CAMP OVERVIEW

GBT, an assembled system of systems, is fact-based instruction for long-term player development and is supported by tennis enthusiasts and experts all over the world. Key components of the GBT are skill testing, documentation of development, core information based on scientific principles, peer teaching, and the building of a championship culture.

In conjunction with tennis instruction, campers will take part in daily NJTL Life Skills lessons. Tennis racquets, equipment, balls, and water will be provided. Campers may bring their own racquet, towel, snack, and water. Periodic breaks will be taken.

Make-up policy

If your camper is signed up for camp on a weekly basis and misses a day, the camper may attend a day of another week as a makeup. Unfortunately, there are no make up days offered for Summer Pass participants.
