HUSKER TENNIS CAMP!
Join us for an all new tennis camp experience at the University of Nebraska! The Nebraska tennis camp will be directed by Head Men’s Tennis Coach Sean Maymi. Open to boys and girls ages 7-18 of all skill levels, the Huskers tennis camp will offer young players an opportunity to get more involved with playing tennis.
We break the campers into small instructional groups of similar age and ability so each child is working in a group that is commensurate with their experience level. We tailor each program to the level of the players. Beginners would get a heavier dose of swing technique and fundamentals, while more advanced players would have more focus on strategy, point building and percentage tennis etc.
The Huskers Tennis Camps are a premier camp for young players who strive to learn the game, improve their skills and/or participate in middle school, high school, USTA team tennis or tournaments.

- Camp demo program with all the latest Wilson rackets.
- Raffle and prizes for all campers.

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.

MEET YOUR COACHES
Head Men’s Tennis Coach
The University of Nebraska
A rising star in collegiate coaching with strong connections to the Big Ten, Florida and California, Sean Maymi was announced as the new men’s tennis coach at the University of Nebraska by Athletic Director Bill Moos on June 13, 2018. Maymi (pronounced MY-mee) has extensive ties to the Big Ten Conference in two successful stints as the associate head coach at Michigan. He helped the Wolverines to eight NCAA Tournament appearances in his nine seasons as an assistant in Ann Arbor. In 2008, Maymi was named the ITA Midwest Regional Coach of the Year after assisting Michigan’s run to the NCAA Tournament round of 16 and a No. 16 final national ranking.
This past season, Maymi helped guide Michigan back to the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament again, as the Wolverines finished No. 14 in the final ITA rankings after a 22-6 season that included an 8-2 Big Ten Conference mark.
