school and if your school has not previously received one.
This course is aimed at qualified and active primary school teachers, teaching assistants and those working and delivering physical education in a primary school environment.
