Camp Skill Levels
All campers are evaluated and placed in one of three instructional programs.
Beginners: learn the fundamentals for all strokes, including proper grips, stroke mechanics, footwork, movement and balance. Introduce match play.
Intermediate: strengthen strokes to develop more power and control. Examine match play strategies to help improve competitive skills.
Advanced: refine stroke production, increase power, and improve match play skills through advanced drills, physical training and singles and doubles competition. Our tournament training session is slated for the week of July 11th - 16th.
QuickStart / 10 and Under Tennis:
This year we are also offering a "QuickStart" or "10 and Under" program for those kids ages 5-10 who are just learning the sport. 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.
Each day will include morning and afternoon tennis sessions consisting of instruction, drills and match play. Demonstrations will divide each session into different segments. Before camp (8am-9am) and after camp (4pm-5pm) care is available for $10 per person each hour.
