Drills and practice routines for your improvement from each section of the court are communicated clearly in this well thought out 3 day program which culminates in a friendly tournament where you put your new skills to use. Your game is built from understanding the purpose of positioning and choosing the correct shot from each position on the court, and then drilling those choices in meaningful progressions. Pro drills will become your drills. The camp is self flighting, meaning you are not put in a group of players at your level and mandated to stay in your group, but through competitive drills on newly learned skills, you will be given opportunities throughout each day become part of a different group.
