Our campers will be grouped by age to tailor the learning experience in golf, tennis, and pickleball. Ages will be grouped as followed; 5–7-year-old, 8–10-year-old, and 11–14-year-old, with each group led by two skilled camp counselors. Our counselors are committed to ensuring that every camper enjoys an unforgettable summer experience!

GOLF

Learn the essentials of golf, from putting grip to green care. Hone distance and direction skills with drills, emphasizing control over aim and speed. Perfect your setup using alignment sticks and master the art of low, rolling shots. Focus on fundamentals, including grip, aim, stance, and posture, with targeted practice sessions for irons and woods.

Inject fun into learning with creative pitch shot exercises, such as hitting foam golf balls into Schu the Shark's mouth. Each week concludes with a "Fun Day" featuring engaging contests at every station where campers accumulate points and choose a prize at the end.

TENNIS & PICKLEBALL

Key features of our activities include a paramount emphasis on safety both on and off the court, specialized instructional groups for personalized attention, and engaging drills with daily teaching progressions.

All activities are meticulously crafted by Lisa Hart, a distinguished figure in the tennis world. As a former UNL tennis player and the current Head Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach at Concordia, Lisa brings a wealth of experience and expertise to ensure your child's development and enjoyment on the court.

Players will receive a fun and exciting introduction to tennis and pickleball. Players will learn the body movements that will help them develop into tennis and pickleball players.

Players will learn the basics of keeping score in tennis and pickleball.
 
Ages 8-10

We will incorporate fun drills, exercises and games that will focus on developing good balance and ball tracking skills. Kids will learn how to identify the correct grip and hand placement for forehands, backhands and volleys. We will make sure players understand the importance of rallying and will work on developing ball control (accuracy and depth).  We will also ensure players understand how to keep score in both tennis and pickleball and know how to play games in both.
 
Ages 11-14

We will incorporate exciting drills, games and activities to ensure all of our players can rally back and forth and can play tennis and pickleball matches on their own.  We will make sure our players know the technique of all the strokes and understand the use of the different strokes for offense and defense.  We will also make sure everyone knows how to hit the ball on the run and we will continue to advance eye hand coordination skills.
