Camp Description
Tennis I-Preparing for Middle School competition
This tennis course prepares players for competition at the middle school level where many players are introduced to competitive tennis. Emphasis for this course is placed upon acquiring the fundamental skills of stance, grip, contact point, follow through and recovery, as well as the basic strokes of volleys, ground strokes, service and service returns . What is unique about Coach Frank’s method is that greater emphasis is placed upon the non dominant hand in setting up strokes for the dominant hand. In addition players begin to recognize where defense ends and offense begins, and where offense ends and defense begins, two important distinctions that enable players to be more fully prepared for their next stroke.
