Campers will learn a different stroke each day. Instruction includes the forehand, backhand, serve, and volley in game situations. There is also an optional cross-training component to facilitate coordination and improve endurance. Games like soccer and kickball will be played. Match Play will be offered as an option in addition to field games.  USTA 10 and under tennis Match Play, designed for the junior player, will be played on a modified court with tennis balls designed for their specific skill level.  This will provide players with an opportunity to play ‘real’ tennis and learn the rules of the game.  Children should bring a nut-free snack.
