TEAM USA Camps

Ages 10-13:
Team USA Sectional Camps
Two-day camps | Local


Team USA Sectional Camps are held each year in all 17 of the USTA Sections. These two-day camps for 24 players (12 girls/12 boys) have clear objectives aligned with the camp objectives of regional and national camps. Player ID and Development works closely with the Section PD staff and Coaches Commissions to select the players invited to these camps. Eight developmental coaches from the section work each camp. A lead faculty coach is provided from outside the section to lead the camp. Each primary coach, parent and player receives feedback based on the objectives of the camp as well as a Dart?sh Media page to help with their overall development.

 

Ages 11-13:
Team USA Regional Camps

Three-day camps | Multi-Sectional


These three-day camps for 6-8 players have athletic development, mental skills components, parent information sessions and coach collaboration.
Team USA Regional camps are multi-sectional camps that take place at USTA Training Center East or Training Center West. Player ID and Development works closely with USTA National Coaches to select players for each regional camp. Each player’s primary coach is invited to attend the camp with their player and is offered a stipend to do so. Each primary coach, parent and player receives feedback based on the objectives of the camp as well as a Dart?sh Media page to help their technical development.

 

Ages 12-14:
Team USA National Camps
Three- to Four-Day Camps | National


Team USA National Camps are camps that take place at the USTA National Campus. These three- to four-day camps for 20-24 players (boys & girls) provide opportunities for former professional players as well as our top developmental coaches to engage with our younger generation of players, primary coaches and parents. Player ID and Development works closely with the USTA National Coaches to select players for each national camp.
