Camp Program Offerings

All Skills Program

The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background. Campers will learn fundamentals and improve upon their game. 

Tournament Training Program

The tournament training program is geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness.

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 Program

The "10 and Under Tennis” Program features the USTA’s successful teaching format. This is an exciting 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: We will use short courts and full courts during the camp. This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts.

    The coaches at the Cal Nike camp are AMAZING. They have great energy, incredible patience, and infectious enthusiasm. They also make it fun and make each child feel special. I can't say enough positive things about all the coaches - my kids LOVE the camp and are always sad when the week is over and they have to wait another year.

    The camp kept us motivated to keep going even in the heat. It also encouraged us to continue practicing beyond the camp.

    The coaches were superb. My daughter was raving about them daily. I really enjoyed their energy and level of commitment (I would stay and watch a little every day). It is definitely what I was hoping for and it will remain with my daughter for the future, she wants to come back. Thank you to all of you!

    Both my boys LOVE this camp. It is their favorite and they have been going for the past 3 years. Thank you!!

    This is a fabulous camp - the perfect balance of drills and games. My son loves this camp and looks forward to waking up and going. The camp seems to attract like-minded kids - enthusiastic and good-natured - at various skill level. He adores the coaches and would attend all 6 weeks if our schedule allowed. Not sure if all Nike Tennis camps are the same, but I have a feeling that this one is particularly special.

    The Cal tennis staff, in particular Tyler Browne, is enthusiastic, organized, kind, and provides a fun atmosphere for kids to learn & enjoy the sport of tennis. This has been my kid's favorite camp for years!

    Invaluable Experience!

    When we arrived on Monday morning, we were greeted by a very friendly group of people who seemed excited to see my son.  Needless to say, he was a bit nervous about being in a new situation with kids he had never met before.  The staff gave him a really cool t-shirt and then proceeded to get all of the kids together for instruction.  The staff introduced themselves and went through the rules.  Both of us are school teachers and it was great to see the organization from the get go.  After the initial greetings and rules, they immediately got to work on warm-up and drill, a standard procedure for the following days.   I am so glad we chose to send our son to your school for camp.  He was so glad to come back and tell his coach about his wonderful experiences there.  He not only had a great time, but he felt as though he made some new friends and learned a lot from your coaches.  He is already talking about next year’s tennis camp and has decided he might want to try the full day as well. Thank you for such an invaluable experience!

    Loved it!

    My son LOVED this camp. I think its a wonderful program that allows him to be with fellow tennis enthusiasts. I could not believe he played for 7 hours a day and still wanted to play more.
