SUMMER IS FOR TRAINING!

 

Join the Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camp at the University of Miami for an incredible week of tennis! Under the guidance of head men’s tennis coach, Mario Rincon and his staff, campers will learn the latest tennis techniques, tactics and strategies through on-court instruction, competitive drills and singles and doubles match play.

Coach Rincon is in his ninth year at the University of Miami, after a 9 year career as a professional player on the ATP tour playing in each of the four Grand Slam venues: the U.S. Open, French Open, Wimbledon and Australian Open.

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.

Director: Mario Rincon
Men’s Tennis Coach  - UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI

Mario Rincon embarks on his ninth season as the head coach of the Miami men’s tennis program. With an young and talented lineup, Rincon and the Hurricanes look to carry on the tradition of excellence that has become synonymous with Miami tennis.

In 2011-12, Rincon and the young Hurricanes were ranked as high as No. 31 in the country, despite a roster filled with a pair of freshmen, three sophomores and a trio of juniors. UM began the season 6-2 through February, ending with an 8-13 overall record. The Canes downed a pair of nationally-ranked teams in No. 55 New Mexico (4-3)and No. 57 Alabama (5-2).

In 2006, Rincon earned ACC Coach of the Year accolades after leading the Hurricanes to a remarkable turnaround in just his second season at Miami. Just one year removed from a 12-11 campaign that saw UM finish ninth in the ACC with a 2-8 record, Rincon guided the Hurricanes to a 20-5 overall record and a share of the ACC regular season title with a 9-2 conference mark, culminating with the program’s 41st appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Under his direction, the Hurricanes were ranked among the nation’s top 10 for the first time since 1994, and finished the season No. 11 after the program’s first “Sweet 16″ appearance at the NCAA Tournament in five years.

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.


 

Antoine is 10 and he is crazy about tennis (we try to practice as often as I can….). We are from France but have been living in Miami for the last 3 years.
My wife Stephanie/daughter Alice are going back to France in July for vacation and Antoine does not want to go with them because of the camp.
He wants to train with Mario at UM because he enjoyed it so much last year.
