Check-In and Departure
If your program begins with an afternoon (p.m.) session, the check-in time is 12:30, with departure the final day at noon. If your program (Saturday & Sunday) begins with a morning (a.m.) session, your check-in time is 8:00 a.m. with departure the final day at 4 p.m. For the Saturday & Sunday program, overnight campers have the option of arriving Friday evening. If you choose this option, let US Sports know, so the camp will expect you.
Once registered at camp, you will report to the tennis courts. Your skill level will be evaluated and you will be assigned to a small group of players with similar skills.
In addition to the teaching programs, there is spirited round robin play each evening.
We invite USTA team members to come to camp to strengthen their skills and work in a team format. Come with your partner or entire team. There is a 5% discount for groups of four or more campers. Groups must register at the same time to receive this discount by calling 1-800-625-3226.
Campers will play on 22 hard courts and 5 clay courts. Indoor courts are also available in the event of rain.
Overnight campers stay in King Hall (2014), just a few yards from the tennis courts. Campers may choose a single room or a double room and groups can be assigned rooms together. The dining facility is Valentine Hall.
