Summer Camp

Tennis Camp Stamford

Our Summer Training Camp Program has been designed to help players reach their realistic tennis potential by focusing on group and individualized training, tournament planning and goal setting.

Philosophy

Our tournament-level training philosophy is that there is no substitute for fundamentals and hard work. In practice, emphasis will be placed on developing players’ technical and tactical skills in all major areas of play: ground strokes, approaching / passing, net play, serves / returns, point play and competition. Players will have an opportunity to work on their technique while also learning the following skills: point development, aggressive or defensive skills, how to neutralize points or finish points. We will encourage players to develop shot selections and point-building patterns associated with the principles of high- percentage tennis.

Players will test their skills in practice and in tournaments; they will be encouraged to compete with positive and confident attitudes. Technical and tactical components are closely related to one another and are going to be implemented among our players through our unified coaching method.

Fitness

Our programs also include a daily physical-fitness training program. Fitness and conditioning are major factors in sports today. The goal of our physical-fitness training program will be to challenge each individual to reach his/her full physical potential. We have developed organized group workouts that will address all the components of physical development for a junior tennis player. These will include: movement preparation (dynamic stretching), power and plyometrics, movement skills endurance development, recovery and regeneration (static stretching).
