2014 Camp Information

(Camp Code: TNXRRC)
This year we are offering three weeks of Overnight and Extended Day (8:30am-9:00pm) and Day (8:30am-5:30pm) camps for kids ages 9-18 of all abilities. In addition, we will also be offering a special Tournament Training session in July geared towards tournament level and ranked players (ages 11-18) looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness. All sessions includes a private lesson with a Nike Camp coach.

10 and Under Tennis:
In addition, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” program, featuring the USTA’s successful  new teaching format. This 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.

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
