        In Hotshots ORANGE children learn on a 3/4 court. During this stage the pupils are able to develop a complete technical repertoire. The length of the court forces the attacking player to be accurate and use spin. It allows players to approach the net and develop their net game. Modified Orange Balls fly slower through the air and bounce in the hitting zone of the child. This fast tracks their stroke development and allows them to have longer rallies and hit more tennis balls.
        Focus in on preparing the children to be capable of playing Hotshots Orange pennants. 

        Children will learn to:
        Perform a rhythmic service motion
