PROGRAMMES LEVELS

Our progression chart and simple-to-follow descriptors are designed to help parents understand which group their child should be in. We want your kids to be challenged but also in the appropriate level group for best results.

The information provided should also serve to encourage and explain how a player can progress from one level to a higher level.

If you are still unsure which group your child should be in, please feel free to ask an OTR pro for assistance, or we can schedule a half-hour assessment to determine the most suitable group for your child.
