WTEF Development - Red/Orange/Green/Yellow (ROGY) Camp
Directed by Coach Matthew Townes
Performance Camp - Directed by Coach Agathe Belibi
Our RED camp introduces 4-8 year-old children to the game of tennis through a variety of fun, skill-building activities. Players learn the fundamental stroke production and the “ABC’s” of tennis (Agility, Balance and Coordination). Participants will use appropriate sized racquets, balls and play on 36ft courts. Each week will have its own character development theme and will incorporate both on court and off court education.
Our ORANGE camp creates an environment for juniors 8-10 where emphasis is placed on improving their tennis, character and overall athleticism. Each week will have its own character development theme. Throughout the week, the children will work on developing technique, accuracy, movement and tactics on a 60’ court. This camp is recommended for those players who are Orange 1or Orange 2 level based on United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) Youth Progression.
Our GREEN/YELLOW camp is designed for those juniors ages 11-17 who are developing their games and express an interest in playing Junior Team tennis, middle and high school tennis and/or playing entry level tournaments. Player’s proficiency will be assessed daily by coaches regarding transitioning players from green ball to yellow ball. Mornings will focus on drill-based coaching, while afternoons will be centered around match play giving campers opportunities to practice their game under the guidance of coaches.
Performance Camp will provide students with a rigorous European academy-style training
regimen focused around proper footwork, stroke technique, as well as optimal court positioning,
explosive speed, efficient movement, and recovery. Performance Camp will employ an intensive
drill-based approach to develop sustained rally tolerance and strategic shot selection. Students
will apply their training in situational point and match play. Stamina, endurance, physical as well
as mental toughness will also be a major component of the training. On-court training may be
supplemented with lecture/classroom instruction including reviewing professional match footage.
Students may also be asked to keep a training/match player development journal.
Enrollment in Performance Camp will be based on an evaluation by Coach Belibi and her staff after which students may be selected to participate in Coach Matt's Yellow Ball Development Camp.
