ABOUT ME

 • • •

Hi my name is Kahlee and I have recently returned to coaching after having a gorgeous baby boy, Ethan, in February. Many of you will recall seeing me waddling around the court late last year during the warmer months and I am looking forward to catching up with everyone again.

WHAT I TEACH MOST

• • •

I have been coaching for around 3 years now, after completing my Level 1 Coaching Qualification with the AATC and completing the Tennis Australia Hot Shots Community Coaching Course. I started playing tennis when I was around 6 years old and still enjoy the game just as much as I did when I was young. My favourite thing about tennis is the feeling of moving around the court, the feeling of playing well and the people that you meet. My favourite players are Serena Williams and Roger Federer. I currently play competition tennis with Gladstone Park and Glenroy Tennis Clubs in the NSNTA and NSLTA competitions. Before coaching I worked for Golf Victoria after completing my Bachelor of Exercise and Human Movement at Victoria University.

THE FOCUS OF MY TEACHING

• • •

I place a strong emphasis on footwork and consistency as I believe these are the most important parts of the game. I also believe in developing the stroke from a young age

WHAT I ENJOY MOST ABOUT TEACHING

• • •

seeing the kids enjoy themselves and giving them a high energy experience while they learn new skills and develop their game. It is especially great to see young girls giving tennis a go, or any sport for that matter. I think it is very important to maintain children’s interest in sport and developing their confidence. The Elite Tennis Academy is a great place to work and a welcoming and encouraging place to begin your tennis journey.
