Adam Reeb enters his third season as the head men's and women's tennis coach in 2017-18.
Reeb has led both the men's and women's teams to double digit wins each of his first two seasons. The 2016-17 year was capped by the women's team advancing to the WAC Championship semifinals for a second consecutive year. 2016-17 also saw Michelle Lui and Madison Maloney earn All-WAC and WAC All-Tournament recognition. Both the Redhawk men and women received the 2017 ITA Northwest Region Community Service Award, and Reeb was selected as the USPTA's 2016 College Coach of the Year for the PNW Division. Academically, the men's team earned seven WAC All-Academic honors while the women's team earned six, each leading the way among all WAC schools. For the second straight year, both men's and women's teams also earned ITA All-Academic Team honors, while 11 total Redhawks (five men and six women) earned ITA Scholar-Athlete accolades.
Under Reeb's leadership in his first season (2015-16), the men's team tied their DI single season wins record and both teams advanced to the WAC semifinals. Academically, the men's team earned three Academic All-WAC honors while the women's team earned six. Kelli Woodman and Michelle Lui also earned All-Conference and All-Tournament accolades. Both teams also earned a place on the ITA All-Academic Team, while the men had seven individuals named ITA Scholar-Athletes and the women had three.
For the previous two seasons, Reeb has been the head men’s and women’s tennis coach at McKendree University, an NCAA Division II program located in Lebanon, Ill. He guided the men’s tennis team to a dual match record of 35-15 (.700), qualifying for the conference championships in both years. In 2014, he led the squad to its best finish in the Great Lakes Valley Conference (fourth place) and to its first-ever berth into the NCAA Tournament.
Reeb helped the McKendree women’s tennis team post a 31-18 (.633) dual match record, qualifying for the 2014 GLVC Tennis Championships, the program’s first-ever appearance in the conference tournament. Between the two teams, Reeb mentored five All-Conference players, 34 ITA Scholar-Athlete nominees, and 39 GLVC Academic All-Conference honorees, with both the men’s and women’s teams also earning ITA All-Academic Team and GLVC Team Academic All-Conference accolades.
At both McKendree and Lindenwood University in Belleville, Ill., where he served as head men’s and women’s tennis coach in the 2012-13 season, he coordinated and ran fundraising tennis tournaments that benefitted the respective programs. He also created and ran the official Facebook pages for both programs during his various head coaching tenures.
Reeb is very familiar with life at a Jesuit university, having served as both a player (2005-09) and an assistant coach (2010-12) at Saint Louis University. As a student-athlete with the Billikens, he served as team co-captain in both his junior and senior seasons, finishing his collegiate career ranked seventh all-time in program history for career doubles victories. A three-time honoree on the Atlantic-10 Academic All-Conference Team, Reeb received the team’s Spirit Award in both 2006 and 2009 as well as the squad’s Most Improved Player award in 2008.
Reeb received his Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Saint Louis University in 2009 and his Master of Sport Science degree from the United States Sports Academy in 2010. At Saint Louis University, he was named the Outstanding Senior in Management by the John Cook School of Business and became a member of both the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and Beta Gamma Sigma.
Reeb lives in West Seattle with his wife, Alyssa.

Camp Program Offerings
All Skills Program
The All Skills Program is geared towards players ages 10-18 of all skill levels. This program is geared towards beginners through advanced players who love this sport. This program includes tennis drills, match-play sessions, and some strength & injury prevention training, conditioning for footwork, speed, agility, and endurance.
10 & Under Tennis Program
The 10&Under Tennis Program is geared towards players ages 5-10 who are just learning the sport. '10 & Under Tennis' follows the logic of other youth sports: balls bounce lower, move slower through the air and are easier to hit. Racquets are sized for small hands and courts are smaller and easier to cover. By using this format, the benefits are immediate and very quickly little kids are rallying, playing, and excited to keep playing! This program includes tennis drills and match play sessions.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Point play was helpful
July 21, 2017: Practicing point play was helpful. One of the instructors was not helpful, but thr others were great.
— Paula B. Parent
Love the camp and coaches
July 28, 2017: Wish we have an option to play indoor half of a day. Playing outside in the sun all day is too much for my 5-year old boy, but he loves this camp and coaches and wants to stay for whole day camps.
— June G. Parent
Will be back next year!
July 29, 2017: This is Ravi's third year at Nike Tennis Camp. This year's staff and head coach are wonderful. He had a rough time last year a few days (tears at the end of camp) because everything was directed to an older group, but this year the ages of campers are more diverse, and the staff addresses all levels and ages. Well done, and very much appreciated. Ravi will be back for a few weeks next year!

coaches were amazing - mature, enthusiastic, kind, fun
August 31, 2016: The head coaches and on the ground coaches were amazing - mature, enthusiastic, kind, fun, showed positive role modeling all of the time, and were also excellent in their sport. Our son thrived there this summer and can't wait to go back next summer!
— Winston W. Camper
counselors were great
August 24, 2016: The report cards from Coach Reeb were very detailed. The counselors were great again this year, coaxing my hesitant child to join in the free form morning warm up.
— Eileen W. Parent
Great Camp, too expensive
July 4, 2016: Great camp, but too expensive. Can't return at that current rate which is too bad because my daughter really liked it.
— Hilary J. Parent
had a great time and learned a lot
June 30, 2016: My daughter had a great time and learned a lot and would like to sign up for the camp again!
— Trista C. Parent
coaches were nice, more match play
8/10/2015 - There was just a small group of higher level players, wish it was more competitive. It would have been nice for more match play. The coaches were all nice!!
— Philip R. Camper
improved a lot
8/10/2015 - My 5 year old had great fun and improved a lot during the camp.
— Celine J. Parent
My child had a lot of fun
7/23/2015 - My child had a lot of fun over the two weeks he was in camp. He's showing much more interest in tennis, and says that he has fun everyday. He can be overwhelmed by a large group of people, so it would have been nice to have a greeter of sorts, and a router, in that someone says hello to the campers and then directs them to a court or activity in progress, rather than having him watch for a while and try to figure out where to jump in. He just turned six, so maybe something to consider for the younger kids.
— Eileen W. Parent
wonderful tennis program with excellent teachers
7/31/2015 - Again, another very positive week of a wonderful tennis program with excellent teachers, coaches and staff. Thank you! Please offer an after school program!!!
— Roberta W. Parent
level of training is top notch
7/21/2015 - We loved this camp, the level of training is top notch and the coaches are nice. Our daughter wants to go back every summer.
— Mel O. Parent
cost too much, but good camp
7/21/2015 - While I thought the camp was very well run, cost was a concern. Would have considered two weeks, but was too pricey for the time. Having said that, it was a great first introduction to the sport for my kids.
— Mary L. Parent
coaches are awesome
7/21/2015 - The coaches are awesome. My son is so happy that despite migraines he wants to keep going! I wish that we could find these kind of coaches and training throughout the year!
— Roberta W. Parent
enjoyed the camp
7/15/2015 - My son enjoyed the camp. Your instructors made it fun which was great. Only part my son did not care for was that it was repetitive and he really wanted even more challenges. It would be cool if there was an advanced course to try out for. My son would definitely want to participate in that camp.
