Can you please give me tips on how to improve the level of a junior squad?
The squad consists of 8 juniors at different levels and ages.
I am looking to achieve significant improvement within a span of 6 to 12 months.
If you can advise a list of tips to follow, that will be great.
I think that regular sessions is the first key. Three times a week is a good start.
Having some key focus areas for each player's development over the period where the training is tailored to that skill. Set some timelines for this development. For example, to be able to play 20 topspin balls in a row off backspin multi ball.
Keeping the game enjoyable for them is really important. Having a fun environment that will enable them to learn but also challenge them is something to aim for.
Interaction with higher levels of players either through seeing them at tournaments or engaging with them in training.
Developing a love for the game so that they are running to the hall each training session.
I am sure other readers will have other ideas.
