OGTA uses a Games Based Approach. The Games Based Approach focuses on getting students to understand how to play the game first and then uses technique as a tool to get them to perform better.
Along with learning clinics during the week, every students has an opportunity (and is encouraged) to play practice matches against other kids of similar level.
(view video below as an example of how are Red Ball and Orange Ball clinics are structured)
In the learning clinics, students will be able to:
1. Rally with other students (sending and receiving skills)
2. Start the point with a serve (and return a serve)
3. Play the net
4. Play points (Play-Practice-Play)
