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.
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.
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.
Before & After Video, $75: Parents do not always get the chance to witness their child’s improvements, so this video will allow you to see your child’s technical progression from the first to the last day. This professional piece will become a necessary and useful tool to share with other coaches and programs. Videos will be shot on the child’s first day of their first registered session and the last day of their last registered session. Allow two weeks for video editing and then final product will be sent via email. Check out a sample Before & After Video by clicking here.
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.
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.
