Now in our fourth year, the Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camp at Colorado College is one of the most personal and comprehensive tennis camps in the state. With an emphasis on small enrollment to ensure personal attention, the CC camp provides young players 5.5-6 hours of tennis a day to ensure the proper amount of repetitions to see marked improvement throughout the week.
The camp is directed by Colorado College Head Men’s and Women’s Tennis coach Anthony Weber. Coach Weber has been a staple in Colorado Springs tennis more many years and brings his enthusiasm, personal attention and first rate tennis instruction to the camp.
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 and match play in singles and doubles. These camps are excellent preparation for anyone interested in participating in middle school, high school or USTA team tennis, or preparing to compete in USTA leagues and/or tournaments.

Comprehensive instructional program with daily teaching progressions

TRADITIONAL CAMPS: 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.
