Co-Director: Bobby Bayliss Head Men’s Tennis Coach - UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME Over the past 41 years, Bob Bayliss has built a reputation as one of the top collegiate tennis coaches in the country. Few others have turned out so many exceptional players, had such great team success and earned as many honors as Bayliss, who is entering his 24th season as head coach of the Fighting Irish.
Bayliss’ teams’ accomplishments speak for themselves. Not only has he led the Irish to 19 NCAA Championship berths in the past 20 seasons (Notre Dame is one of 11 schools that can state that claim) but he also has helped his teams post 10 top-20 finishes in that time. Bayliss’ squads have advanced to the round-of-16 in the NCAA tournament on seven occasions, including a quarterfinal appearance in 1993 and a trip to the NCAA title match in 1992. On 16 occasions, his teams have won conference titles. He has led his team to 14 BIG EAST Conference championships in his 22 seasons.
Co-Director: Jay Louderback Head Women’s Tennis Coach - UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME
When Jay Louderback took over as women’s tennis head coach at Notre Dame in the fall of 1989, he inherited a program that had competed on the Division I level for just four years and had never participated in the NCAA tournament or earned a national ranking. As he enters his 23rd season at the helm, Louderback has turned Notre Dame into one of the premier women’s tennis programs in the nation.
The Irish have finished in the national top 30 in each of the last 19 seasons and have earned 18 berths to the NCAA Championships in that span. Notre Dame has captured 17 conference titles during Louderback’s tenure and has reached the round of 16 or further in the NCAA tournament on nine occasions, including three appearances in the quarterfinals (1996, 2006, 2007) and two consecutive trips to the semifinals (2009, 2010).

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.

Although open to all skill levels, the national camp will offer a more intensive training curriculum with advanced concepts including instruction on match play strategies and tactics for both singles and doubles, mental preparation and composure training, point building / rally progressions, strength and speed training, and high intensity drill work.
