Learn + Play
ASM Camps utilize the ASM Signature customized teaching approach in a fun, safe learning environment. We understand that kids don't do well with solely pure instruction so we've combined our teaching with fun tennis-centered games and competitive weekly singles and double matches with prizes. Camps are capped at 30 campers per session to ensure that each child is getting the attention and instruction that he or she deserves.
Boys & Girls ages 5 - 17, Beginner - Advanced
Campers will be grouped by age and skill level in Red Ball (5-8 years of age), Orange Ball (8-10 years of age), Green Ball (10-12 years of age) or Development (ages 8-17). Development is for USTA team players or USTA individual players level intermediate through advanced.
