CHECK-IN

During the eachday of camp, campers should report to the trailer

 

SKILL WORK

With no more than a 5:1 student/pro ratio, campers are organized onto separate courts according to their own age and ability. Once on the appropriate court, campers are given instruction on tennis fundamentals, and run drills to practice these techniques with the help of DVTA tennis professionals. We use low compression tennis balls, each age group has their own color, size and weight to help our students achieve success. Clinics are always kept up-beat ensuring that campers are learning, while still having fun. 

 

MATCH PLAY

At this age, mOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAatchplay is a stepping stone, preparing students to transition from practicing tennis in a group setting, to playing tennis in more competitive arenas such as tournaments or team matches. In this stress free zone, campers apply techniques taught during group instruction on 36ft, 60ft, and 78ft courts using low compression balls as needed. As they become more comfortable executing proper technique, we begin to add in other components of playing in competitive matches, such as keeping score and calling balls out of bounds. At the end of the day, video analysis of matches are used to bring to light to good technique and sportsmanship during matches. 

Cafeteria tables and chairs 2017LUNCH
