Your child will learn the fundamentals of the game through drills, games, and friendly competition adapted to age and skill level while practicing sportsmanship in a safe and fun environment.

TENNIS CAMP OPTIONS
Red Team (5-8 years old):
Campers learn basic technique and accuracy while developing athletic skills in a fun environment. Campers use racquets sized for small hands and, while playing on a small court, use slower balls that are easier to hit, building confidence in their game.
Orange Team (9-10 years old):
Divided into two levels, Orange is for both beginner and intermediate 10 and under campers ready to play on a slightly larger court. The classes are designed to continue building athletic skills while learning or refining the skills necessary to serve, rally, and score.
Green Team (10-12 years old):
Green is designed for beginner to intermediate level campers. Green is taught using a rally based curriculum and focuses on developing sending and receiving skills, sound footwork, racquet mechanics and incorporating comparable athletic skills developed in other sports. Campers learn how to properly position themselves to execute ground strokes and volleys, hit with purpose, serve and ultimately sustain a rally of varying speed and duration.
Yellow Team (12+):
Campers in Yellow aspire to compete in USTA sanctioned tournaments and/or participate in interscholastic competition. Practice consists of agility, balance, and fitness sessions followed by tennis training focused on stroke development, strategy and tactics for singles and doubles.
