Camp Objectives

Young athletes work best and learn the most in an environment that is personal and has the flexibility to tailor instruction to address individual needs. Univ. of Denver Tennis camp uses small group instruction combined with individual attention to form the cornerstone of camp curriculum. Court time includes a variety of activities designed to keep campers motivated while they improve fundamentals. Skill work and discussions are balanced with match play, offering each player the opportunity to work on tactics and employ the mental prepartion skills they are learning. This camp is not operated as a clinic where campers stay overnight; a variety of fun social and reacreational activities planned for off-court times give campers a chance to get to know each other, the counselors and coaches, and to form long-lasting friendships.
