The program „Happy Geniuses” is a lesson of concentration and mindfulness during team processes, games and activities. The basis of this programme are the achievements of modern psychology and an educational method based on Positive Discipline.

Special features of the Happy Geniuses activities:

winning is only possible, if the team is very supportive; team members often change to avoid negative competition; group leaders and teammates change, so that every child has the opportunity to gain experience in both roles; several levels of games allow you to take on greater challenges; processes teach that helping and supporting the weaker and younger is the only way to achieve team success.

The most frequently mentioned benefits observed by parents:

  • greater courage and increased self-esteem;
  • activation of leadership skills;
  • acceptance of yourself and others;
  • being natural in relationships.

TENIS

GawłowskiTennisAcademy is one of the best tennis academies in Poland

THE PLACE OF THE CLASSES

The activities are held at the Warszawianka tennis courts at 71 Piaseczyńska str. We play in balloons that are heated in winter, providing the right temperature for sports effort. In the period 2019.10.01 - 2020.04.30 we are provided with indoor courts, in the period 2020.05.01 - 2010.06.30, if the weather is good, outdoor courts (indoor courts also in reserve, in case of bad weather we go under the balloon).

SPORTS OUTFIT

I kindly ask you to provide Your child with a sports outfit: cotton shorts and a T-shirt, tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirt - at least for warming up. If, during periods of greater frost / winter, the Children prefer thermal clothing - I also ask for it. After arriving from school, we always have time to enter the cloakroom and for the Children to change clothes, and after that we start our classes on time.

Please take into account that we play on a brick flour surface, which provides the Children with healthy working conditions for joints and muscles, and a good dribble of the ball enables more effective learning (of course, we use coloured balls, appropriate to the children's sports level). On the other hand, the brick surface may cause footwear and clothing get dirty, so we suggest providing for the workout, either footwear designed typically for tennis, or one that will not be a loss for You (the same with the  clothing), and which is sports footwear with a smooth sole (we avoid footwear like flip flops and sandals and so on – to provide the children with health and prevent injuries). Of course, these "post-workout" flour soils can we washed out.

SPORTS EQUIPMENT

We provide tennis rackets and all other equipment needed to conduct training. If the Child has his/her own equipment and wants to play with it - of course, we invite you to bring your own. If any of you wants to buy a racket for your Child - we will soon receive a promotional equipment offer from our technical partner (Babolat), among others for Children - I will inform You and it will be possible for you to benefit from the discounts that our Academy has. If anyone is interested in buying - of course we will be happy to advise you.

OTHER INFORMATION

If you decide that I should have any information that can help your Child - please send such information by e-mail or telephone.
