Camp Program Offerings

High Performance Program

The High Performance Camp Program is a full day camp on Monday-Friday from 10:00am-4:00pm designed for advance, competitive, tournament-playing juniors ages 11-18. Camp focuses on advanced techniques and strategies to raise your game to the next level. This program includes tennis drills, match-play sessions, classroom sessions for tactics and strategy, and daily strength & injury prevention training, conditioning for footwork, speed, agility and endurance at the fitness center. 

All Skills Program

The All Skills Program is a half day camp on Monday-Friday from 9:00am-12:00pm geared towards players ages 11-18 of all skill levels. This program is geared towards beginners through advanced players who love this sport. This program includes tennis drills, match-play sessions, and some strength & injury prevention training, conditioning for footwork, speed, agility and endurance at the fitness center.

10&Under Tennis Program

The 10&Under Tennis Program is a half day camp on Tues/Wed/Thurs from 9:00am-12:00pm geared towards players ages 7-10 who are just learning the sport. '10 & Under Tennis' (aka QuickStart) follows the logic of other youth sports: balls bounce lower, move slower through the air and are easier to hit. Racquets are sized for small hands and courts are smaller and easier to cover. By using this format, the benefits are immediate and very quickly little kids are rallying, playing, and excited to keep playing! This program includes tennis drills and match play sessions.
