Camp Formats


 

"Quick Start Tennis"


We offer a €œQuick Start Tennis program, featuring the USTA€™ successful new teaching format. This is an exciting new way kids€™ 8 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime.

Day and overnight camps


Upon arrival at camp each player is observed so that players of similar levels are grouped together. Each group of five students is assigned to an instructor who will work with the group as a whole and also with each individual. In this way, the player benefits from his individual coaching and also from general comments made to other players in his group.


First training session begins at 3:00 pm for day and overnight campers. 


During the week campers receive the following:

  • five to six hours of daily instruction on the courts
  • instruction on stroke production and proper shot
    execution
  • drill situations to improve singles and doubles
  • time set aside for competition, free tennis, and playing with instructors
