CHECK-IN

During the each day of camp, campers should report to the front desk.

SKILL WORK

With no more than a 5:1 student/pro ratio, 4:1 Red Ball, campers are organized onto separate courts according to their age and ability. Once on the appropriate court, campers are given instruction on tennis fundamentals, and run drills to practice these techniques with the help of DVTA tennis professionals. We use low compression tennis balls, each age group has their own color, size and weight to help our students achieve success. Clinics are always kept up-beat ensuring that campers are learning athletic skills and technique, while still having fun.

MATCH PLAY

At this age, match play is a stepping stone, preparing students to transition from practicing tennis in a group setting, to playing tennis in more competitive arena such as tournaments or team matches.

In this stress free zone, campers apply techniques taught during group instruction on 36ft, 60ft, and 78ft courts using low compression balls as needed. As they become more comfortable executing proper technique, we begin to add in other components of playing in competitive matches, such as keeping score and calling balls out of bounds.

At the end of the day, matches are used to bring to light good technique and sportsmanship during matches

LUNCH

This year, lunches will be provided in our Lounge by Pizzi’s. Each camper will submit an order for the week. or, if dropping in, one can order at the desk upon arrival. Lunches are only available to full day campers.

SWIMMING

Campers may have the option of swimming outdoor every Tuesday and Thursday at Eastern University’s pool. Along with DVTA counselors, lifeguard supervision is provided during each visit to the pool by Eastern University.

A swim test is required every Tuesday to ensure safety. We are still waiting to hear from Eastern regarding access to their pool this summer.

ADDITIONAL SPORTS

Though we are mainly tennis, DVTA feels a better athlete is one who experiences many sports to enhance one’s athleticism. Late morning and early afternoon, our campers will experience soccer, basketball, kickball, Pickleball, dodgeball (with Foam Balls)
