Nike Tennis Camps Welcomes The Rod Schroeder National Tennis Camp!
Please welcome Nike Tennis Camps' latest addition:
The Rod Schroeder National Tennis Camp!
Since 1979, Midwest USPTA Hall of Fame coach and player, Rod Schroeder, has directed one of the very best tennis camps in America on the beautiful campus of Carthage College, on Lake Michigan. Over 12,000 happy tennis campers have attended the RSTA where they have improved dramatically through Rod’s “Stop ‘N Go” teaching system. You'll never be the same after attending the Rod Schroeder National Tennis Camp...not only because of the expert training that's sure to help you reach your full potential, but for the pleasant summer camp memories that will last a lifetime!
Students that attend The Rod Schroeder National Tennis Camp learn the master the three concepts of the tennis game, technique, strategy, and mental game. The first is technique, which is taught through the Start Rite Tennis grip trainer (U.S. Pat. 7,896,762). This grip trainer helps students develop the correct grip and stroke technique, necessary for a solid foundation for a successful tennis game. The next concept is strategy, which is taught through the Stop 'n Go Tennis Teaching System. The last concept is the tennis mental game which is taught through characters and demonstrations by Rod and the rest of the staff in addition to daily match play. The biggest opponent in a tennis match is not the person standing on the other side of the net, but you! The mental game of tennis can either make or break a player which is why it is taught so extensively. The Start Rite Tennis Grip trainer and Stop 'n Go Tennis Teaching System are created, developed, and patented by Rod Schroeder. This unique teaching system allows every rigorously trained instructor to teach stroke technique and strategy simultaneously. No other tennis camp in the whole world can say the same thing!
