The start of April means summer is just around the corner. 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 2018 at the USTA National Campus. This year’s camp features a wide variety of options for kids of every skill level, ages 5-17, including both morning and full-day sessions.
Summer Camp 2018 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 2018 consists of 10 one-week sessions that can be registered for individually. The sessions begin on Monday, June 4, and run through Friday, Aug. 10. There will be no camp the week of July 2-6 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 upon age and skill level. Summer Camp 2018 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 2018). 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 tennis now – and stick with it for a lifetime.
Youth Development is designed for players ages 11-17 that are either new to the game, 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 advice on nutrition and hydration. The program includes fitness sessions to improve speed, flexibility, agility and core strength.
The USTA National Campus will also offer its full complement of adult programs throughout the summer, including the increasingly popular adult camps. Also returning this summer will be access to the indoor courts at the Adidas Performance Center to limit weather disruptions.
