Nike Tennis Camps is proud to host a new camp at Jackson State University for Summer 2013! This summer camp is for young players to come and vastly improve their tennis game, work hard, make new friends and have a lot of fun. Our goal is to give campers the opportunity to hit thousands of balls, improve their technique, and be challenged by some of the best players in their peer group.

This summer, choose a summer camp with the ultimate combination of athletics and fun at the Nike Tennis Camp at Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi. Our junior tennis camps combine technical tennis instruction and drilling from a superb coaching staff as well as supervised match play. Come individually or come with your teammates. Get better this summer!

Highlights Include

  • Daily on-court instruction from JSU head men's and women's coach, Scott Pennington, and his experienced staff
  • We offer a "10 and Under Tennis" program, featuring smaller courts and lighter, lower-bouncing balls
  • 5-6 hours of tennis daily with a 6:1 student to teacher ratio
  • Every camper will receive a Nike Tennis Camp t-shirt

 

Program
(Camp Code: TNXRJI)
This year we are offering one week of Full Day (8:30am-4:30pm) and Half Day (8:30am-11:30am) for kids ages 9-18 of all skill levels. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

Tournament Training and High School Programs:
In addition to the "All Skills" program, we are offering a Tournament Training program geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness as well as a High School program, provided for players ages 13-18 currently on their high school team and wanting to move up the ladder or those planning on making the high school team.

10 and Under Tennis:
We are also offering a “10 and Under Tennis” (Half Day Camp) program, featuring the USTA’s successful  new teaching format. This is an exciting new way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are  low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts. For more information on “10 and Under Tennis” programs nationwide, Click Hereto check out the USTA website.

Travel
Nike Tennis Camp does not provide any transportation to/from camp from airport, train stations or bus depots. If you fly into camp, we recommend that you fly into the Waterloo Regional Airport and schedule a taxi or shuttle from the airport to camp.

If you have a camper arriving by air and is deemed an “unaccompanied minor” by the airlines and must be met by a camp staff or shuttle company employee, there may be a fee that needs to be paid in advance of camp. You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp. Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to provide camper’s flight and shuttle information.

Registration Packet
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
