We hope to provide a positive, learning environment in which the camper can learn fundamentals, individual skills, and competitive skills if they want to advance their game to the next competitive level. Additionally, we want to expose the campers to instructors and players who have been successful on the NAIA, Division I, and professional level. The camper's growth as a player and person is important to us while spending the week at Wildcat Tennis Camp.
