UYT Youth Summer Flex Program (Grades 4th - 12th) 

Why participate in the summer camps?

The team tennis leagues that we run during the spring and fall for middle schoolers, high schoolers, and 4th-6th graders are designed to provide players with opportunities to play more organized tennis and compete in matches. We work to get the players and teams ready for their match competitions and introduce and familiarize them with the team tennis format. We hope and expect that they will gain some technical instruction along the way, but that is not the main purpose.

Our summer camps, in contrast, are the exact opposite. Objective #1 of the summer camps is to teach the students proper fundamental and advanced technique, with more instruction. During each session, players will be assigned to groups based on skill level, and their assigned instructor will teach, refine, and drill proper form and technique for each player depending on his or her needs and the area of focus for that day. We then do short games to practice implementing and solidifying the changes that were worked on. We also spend some time focused on tennis fitness and athleticism. For the players who utilize these camps we see great growth and improvement in their tennis ability. Each week is focused on a different area of tennis, and each day of the week has a different emphasis within that focus, so it is most helpful for players to attend as many days as possible. 

If you would like to participate, please register for the below session bundles according to the number of lessons you would like to be able to sign up for that month. We have also included the specific practice information for your convenience, but to sign up for specific practice locations/days/times, you will need to first purchase a bundle, and then you will be sent a separate email and link that will allow you to sign up for the specific practice days/times/locations.
