Team building skills are taught one time per week through group games and skill activities. No experience necessary!

Tennis

Activity will emphasize basics through concentration on serves, footwork, forehand and backhand groundstrokes, slices, volleys, topspin, lob, and drop shots.

This camp is designed to teach and develop volleyball skills for all experience levels. Beginner players will learn key fundamental skills such as passing, setting, serving, and basic court movement.
