The Vida Tennis Advantage GIRLS camp is designed to empower and develop girls in tennis and everyday life. Girls can come together and have a training environment dedicated to their needs. Players will train with like minded people and be guided by a team who understand female development both on and off the tennis court.
Tennis, and sport in general, teach life skills such as persistence, teamwork, goal setting, leadership, and character development. These traits also transfer from tennis court to academics, family life, and the work setting.
Peer and environmental support influence girls’ enjoyment and learning of tennis. Girls develop important social relationships through the physical activity of tennis, both with their training partners and with their adult physical activity leaders, but girls may suffer negative psychological consequences if their developmental needs for feedback and encouragement are not considered by instructors or coaches.
This camp is designed to give girls a great positive life and tennis experience, delivered by a team who understand their needs.
