*Before camp begins, all campers MUST be fully toilet trained and have graduated from training underwear. Please see Landon Summer’s Toilet-Trained Policy and definition. Landon Summer reserves the right to dismiss campers who demonstrate that they are not toilet-trained to the standards of the policy. 

Mini Spartans provides a comprehensive introduction to tennis with multiple stations designed to develop strength, coordination, control, and confidence. Campers are exposed to all of the skills they will need to accelerate their tennis learning. The main goal is to improve their ability to jump, throw, swing, run, and build hand-eye coordination in a playful and fun way where they exercise and learn. 

Campers will begin their day with a warm-up drill, work on agility through a variety of obstacle courses and participate in relay races before jumping into skill-based activities and games. 

Rainy Day Activities: 

World-class tennis programs always include classroom education. Strategy and mental acuity are best taught through conversation, blackboard visualization, and indoor testing. Part of our curriculum is to use rain days to improve our players’ tennis IQ. Our indoor activities are designed to further expand players’ skill sets.  

  • The History of Tennis: Learning about the history of tennis helps to expand each player’s appreciation of the game. We may play some movies covering the origin of the game or the path to success for some tennis greats such as Serena Williams and others.  

  • Indoor Activities: We have created over 50 exercises designed to develop and master motor skills, mental acuity, and focus as well as their understanding of the rules of the game.  

NOTE: Depending on the amount of rain and the strength of the sun after a storm, it can take up to 1 ½ hours to get the courts safe for play. 

Tennis Balls: 

One of the cornerstones of the modern tennis system is the series of slow tennis balls designed to bounce lower and slower than typical regulation yellow tennis balls. The theory behind this design difference is that by tailoring the ball to the player, he/she is better able to master his/her swing resulting in longer rallies and more opportunities to hit the ball. 

  • Red – This is the slowest and softest ball and is comprised of foam. The main goal of a red tennis ball is to build players' confidence and skill while allowing them to focus on racquet handling, movement, coordination, and, above all, fun.  

  • Orange – Players with some tennis experience use the slower speed of orange tennis balls to focus on and develop basic shot techniques. 

  • Green – Significantly faster than the red and orange tennis balls, players use the green tennis balls to continue to develop technique and maximize rally time. 

  • Blue – The soft property of the blue tennis balls blended with their true yellow bounce properties make them the perfect transition to the next level of play.  

  • Yellow – The official standard for tennis ball performance, yellow tennis balls are used for tournament play.  

Electives: 

Electives are designed to be targeted and customized for each player’s needs. It gives our directors a chance to elaborate in detail on topics that are pertinent to participants’ interests and areas of weakness.
