Camp is open to any and all entrants and only restricted only by age and number of campers.
- 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.
- High Performance Clinic: The High Performance sessions at Seattle U. are special high-intensity options for players looking to advance to the next level. Players will go through 3 hours of intensive training including specific work on essential areas such as strategy, match-like scenarios, and breaking down techniques for certain shots. A low ratio of 4 players to 1 coach will be maintained so that the high-quality coaching staff can provide optimal instruction throughout the strength, conditioning, footwork, and tennis drills. Players will have the opportunity to chat with coaches about the college experience, and professional level, or discuss any of their personal goals so we can help and advise what may be the best plan for them. These are 1-day clinics, 9:00am-12:00pm for players ages 13-18.
- We offer Full Day Camps, Monday- Thursday (9:00am-4:00pm) for boys and girls, ages 5-18, with All Skills and 10&Under Tennis programs each week. New in 2023, we also offer High Performance clinics on Saturdays throughout the summer for high-level players ages 13-18.
