2017 Summer Camp June 19 - September 01 (11 weeks)
Ed Tripp Tennis Camp is held at Westleigh Recreation Club.
We offer a 10 and Under Camp, a Junior Camp for ages 10-15 and a Tournament Training Camp for high school players.

10 and Under Camp

This is an upbeat program designed to teach tennis while having fun and building confidence and self- esteem. This camp is based on the USTA 10 and under curriculum and equipment which includes balls that bounce lower and slower plus specially designed nets. Campers are divided into groups of six or less based on their age and ability.  We do our best to honor friendship requests.

Our program is run by Ed Tripp, USPTA, who has been the head pro at Westleigh for more than 24 years.  Ed received his bachelor’s degree from Ferris State University with a major in Professional Tennis Management.  He competed on Ferris State University’s nationally ranked tennis team as well as on the Junior Davis Cup team in Michigan.  Ed is widely known in this area for the enthusiasm and knowledge he brings to the game of tennis for players at all levels. He even received the Mid-Atlantic Unsung Hero award from USTA Magazine.

A typical day at camp starts with warm up and stroke production. At 11:00  we do “stroke of the day”  where campers focus on a highlighted area in a fun, yet instructive way.  Midday is an hour lunch and supervised swim period followed by an afternoon of match play and skill building tennis camp games.  On very hot days we may spend extra time at the pool.  Campers are grouped each Monday morning based on skill level and friendship requests.

Campers may switch groups as ability changes.  All of our instructors are fun, positive, great teachers who have an excellent rapport with kids and have been with Ed for many years.  Many are previous campers.

What to bring: All campers must bring a water bottle, towel, bathing suit, sunscreen and lunch.  Campers may bring money for the vending machines at lunch time. Every Friday is “Fun Friday” where campers will get a pizza lunch and have special games. Please pack a drink for Fridays.

Make-ups and rain days: Camp is held rain or shine. We do have an indoor clubhouse where games will be played. If a camper cannot attend a particular day, a make-up can be scheduled with 24 hour advance notice.

**CIT Program**

The Counselor-In Training (CIT) position is a leadership training program for students age 15 and older and entering 10th grade and above.  The CIT program provides an opportunity to develop leadership and recreation skills while providing support to the camp program. A CIT supports all camp activities. This program involves working directly with children by helping them to enjoy and feel successful in camp. It is a responsible position that requires a serious commitment and a cooperative and positive attitude towards the other CITs and staff. A successful CIT needs to be sensitive to the needs of the children and demonstrate dependability and maturity at all times. CITs must be on time and will be asked to leave the program if the Director feels that they are not living up the the required expectations.

The cost of the CIT program is $80 per week. All CITs must be pre-approved by Ed Tripp and be on a high school team or enrolled in one of Ed’s clinics. There will be an informational meeting prior to the start of camp. Limit of 4 CIT’s per week.

Extended Care

Daily: 8am – 9am and 3pm – 6pm
Campers can be dropped off as early as 8:00am and picked up as late as 6:00pm.  Counselors and/or extended care staff, age 15 or older, will be on hand to supervise children in extended care.  Cost is $10 per hour.
