Our traditional tennis camps (non match-play or college prep) are designed to focus on the fundamentals and swing techniques of the modern tennis strokes. Some of the areas of focus for each level include:
• Beginners: The beginning level player will be introduced to the basics of the game. Emphasis will be placed on stroke production and the technical aspects of the swing in an effort to teach these young players sound fundamentals from the ground up.
• Intermediate: Intermediate level players will also focus on fundamental stroke production (to ensure proper technique), but will also be in put into game play situations to introduce these players to the competitive side of the game.
• Advanced: The more advanced players will work with stroke production in a competitive environment, but will also be introduced to the basic strategies of the game.
• High School / Tournament: Varsity high school and tournament players will focus on the strategic and competitive aspects of the game. Although there will be attention spent on the stroke fundamentals, more emphasis will be placed on point progression, court positioning, patterns and sequences, percentage plays and live ball drill work.

The summer tennis camp at Colorado College ensures personal attention by putting special emphasis on small enrollment. This allows camp director and head women’s coach, Anthony Weber, and his staff to ensure young players the proper amount of repetitions to recognize their improvement throughout the week.
The Colorado College camp is designed for all skill levels ages 8-18. The curriculum of this camp is built on the idea of helping all levels be able to improve throughout the course of the week. Each camper will receive instruction on the fundamentals of all major strokes and will enhance their skills through repetition, ball-feeding drills, live-ball situations and competitive match play. In addition, campers will be exposed to team competition match play in both singles and doubles.

Fun and Learning with camp curriculum featuring instruction, drill session, games and match play
