frequently asked questions
What should my child bring?
Each child should bring a hat, water bottle, snacks, lunch and sunscreen (if full-day). We strongly encourage tennis shoes, but we do allow other athletic shoes if you are comfortable with that.
Do they need to have their own racquet?
A tennis racquet is required; however, if your child does not have one, we have Dunlop racquets that can be purchased from Mike.
Are snacks or lunch provided for full-day programs?
We will not be providing food or drinks. Full-day campers are to bring their own peanut-free lunch. We encourage drinking water instead of sugary juices and pop.
What happens when it rains?
In case of rain during the summer camps, your child will stay at the clubhouse, and supervised indoor activities will be provided.
What type of activities will my child be participating in during the camp?
We are a tennis-specific academy; therefore, all activities from the warm-up until the end of camp are geared towards learning tennis fundamentals. All campers warm up at the beginning by running and stretching. Depending on the level of play, they will do drills and engage in games geared towards improving their level of play. More advanced students will play matches and learn strategies on how to construct points.
What about early drop-off or late pick-up? (Summer Camp)
Early drop off at 7:00 a.m. and late pick up, up to 6:00 p.m. is provided at a rate of $15/hour. Please register here.
