The 10th Annual ASM at St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School (SSSAS) Summer Tennis Camp Program runs weekly from July 13 - August 14, 2020 for ages 5 - 15. It is located on the shaded tennis courts at the SSSAS Lower school campus. Program activities include over 20 hours of tennis instruction, friendly and supportive instructors, on-court demos and drills, indoor activities/workshops (ex. tie dying, drawing, group games etc), competitive matches with prizes, tennis-centered on-court games, camp t-shirt, written evaluations for each camper, and award ceremony.
COVID-19 Update: Unfortunately, the SSSAS campus will be closed for the weeks of July 6 - 10 and August 17 - 21. We will work to reschedule those enrolled for those weeks. If you are unable or uncomfortable with switching to a different week, you will receive a full refund in the form of a gift card valid for any of our programs (future camps, private lessons, tournaments, etc.) up to one year.

Court Size: 36’
At this stage players will learn the basics of the game - How to score, rally, and serve, as well as understanding how to win and lose points. Advanced red ball players will begin to learn technical awareness and court tactics. Red ball players at this level are able to begin matches on the smaller court sizes.
(ages 8 - 10)
Court Size: 60’
At this stage, players have already learned the basic techniques of the game and are ready to develop more consistency and specific technique in their stokes. With developments in physical control and coordination, players will be challenged to cover the larger court size and to direct the ball away from the opponent. More focus will be placed on learning the tactics of the game, anticipating ball movements, and incorporating ball spin. Serving and return of serve are covered at a more advanced level.
(ages 10 - 12)
Court Size: 78’
At this stage, players will be getting used to the increased physical demands of covering a full-sized court while still using slower moving green balls. Players will be instructed in more advanced use of angles, spin, depth control, attacking and defending, and moving the opponent around the court. Additionally, the player will learn the tactic of learning to gauge the opponent's strengths and weaknesses.
