The Prior Lake High School Boys' and Girls' Varsity Tennis Coach will be offering two sessions of summer camps. A major focus of the camps will be to introduce the proper fundamentals of tennis and to have fun playing the game. Coach Priest has over 20 years of coaching experience which includes coaching at the University of Minnesota and as Player Development Director for the USTA.
Level 1 Intermediate/Middle School - This group will focus on all major fundamentals of the game of tennis. Learning the proper way to hit groundstrokes, volleys, and serves will be covered. An overall understanding of the game (scoring, sportsmanship, and rules) will also be covered. This level is for the intermediate middle school player. (Ages 9-13)
Level 2 Advanced/JV+Varsity - This group will emphasize much of the same concepts as Level 1 but will also work more on strategy of the game. This group is designed for the upper level JV and Varsity players or those who strive to be playing Varsity within the next year. (JV/Varsity skill level)
Little Hitters - (Ages 6-8) - This group will work on agility and balance and also focus on the ability to rally and learn basic knowledge of the game of tennis.
*All groups meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for 3 weeks in each session. We will use Mondays for makeup classes due to rainouts.
