Coach Weiss, Coach Lynch, and their senior staff will address the need for safety, supervision, and accident prevention. Complete attention is given to make your child’s week at camp safe and enjoyable.

Evaluation

We will evaluate the camper's playing level early in the week to make sure your son or daughter is placed in the appropriate group for his/her maximum improvement. Campers are evaluated Sunday evening from 5:30-7 p.m. At the end of the session all campers will know their group designation. This evaluation allows for our camp to run smoothly and to know exactly where our campers are at all times. Day campers must attend this important session.

Training

The Tiger Tennis Camp accepts campers from the ages of 9-17 years old. Our on-court instruction is divided into groups meeting the needs of the beginner to the tournament player:

  • Beginner-Intermediate: Addresses the fundamentals and basic skills for the camper just getting started to the player demonstrating consistent ground strokes and serves.
  • Intermediate-Advanced: For players who have competed in junior tournaments or has some experience in junior or high school team competition.
  • Advanced: Designed for the serious tennis competitor looking to take his or her game to the next level. This group reflects the strong tournament player generally ranked in the state, region, or national rankings.

** We will evaluate the camper's playing level early in the week to make sure your son or daughter is placed in the best six-person group for his/her maximum improvement.

Day Camp

This year Tiger Tennis Camp will again take day campers in addition to the overnight campers who reside in the dormitory. Day campers should arrive between 8:15-8:30am. They will eat lunch in the cafeteria with all campers. They may be picked up between 4:45-5p.m.

Daily Schedules

Drill Court Sessions

The on-court drill sessions give the camper the necessary repetition for solid stroke production while the professional staff critiques court position, technique, footwork and movement to the ball. Each day the camper has the opportunity to hit every stroke in the game while being taught by top professionals and instructors of the Tiger Tennis Camp staff.

Guest Speakers

Each day, your son or daughter will be instructed in areas such as nutrition, strength and conditioning, sportsmanship, mental training, on-court strategies, and much more. Guest speakers will include Clemson staff who work firsthand with the collegiate teams. This will give the campers a full experience of the Tiger way.

Match Play

The fundamentals taught during on-court instruction, drill training, and speaker sessions are put into practice in daily match/point play. Point play provides the beginner and intermediate player an excellent opportunity to learn how to compete. For the tournament player match play is essential for the student's success in the sport

Evening Activities

Our staff has organized group activities each evening. Some of the planned events include Olympic Night, Movie Night and a Campers Talent Show. As with our entire schedule, evening activities are closely supervised by our professional staff to ensure a wholesome and safe environment.

Closing Ceremonies

All parents are invited to attend our closing ceremony on Thursday afternoon. The closing ceremony will take place at the Clemson Tennis Center between 2:00-3:30pm. Please be sure to join us as we celebrate our week at Tiger Tennis Camp.
