TEAM USA Camps

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

At least one TEAM USA Sectional Camp will be 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 Managers and Coaches Commissions to select the players invited to these camps, as well as partner with 8 developmental coaches from the section to work the camps. There also is a lead coach provided from outside the section to lead the camp. Each primary coach, parent and player receives a player evaluation based on the objectives of the camp as well as a Dartfish Media page developed to help with their overall development.

Ages 11-13:
Team USA Regional Camps
Three-day camps | Multi-Sectional

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 each Section as well as the USTA National Coaches to select players for each regional camp. These are three-day camps for 6-8 players, that have a mental skills, character quality, paren-tal resource and coaching collaboration component. Each player’s primary coach is invited to attend the camp with their player and is offered a stipend to do so.

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

Team USA National Camps are camps that take place at USTA National Campus. These are three-day camps for 20-24 players (boys & girls).
