1 Day ID Showcase Camp


Denison University is excited to announce its upcoming 1-day ID Showcase camp for boys and girls ages 12-18. This exclusive camp is designed for young tennis enthusiasts who aspire to become collegiate players and want to immerse themselves in a collegiate tennis environment.

Led by Head Men’s Tennis Coach David Schilling and Head Women’s Tennis Coach Jamie Scott, this camp is tailored to provide participants with a comprehensive experience focused on player development. With a clear emphasis on key areas of the game that are essential for growth, this camp offers specialized training and guidance to help players elevate their skills.


Our Brand New ID Showcase camp will focus on the collegiate tennis experience. Part showcase camp, part college prep – the camp will feature high-intensity training in the morning that replicates a collegiate practice. Singles and Doubles emphasis and strategy will be featured with talks about high percentage play and work on understanding point progressions. The afternoon will focus on showcase matches featuring both singles and doubles.

A lunch break will feature a seminar on “Data Analytics in College Tennis” and a player/coach Q&A.

            Per NCAA rules, our sports camps are open to all entrants. Enrollment is limited only by age, grade level, gender, and capacity restrictions as specified by each camp.

            Q: What type of campers attend this camp?

            Our camps are open to all levels of tennis players. We have players from absolute beginner to high school / Tournament level.

            We design our camps to teach the technical basics and love of the game to the beginning player, to introduce strategical decision making, and more advanced technique to the intermediate player, while building on their current stroke production, and to put the advanced players into pressured, strategical and competitive situations.

            Q. What is the ratio of campers to staff?

            Groups will be divided into small instructional groups of approximately 5-6: 1 camper to coach. Some camps/sessions offer higher or lower ratios based on the curriculum.

            Q. If the camp is full, do you have a waiting list?

            To be added to the waitlist, please register here (there is no fee to join the waitlist).

            Q. Should I purchase camp/cancellation insurance?

            We recommend all families purchase camp/cancellation insurance if they are concerned about the investment they are making in the camp. Kids do get injured, sick and family plans change from the time of registration leading up to the camp. Camp insurance allows peace of mind and has many benefits in any of these events.
