At WWTA, The Saint John’s High School tennis players work with our children under 12. Each player completed a training session where they learned (1) The WWTA Technique Check Points, (2) The Fun Games That Apply The Check Points and (3) The Mutual Support Principles. Through our experience, we have found that younger teaching pros are the best fit for children under 12. First, the technique and application of technique is simpler for children. We created Technique Check Points that each student-teacher knows and can apply by heart. Second, the most important factor for children continuing tennis is the amount of fun they have on the tennis court. We have found that kids have the most fun in small groups with younger teaching pros that teach in a state of inspiration. Lastly, we want to spread Principle to as many young people as possible. A prerequisite to being a teaching pro at WWTA is the embodiment of Principle. When the Saint John's player's embody Principle, they expand Principle for themselves, and spread Principle to the children. That is one of our main goals at WWTA: to spread Principle to as many young people as possible. See The Story and Mission Section for The WWTA Principles.
