Camp Director Jun Hernandez
Rogelio "Jun" Hernandez is entering his 13th season as head coach of the Rainbow Wahine tennis team. Hernandez has compiled a 91-130 record since taking over the Rainbow Wahine on Jan. 4, 2006. He is the program’s eighth head coach and ranks second in wins and tenure.View Jun Hernandez's Bio ⟩
Most recently, Hernandez has guided Rainbow Wahine Cindy Nguyen to back-to-back appearances in the NCAA women's tennis singles championships in 2014 and '15.
As a freshman in 2014, Nguyen became the first UH women's tennis player to ever play in the NCAA singles championship after finishing her rookie season as the top ranked player in the Big West. This past season as a sophomore, Nguyen ramped up her game, becoming the first Rainbow Wahine to ever be voted a conference (Big West) Player of the Year and to be selected as a Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Southwest Region "Player to Watch" award winner.
In 2012, Hernandez guided the program to a number of firsts--including leading the 'Bows to its first NCAA tournament appearance; its first Western Athletic Conference tournament title; and the progam's first ever Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) team ranking to name a few highlights from the record-setting year.
Hernandez previously served as the assistant coach for the California men's tennis team for three and a half seasons under head coach Peter Wright. During his stay, the Golden Bears finished with a No. 4 national ranking during the 2002-03 season, their best season in 12 years. Cal advanced to the NCAA Championships each season.
Prior to that, Hernandez served as Cal's assistant women's coach for three seasons under head coach Jan Brogan. Hernandez was awarded the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's Women's Assistant Coach of the Year for the Northwest Region in 2002.
In 2000, the Golden Bears advanced to the NCAA Championship semifinals before losing to rival Stanford for the second consecutive year. That Cal team featured the pair of Claire Curran and Amy Jensen, who teamed up to capture the NCAA doubles title. The next two years, Hernandez helped Cal advance to the NCAA Round of 16. Hernandez takes over a storied UH program which has not had a winning season since the 1998-99 season. He is the eighth head coach in the program's history, which has posted 10 20-win seasons all under former coach Jim Schwitters, the winningest coach in NCAA Division I history. Hernandez has spent the summers as a hitting coach for professional tennis players Martina Hingis, previously the world's No. 1 ranked player, Anna Kournikova, and Conchita Martinez on the Women's Tennis Association Tour. Hernandez began his collegiate coaching resume as a volunteer assistant at the University of San Diego in 1998. The next year he served as the top assistant and played an instrumental role in guiding Zuzana Lesenarova to the 1999 NCAA singles title.
Previously, Hernandez served as an assistant tennis pro at the Rancho Bernardo Swim & Tennis Club. In addition, he also worked at Golden Valley Country Club as the head coordinator for junior tennis, and the San Diego area after-school tennis enrichment program.
A 1995 graduate of San Diego State, Hernandez played No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles for the Aztecs in 1994. In 1996, he was a finalist at the USTA National Men's 25 Hardcourt Singles tournament and ranked No. 3 in the USTA's Southern California Section rankings. He won five men's open singles titles and three men's open doubles events during 1997 in Southern California. The following year, he captured one open singles title in Southern California and four open singles titles in Minnesota.

A great experience for adults
August 14, 2017: Coach Hernandez and his staff were the perfect blend of enthusiasm, knowledge, and friendliness to make it an enjoyable learning experience despite tough conditions - it was a scorcher of a weekend. A great experience for adults who didn't benefit from junior coaching. And probably a great refresher camp for those that have been away for some time.

great training on technique
