UYT Youth Summer Tennis
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 fundamentals and advanced technique, with more instruction and smaller coach-to-player ratios. During each session, players will be assigned to groups of around 4 players, 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. Coaches are assigned over up to 2 groups at a time. 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 has a focus on one important general area of tennis, and each day has a specific emphasis within that focus. It is important for players to participate in as many days as they can.
