Ages 8-16 Enjoy a tennis experience for all levels from beginner to high school varsity player that is both fun and educational. Morning instruction includes the teaching of strong tennis stokes and precision footwork, both of which comprise the backbone of the game. Drills are incorporated to promote the development of these skills. In the afternoon, athletes are taught strategy, technique, and sportsmanship by means of challenging games and matches. The staff is fully committed to individual attention (coach-to-athlete ratio is 1:5) within the context of group learning and believes that this learning experience will last a life time. Dress and Gear: Arrive dressed to play. Sneakers and hat are required. Racquets are available if needed. Bring topical insect repellent and topical sun block (spray form not permitted). Lunch: Please bring a lunch and snacks that require no refrigeration and a reusable/refillable water bottle. There are snacks and drinks available for purchase from the vending machines on campus.
