Now in our second year, the Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camps at the University of Tennessee is quickly gaining the reputation as a camp for serious learning and serious fun. Featuring the coaching staffs of both the men’s and women’s tennis teams at UT, the camp offers an incredible amount of teaching and camp experience.

Each camper receives personal attention, advanced teaching techniques, intensive drill work, and game/match play daily. Campers are broken into small instructional groups with those of similar age., ability and experience 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.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CAMP INCLUDE

  • Comprehensive instructional program with daily teaching progressions
  • Small instructional groups to ensure individual attention
  • Safety prioritized on and off court
  • Camp demo program with all the latest Wilson rackets
  • Great Wilson Raffle and prizes for all campers

MORE INFORMATION

Camp Types

Our traditional tennis camps are designed to focus on the fundamentals and swing techniques of the modern tennis strokes. We tailor the instruction to the skill level and experience of each level of player. 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.

Note: A skills evaluation is done on the first day of camp and we will assign students to small instructional groups with kids of similar age, ability and experience level. Players will continue to be evaluated throughout the week and coaches will move kids into situations to push them and help ensure they are in a comfortable learning environment.

MEET YOUR COACHES

Co-Director:

Ryan Sachire

Head Men’s Tennis Coach

University of Notre Dame

One of the top players in the history of the University of Notre Dame men’s tennis program, Ryan Sachire became the seventh head coach in the 91-year history of the program July 1, 2013 after serving two seasons as an assistant coach and five as the associate head coach after returning home to the Golden Dome in the summer of 2006.

Sachire ended his professional career in 2005 and was an assistant at Baylor in 2005-06, helping the Bears reach the semifinals of the NCAA Championship. A three-time singles All-American with the Irish, he replaced former Irish assistant Todd Doebler, who was hired as the head coach at Penn State.

Sachire’s effect on the Irish took absolutely no time to take hold. In his first season at Notre Dame, the Irish reached the NCAA round-of-16 for the second straight year, finished with the most victories in a single-season since 1980-81 and ended the campaign ranked sixth in the country (the highest ranking to close a season since being ranked third at the completion of the 1991-92 season). Sachire also was instrumental in the performance of Stephen Bass, who not only became the 18th All-American in Notre Dame men’s tennis history, but also captured the John Van Nostrand Memorial Award, which provides a stipend to the top senior player embarking on a professional career (an award Sachire captured in 2000).

Alison Silverio

Head Women’s Tennis Coach

University of Notre Dame

Alison Silverio, a national champion in her playing days at Georgia Tech and the architect of one of the nation’s top program turnarounds at Oregon, has been named women’s tennis head coach at the University of Notre Dame. Vice President and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick announced the appointment of Silverio on Friday, July 6.

Her debut season saw Oregon among the ITA team rankings for the longest stretch since 2009, while she inked a top-15 recruiting class as her first signing class in Eugene. Season two saw the Ducks go 11-11 while starting league play 3-0, the best start in Pac-12 action since 2004.

In her third season at Oregon, Silverio’s Ducks posted their best overall record (14-11) in 11 years and top conference mark (6-4) in 13 seasons. After reaching the Pac-12 semifinals via an upset of UCLA, the Ducks earned their first NCAA tournament bid in a decade.

Silverio’s head coaching debut at Oregon followed assistant coaching stints in the ACC at Georgia Tech, her alma mater, and NC State. As an assistant at Georgia Tech, Silverio helped assemble the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class in 2012, along with the No. 6 signing class in 2013. The 2013 season also saw her help guide the nation’s top-ranked doubles team, which won the ITA National Indoor Doubles Championship and the ITA Regional Doubles title, while capping back-to-back NCAA Sweet 16 appearances for the Yellow Jackets.

Co-Director:

Greg Andrews

Assistant Men’s Tennis Coach

University of Notre Dame

Andrews returns to an Irish program of which he was a two-time captain just three seasons ago. During his career, Andrews reached a No. 20 national ranking in singles and a No. 7 national ranking in doubles. He ranks second in program history in dual doubles wins (68); third in overall doubles wins (93); fifth in dual singles wins (77) and wins at No. 1 singles (38); and seventh in all-time singles wins (113).

Andrews was a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year (2012 and 2013) and, as a junior, was selected as the BIG EAST Championship Most Outstanding Player after leading the Irish to their final championship title in that conference. He was a four-time all-conference selection (three BIG EAST, one Atlantic Coast Conference), was a 2013 CoSIDA Academic All-American and the winner of the 2014 National ITA/Arthur Ashe Jr. Sportsmanship and Leadership Award.
