Junior Tennis Day Camp is for girls and boys who have reached the intermediate, advanced or early tournament level. The camp day is structured around fun, exciting drills in the morning that reinforce the important aspects of tennis technique and strategy. Topics will include, but are not limited to: stroke technique, stroke production, shot selection, patterns of play, high vs. low percentage and consistency. Download the camp flier.

Afternoon match/game play will give campers the opportunity to play against other talent levels that will improve their tennis game. The camp will also focus on other aspects of strategy, nutrition, cross-training, fitness, and mental focus techniques that will help to continue to build one’s tennis foundation.
