The start of April means that summer is just around the corner, and as families begin to make their summer plans, the USTA National Campus is gearing up for another successful year of summer camps.
Registration is now open for Summer Camp 2019 at the USTA National Campus. This year’s camp offers a wide variety of options for kids of every skill level, ages 5-17, including both morning and full-day sessions.
Summer Camp 2019 will feature professional coaching and tennis training, combined with the perfect blend of competition, camaraderie and fun.
In addition to morning on-court tennis training and afternoon match-play opportunities, the camp’s expert coaching staff will help guide players in developing comprehensive and individualized training plans. They will also offer personal guidance on tournament play and competitive scheduling.
Summer Camp 2019 consists of nine one-week sessions that can be registered for individually. The sessions begin on Monday, June 3, and run through Friday, Aug. 9. There will be no camp the week of July 1-5 in observance of Independence Day.
Full-day camp runs from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and includes lunch for each camper. Morning camp runs from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Prices vary, based on age and skill level.
Summer Camp 2019 is divided into three main categories: Red & Orange Ball, Youth Development, and High Performance.
Red & Orange Ball is designed for players ages 5-10 (must be at least entering kindergarten in the fall of 2019). The programming will be held on smaller courts designed for beginning players. The summer camp staff will ensure that all campers learn how to play tennis and learn the required tennis and athletic skills to enjoy the sport now – and stick with it for a lifetime.
Youth Development is designed for players ages 11-17 who are either new to the game, are experienced Junior Team Tennis/high school team players, or are currently enrolled in our Campus Youth/Campus Youth Plus programs. Players will train with others who are similar in age and ability. Mornings will focus on drill-based coaching, while afternoons will be centered around match play, giving campers opportunities to practice their game under the guidance of coaches.
And, finally, the High Performance program is designed for players who compete in state, sectional and/or national USTA tournaments. Players will train with others who are similar in age and ability. Morning training will focus on technique, shot selection, and patterns of play. Skills designed to help players deal with pressure tolerance will be emphasized. Afternoons will consist of match-play opportunities with expert coaches who will also guide players in developing comprehensive and individualized training plans. Coaches will also offer personal guidance on tournament play, competitive scheduling, and nutrition and hydration. The program includes fitness sessions to improve speed, flexibility, agility and core strength.
New this year, the USTA National Campus is offering a special promotion for families who want to register early for Summer Camp 2019. All players who register for a week of full-day camp by April 15 will receive a $50 gift card to the Pro Shop. Players who register for three or more weeks of full-day camp by April 15 will receive an additional $100 in Pro Shop spending.
