Kollectaball: Hopper

The Kollectaball Hopper is the ultimate tennis ball collector and feeder all-in-one. Use it to collect up to 60 tennis balls in seconds then flip it upside down to use it as a ball feeder.  With five adjustable feeding heights between 35 inches and 42 inches, it is the first ball feeder that fits players and coaches of all sizes.

Very lightweight at under 8 lbs, the Kollectaball Hopper is also extremely durable as cage wires are tested for over 10,000 hours of use without breaking. Works great on clay, grass and hard courts without damaging any court surface.  Fun and easy to use with interchangeable cages that can pick up all types of tennis balls, the Kollectaball Hopper is perfect for training or coaching.

Is Your Student-Athlete Getting the Most out of the Ontario School System?

For elite student athletes, combining school with a rigorous training and competitive play schedule can be overwhelming. There is a lot on the line on both the academic and athletic fronts, including university or college admission, athletic and academic scholarships and a potential pro or Olympic career. Navigating the Ontario school system can be a daunting task for parents and students. With some school/training days stretching longer than standard work hours, it is important that a student gets the proper support from the school system and is fully aware of their right to the delivery of a complete and customized education curriculum.

Let Cathy Dandy and Associates help your family get the most out of the Ontario school system for a student-athlete. They have years of experience in advocating for students in Ontario and can effectively navigate the system to help ensure that a student athlete gets the most out of their school experience while training to be the best at what they do.

Click here to get started and take advantage of a free half hour consultation to find out if we can help your family and student-athlete. You don't have to do this alone.
