The camp with coach Jacob was a blast. He was a great teacher and would always take the time to answer any questions we had about our technique. My swing has already improved since the summer time.

I had 2 campers in the Elite camp and in was a fantastic time for both of them. They really appreciated the time and tips that were given to them. I would like to thank the staff for their care, humor and tennis confidence he gave to my children. Thanks.
