Parents and Young Tennis Players
Thank you for considering the AFA Sports Camps for your tennis needs this summer! Tennis is a lifetime sport that is played and enjoyed by both young and old. We hope you will join us for one or more of our camp sessions!
The first camp session is designed for the beginner and intermediate players (ages 8-18), and the second camp session is more for experienced/ competitive players (ages 12-18). New this year, session 3 will consist of a coaches camp for local area high school and club coaches to improve their teaching skills. Immediately following the coaches' camp, we will host a 3-day Adult-only session, 6:00-8:00pm) for ages 18 and up and all ability levels. Our goal is for everyone to come away from camp with a new appreciation for the game of tennis.
Our staff will cover stroke production and match play, along with warm-up exercises, stretching and conditioning. A video analysis and evaluation will be provided for each camper. We want everyone to have fun while learning to play this great game. Each camper will get to play a lot of competitive games in both singles and doubles.
An experienced and talented staff is the backbone of the AFA Tennis Camp. Tennis was one of the original sports camps (some 30 years ago) and still remains a favorite here at the Air Force Academy. The instructors working the camp include teaching professionals, collegiate and former collegiate players who have been All-Americans or competed on the professional tour. The campers will be divided into three groups: beginners, intermediate and advanced to get the benefit of specialized instruction.
Workout gear should include tennis racquet, t-shirt, shorts, skirts or skorts, sweats, hat, sunscreen and a non-marking tennis court shoe.
Each day of Sessions 1 and 2, the camp runs from 8:30am-4:30pm with the exception of Friday which is a half day camp with the closing ceremonies starting at approximately 11:00am. The campers will be free to leave immediately following the ceremony.
Again, thank you for considering the AFA Tennis Camp. We are confident it will be a rewarding experience for all participating tennis players and will contribute to their future success and enjoyment in tennis.
In accordance with NCAA guidelines, all AFA Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by specified number, age grade level and/or gender of its participants.
