June 1 - 26, July 6 - 31
Our summer tennis camp includes "Half Day Camp ($150/wk)" sessions and "Full Day Camp ($275/wk)" sessions (for all levels) throughout the summer. Our summer schedule insures that every camper has the opportunity to train consistently regardless of their parents work schedule. Secondly it insures an open schedule which keeps players more mentally engaged throughout the fun, challenging, 8 weeks of summer tennis. We strongly encourage all campers to participate a minimum of 6 weeks through June & July. The summer camp will have the most impact on their improvement and will provide a foundation to build upon should campers choose to continue through the school year.
Our coaches conduct brief classes covering topics such as: basic stroke production, soft physical conditioning, exercise warm-ups, tournament preparation (for players looking to compete), nutrition, goal setting, tactics, strategy & performance routines. These classes are vital for the complete development of our campers and are imperative for establishing the "intangible" aspects of successful match play. Our training routines balance the need for technical and mechanical understanding while providing situations for competitive improvement and fun match play. Our summer camp sessions provide for challenging environments and the individual needs of every camper. We look to get away from the courts and have nature walks, possible swimming activities and Friday pizza!
