Youth Spring Tennis  League 

Philosophy: The league will offer an exciting tennis experience with an emphasis on fun, skill development, tactics and competition.  Concentration will be placed on establishing basic skills such as forehand, backhand, net play and building upon these skills through staff demonstration and instruction.  The league will emphasize technique tactics in an intense training environment.  The camp will be divided by age so the content of the league as well as the intensity will be structured to meet the varying needs of the different participants.  All participants should wear comfortable clothing for tennis, tennis racquet (if possible) and a water bottle.
