Camp Program Offerings
Each day will include morning and afternoon tennis sessions consisting of instruction, drills and match play. Demonstrations will divide each session into different segments. Upon arrival, all campers are evaluated and placed in one of three instructional programs.
Learn the fundamentals for all strokes, including proper grips, stroke mechanics, footwork, movement and balance. Introduce match play. For players ages 5-10 who are just learning the sport we offer a "QuickStart" or "10 and Under" program. This program provides a positive introduction to tennis fundamentals and low key match play situations for younger campers. Balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized to smaller hands for better grip and control. Courts are smaller and easier to cover so that kids can focus on developing tactical and technical skills—with more success and less frustration.
Strengthen strokes to develop more power and control. Examine match play strategies to help improve competitive skills.
Refine stroke production, increase power, and improve match play skills through advanced drills, physical training and singles and doubles competition. The Tournament Training Program geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness.
