BPTA PLAYER STATUS

BPTA â┚¬Ã…”ELITEâ┚¬ PLAYER – These are the BPTA top level players who are training at least three times a week. Ideally this will be in two weekly squad sessions and a weekly private lesson. We are aiming for all of our players to be at this level of training but when they first start out they might start by training twice a week.

BPTA â┚¬Ã…”Aâ┚¬ PLAYER â┚¬Ã¢‚¬Å“ These are for BPTA players who are training twice a week. This can be in two weekly squads, or a weekly squad and private lesson. These are often our younger Red players who have just started on the BPTA PATHWAY. These players will ideally look to move to the elite level of training at some point through their first or second year with the BPTA.

BPTA â┚¬Ã…”Bâ┚¬ PLAYER â┚¬Ã¢‚¬Å“ These are only an option for our BPTA Red Competition squad players who are in their first year with the BPTA. These players are 6/7 years of age and will train in one weekly 1.5 hour squad. At this young age two one hour weekly squads is the preferred method of training as 1.5 hours can be tough to maintain concentration. These players would have to look to train twice a week when they move into the Red/Orange Competition squads
