All sessions stress the importance of a positive attitude and good sportsmanship.

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week-long tennis camp.

    July 22, 2022: Mason loved the coaches, the drills, the overnight activities and especially the food in the dining hall. I read his coach evaluation and was really impressed at how well they paid attention to each child. His coach had noted something that was more of a mental component of Mason's game and something we had just noticed him seeming to be worried about in his tournament matches. I love that his coach had recognized that too.
