2016 Seattle University Nike Tennis Camp Information
This year we are offering 8 weeks of day camp for players ages 5-18 of all skill levels. Campers can choose to participate in the Full Day (9:00am-4:00pm), AM Half Day (9:00am-Noon) or PM Half Day (1:00pm-4:00pm) programs. Each week offers an All-Skills Program and a 10 & Under Program. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own tennis training needs can be addressed throughout the week.
(Please note: The first three sessions will be instructed by Adam Reeb and the last five sessions will be instructed by Leslie Lindskog.)
Camp Program Offerings
All Skills Program
The All Skills Program is a half day camp on Monday-Friday (except July 5th session wich starts on Tuesday) from 9:00am-12:00pm geared towards players ages 10-18 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.
In addition to the All Skills Program, this year the The Seattle University Camp will offer QuickStart Sessions designed for players aged 5-10. Fun and Fundamental sessions are a positive introduction to tennis fundamentals and low key match play situations for younger campers. Many of these programs will use short court teaching. This program runs from 9:00am-12:00pm during all camp sessions.
