Boys and Girls
Join BYU men's tennis head coach Brad Pearce for a week of incredible tennis! Learn strategies, tactics and technique through drills, on-court instruction and singles and doubles play.
Players will receive instruction on the fundamentals of all major strokes and will practice these strokes through feeding, live-ball drilling and competitive match-play. Students will hone their skills as they have an opportunity to advance through each of five stations that are set up to practice every aspect of their game. They will also have an opportunity to improve their fitness and participate in competitive off-court games that focus on enhancing their flexibility through stretching, agility and endurance. In addition, they will play competitive matches in both singles and doubles against opponents from other teams so they also get an opportunity of feeling a part of a team and learning how to deal with the realities of team play.
This is excellent preparation for anyone interested in participating in high school tennis or preparing to compete in USTA leagues and/or tournaments. On Friday of each week, all participants will play in an individual singles tournament against players that are at their level. Trophies are awarded for the winners and runner-ups, but all will play multiple matches. The camp concludes after the tournament on Friday with an awards ceremony. The ceremony begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m. for those making family or travel plans.
Open to any individual that meets age requirement.
Coach Pearce will be conducting seminars on goal setting and other topics from his recently published book, "Life Lessons from Centre Court at Wimbledon: Teaching Your Children to Become the Best They Can Be"
