As a guideline for participation in Super 10s, players should be able to perform the following green ball key competencies. If unsure, please speak to your child’s private coach to assess whether Super 10s is the appropriate competition for the player’s stage of development.

Key Competencies:

–   Differentiate speed and spin on first and second serves

–   Rally crosscourt for 10–15 shots varying height over the net, depth, speed and spin

–   Use approach, drive volley, volley and overhead in an offensive way

–   Keep great posture and maintain balance from a wide, narrow, and one-legged base

–   Display independence; pack their own bag for matches and practice, and complete a regular warm-up routine and practice regularly without the coach

Age eligibility for Super 10s is as follows: Athletes are able to apply for Super 10s provided they do not turn 11 before the Grand Final round in their environment.  I.e. athletes must be 10 or younger for the entirety of the season.
In South Australia, this means the athlete’s 11th birthday cannot fall before November 21, 2016 to be eligible for Season #2 of Super 10s.

Registrations for the Season #2 Training Days are now closed.
