Meet Camp Coaches

Adam Reeb
Camp Director

Adam Reeb

Adam Reeb was named the head men's and women's tennis coach at Seattle University on August 10, 2015.

Read Full Bio

For the previous two seasons, Reeb has been the head men’s and women’s tennis coach at McKendree University, an NCAA Division II program located in Lebanon, Ill. He guided the men’s tennis team to a dual match record of 35-15 (.700), qualifying for the conference championships in both years. In 2014, he led the squad to its best finish in the Great Lakes Valley Conference (fourth place) and to its first-ever berth into the NCAA Tournament.

Reeb helped the McKendree women’s tennis team post a 31-18 (.633) dual match record, qualifying for the 2014 GLVC Tennis Championships, the program’s first-ever appearance in the conference tournament. Between the two teams, Reeb mentored five All-Conference players, 19 ITA Scholar-Athlete nominees, and 22 GLVC Academic All-Conference honorees, with both the men’s and women’s teams also earning ITA All-Academic Team and GLVC Team Academic All-Conference accolades.

At both McKendree and Lindenwood University in Belleville, Ill., where he served as head men’s and women’s tennis coach in the 2012-13 season, he coordinated and ran fundraising tennis tournaments that benefitted the respective programs. He also created and ran the official Facebook pages for both programs during his various head coaching tenures.

Reeb is very familiar with life at a Jesuit university, having served as both a player (2005-09) and an assistant coach (2010-12) at Saint Louis University. As a student-athlete with the Billikens, he served as team co-captain in both his junior and senior seasons, finishing his collegiate career ranked seventh all-time in program history for career doubles victories. A three-time honoree on the Atlantic-10 Academic All-Conference Team, Reeb received the team’s Spirit Award in both 2006 and 2009 as well as the squad’s Most Improved Player award in 2008.

Reeb received his Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Saint Louis University in 2009 and his Master of Sport Science degree from the United States Sports Academy in 2010. At Saint Louis University, he was named the Outstanding Senior in Management by the John Cook School of Business and became a member of both the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and Beta Gamma Sigma.

Camp Program Offerings

All Skills Program

The All Skills Program is 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.

10 & Under Tennis Program

The 10&Under Tennis Program is geared towards players ages 5-10 who are just learning the sport. '10 & Under Tennis' 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.

This camp was so fun and I learned a lot!

  • 5/5.
Created tennis fans!

Prior to tennis camp, my two daughters had little enthusiasm for the sport and had to be bribed to attend tennis camp. After only two days of camp, they talked about how much fun it was and my older daughter asked me to play tennis with her! This camp completely transformed their attitudes and gave them confidence in their athletic ability. Thank you to all the coaches and instructors...I think you just created some lifelong tennis fans!
