Bop Till You Drop

Bop till you Drop run Performing Arts Workshops in the July School Holidays. Our award winning workshops are designed for children aged 5-12years. These programs are educational with professional teachers who will gently encourage and teach your child new skills in DANCING, SINGING, ACTING, plus craft, cooking and science to break up the action packed day. Our Performing Arts Workshops WON the Peoples Choice Award at the 2019 What’s On 4 Kids Awards.

There are 6 classes per day, each class runs for 45 minutes. This program is aimed at building self-esteem in your child. We allow them to be part of the creative process rather than dictating our ideas. This helps build their self-confidence and makes them feel proud of their achievements. The children will perform in a concert on the last day to show off their new talents and they will also be awarded a graduation certificate. The concert is an important part to building confidence and their public speaking skills. Also we want them to walk away with a big sense of satisfaction knowing they worked towards something and accomplished it. Bop Till Your Drop also won the Peoples Choice Awards for their School Holiday Programs in this years What’s On 4 Kids Awards.

Lane Cove Tennis Club

School holiday camps run over 4 days, Monday to Thursday, from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Camps are suitable for all ages of kids and cater for beginners to intermediate players. Our coaches use Tennis Australia’s ANZ Hot Shot program so learning strokes is easy.

Kids learn each stroke of tennis from forehand and backhands, volleys and smashes to the most challenging shot, the serve.  They are taught how to score so they can start playing games. There are other fun skills activities so footwork and stroke technique is reinforced.

Daily rates and full camp rates (4 days) so there is flexibility in pricing and commitment.  There are early bird rates available too.

What to bring
Racquet, hat, water bottle, healthy snacks and lunch.  Wear comfortable sporting clothing, sand-shoes or running shoes.

What’s provided
A BBQ lunch on the last day at no cost. All coaches are Tennis Australia accredited.  Modified balls.
