Camp Program Offerings

The Beginner Program

For players ages 8-18 of all skill levels. This program is geared towards players completely new to the game or those who have begun to love the sport and want to get better. The Beginner program gives campers the opportunity to greatly improve all your skills, and learn new ones, through intensive tennis training that includes: stroke production drills, tennis conditioning and singles and doubles matches. This program is offered both weeks.

The Junior Varsity/Intermediate Program

Open to campers ages 8-18, is geared towards those players that have a more extensive background in tennis. This program focuses on building the skills the player already possesses as well as improving and advancing various techniques through extensive drilling and match play. If you are unsure of which program to choose, all campers will be evaluated by the staff on the first day in order to appropriately group them based on their skill level. This program is offered both weeks.

The Varsity/Elite Tournament Competition

Designed for advanced, competitive, tournament-playing juniors ages 12-18. Camp focuses on advanced techniques and strategies to raise your game to the next level. This is ideal for players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness. The program is offered both weeks.

High School Program

The High School Program is provided for players ages 13-18 currently on their high school team and wanting to move up the ladder, or those planning on making the high school team.

10 and Under Tennis

This program is an exciting new way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are  low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts. For more information on “10 and Under Tennis” programs nationwide, Click Here to check out the USTA website.
