2014 Camp Information
(Camp Code: TNXRUC)
This year we are offering two weeks of Overnight, Extended day (8:30am-9:00pm) and Day camp (8:30am-4:30pm) for boys and girls ages 9-18 of all abilities. Overnight campers must be at least 10 years old. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
Tournament Training and High School Sessions:
In addition to the general camp sessions, this year we are offering tournament training and high school sessions during certain weeks of camp. Make sure to note that you would like to participate in these programs when you register.
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.
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.
