Tennis Camp 

Update: Tennis Tots is the enrollment option for campers ages 4-5 yrs old. Running the same weeks as below. The max capacity for this age group is very small and may sellout quickly.
Special Notes:
1. There will be NO afternoon session on Fridays (therefore All Day camp ends at 12pm and PM only campers do not report)
2. If any registrant combines both AM & PM TENNIS camp enrollments for the same week, the entire registration could be forfeit!
For example: If the ALL DAY option is unavailable, you cannot create an all day schedule by selecting AM Tennis & PM Tennis.
3. Maximum camper age is now 13 years old.

Eligibility:
Boys and Girls, 4–13 years old; must be at least 4 years old by start of camp. 
*There will be a restriction of only 8 campers, aged 4-5, allowed for either the morning or afternoon hours (this total includes All Day campers)
**Older campers and esp. those with a bit more tennis experience, may find the PM session affords more opportunity for point/game play.

We believe tennis is one of the greatest sports out there...one that can be played for a lifetime! If your child shows any interest at all, our camp presents a perfect opportunity for he/she to build on their aptitude and gain confidence.

The St. Albans Tennis Camp offers a fun, high-quality instruction program to participants of varying ages and abilities. Our tennis instructors will focus on teaching tennis techniques and strategies, building strength and endurance, improving agility, and enhancing players’ coordination and speed. Players will also work on improving their mental toughness. Our coaches will use various teaching techniques, such as one-on-one feedback, video analysis, and special drills.>

As soon as our campers arrive, they will be greeted with enthusiasm and positive energy ready to take on the day. Campers will be evaluated and divided into different groups based on previous tennis experience and age, assuring that each performance level receives the most appropriate and effective coaching.  Instruction will be available throughout the camp day, even though in the PM session, opportunities to play matches or focus on game play (for suitable players) is a focus. We encourage our campers to sign up for multiple weeks to increase their opportunities to improve their tennis skills. 
 
Facilities:
Tennis campers should report to Zone B (the Herman Entry Plaza) on Pilgrim Road, from which they'll be escorted to the Tennis Center at camp time.
