Junior Summer Tennis Camps

Building on our philosophy that the development of children is the foundation to everything we do, we make every effort to optimize the Summer and Holiday Camp experience. To ensure a truly unique experience for children between the ages of 4-17-years-old, parents can feel assured that their child(ren) will have a memorable camp. The Summer Camp is held from June to September each year and run for 12 one-week sessions with half, daily and weekly options to select from. Holiday Camps are held throughout the year.

The camps offered by Elite Racquet Sports provide a unique learning program for all participants. For every camp, we maintain a small ratio of participants to coaches. This allows each participant to have the personalized attention they need during the camp, thus providing an enabling environment for the children to learn, apply and improve their tennis. The camps, cater for a range of levels, from those just starting out to the more seasoned tournament tennis player.

The camps are also structured to ensure the participants receive a holistic experience. A combination of specific skilled tennis training along with creative outlets and games to build confidence, self-esteem and self-discovery, is an organic approach we apply. This provides the space for every to meet new friends, practice new skills learned daily, challenge one self and most importantly, have fun.

Other sports like volleyball, badminton and yoga will soon be a new feature in the camps. At Elite Racquet Sports, we believe in applying new and emerging trends in sports and fitness into our programs. We have introduced a Mindfulness and Meditation segment, bringing an added dimension to the camp experience. The participants learn about the importance of breathing, stretching and mental focus that can be applied to their tennis game and other sports they participate in. Through the emphasis of control and visualization, this component has been proven to enhance the performance of many elite athletes.

At our camps, the focus is not solely on tennis. Each afternoon, the younger participants have the option of competing in tennis matches against other campers or the opportunity to demonstrate their creative talents through arts and crafts. All participants also prepare for a weekly talent show, where the coaches take a break and sit back to witness the amazing talents your child(ren) will showcase.

For participants based at The Ritz-Carlton, Marina Del Rey, a fieldtrip next door, is also something to look forward to. Once a week, participants have the option to visit the neighborhood fire station. They get to see, not only what it’s like being a firefighter but also gain insights to the hard work the firefighters put in every day. This fieldtrip is something we hope that will not only be educational for the participants but also to see how when hard work is applied in sports like tennis, they too can be the best they can be in life.

The safety of all children participating in our camps is a priority for Elite Racquet Sports. To facilitate this, we implement and reinforce some safety guidelines for all to follow. This not only ensures the safety of their environment and play areas but also the respect for fellow participants, coaches and property.

We strive for the best in our Summer and Holiday Camps, and the memories your child(ren) experience will be lasting and impressionable, enough to impact their lives. Our goal is to provide a memorable camp experience by continuously working to improve our programs. One method we have adopted is a participatory approach, where parents can provide feedback to us based on their child’s feedback.
