Because this is one time in the year that your child has the time to really spend time focusing on one activity. A half day tennis camp is 3 hrs of tennis a day and equals 15 hours a week!! Just to give you a idea, our fall program is 15 weeks long and a typical student will play 1 hour of tennis a week for 15 weeks in our AB program that is from August thru December.
The curriculum : In one week of tennis camp, we at Nirus Tennis Academy teach the kids correct stance, grip, swings, footwork, follow-through of forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads and serves. Almost the entire curriculum of an entire Fall Program is covered in 1 week of camp!!! Now, is one week of camp enough to learn this sport? Haha, sadly no.
Is one week of advanced Math tuition enough to learn Math? I guess not.
So, what’s ideal? Ideal is a minimum of 3-4 weeks of camp depending on age spaced apart, so there is no fatigue and burn out. If the child is older than 10, then 4-6 are fine. Younger than 7, I’d suggest 3. But it will also depend on the child and his/her aptitude. In the off camp weeks, sign up for a private lesson or a regular tennis class to keep the momentum going.
For advanced players or intermediate players, we are able to focus on specialty shots like slice, short angles, passing shorts, drop shots, return of serves, approach shots and way more…. We are able to get them to play friendly matches, games and points. Kids develop camaraderie , friendship, discipline and a chance to learn a wonderful sport of a lifetime. We have also added a Math component, to keep their brains working sharp over the summer months. Twice a week, a Math tutor will bring worksheets for kids based on their grade for full day campers. Math will be for 45 minutes only during the lunch hour.
Keeping fit :Our camp begins with a warm up of running, stretching, hand-eye coordination exercises. We then move on to stroke correction , drills and coaching and progress onto match play. Afternoon session begins with a warm-up but more focus is on match play and games and doubles. We also have a no-bully policy. Kids are made aware that our camps are a warm friendly place that accepts all kids and will not tolerate any bullying of any kind. So sign up for the camps at www.nirustennis.com now and see the the difference!!!
