How it Works

Learn to Play is made up of two age appropriate levels. Each level takes into account the characteristics of children (both mentally and physically) to ensure that each child has fun, experiences success and is gradually introduced to a competitive environment.

Each level is designed to be delivered over a 8 week period with two sessions per week.

Level Ages Session Length Description
LTP1 4 to 7 60 mins. One hour per session made up entirely of the prepared lesson plans.
U9 8 & 9 90 mins. 45 minutes practice followed by a 45 minute modified game.
