High Performance Camp, Aug 21-24
Announcing the Winslow Tennis Academy’s High Performance Tennis Camp for Competitive Players Ages 9-14, scheduled for Monday Aug 21 through Thursday Aug 24, 9am-1pm at Harding Park in El Cerrito.
Camp is rigorous, fun and motivating, and is targeted for a select group of youngsters – those who've been playing tennis and taking lessons regularly for at least two or three years, who started playing competitively within the past one or two years, and are looking to raise their game to a higher level. For players ages 9-12, they might play on their club junior team or in USTA-sanctioned junior tournaments; for players ages 13 and 14, camp is for incoming freshmen and/or lower ranked members of their high school varsity teams who have not played in tournaments.
We emphasize: (a) drills to work on their technique, shot-making, footwork and spacing, and using their sources of power, including specific shots such as hitting on the rise, slice approach shot, topspin lobs, and more; (b) working on 1st and 2nd serves; (c) singles and doubles competition for improving consistency, ability to react and respond, decision-making, and confidence; learning point tactics and match management; and (d) speed, strength and conditioning work.
Schedule: 9am-1pm, Mon-Thurs, with free early drop-off beginning at 8:30am. Price per player: $225 FT; $30/hour PT. (Sibling discounts provided.) To register your player or for questions, contact:
Alexander Winslow, Winslow Tennis Academy; USPTA-certified teaching professional; Member, Wilson USPTA Advisory Staff Program; former head coach, Bishop O’Dowd Men’s and Women’s Tennis; and former nationally ranked junior and varsity starting player, San Jose State University.
