AZCUI, LORING INVITE BOYS & GIRLS FOR 2017 hoosier tennis camp!!

First-year Indiana Tennis Coach Ramiro Azcui and legendary Hoosier Tennis Coach Lin Loring are teaming up for camp this summer, and they're making some exciting changes!

BOYS AND GIRLS WELCOME in 2017!

Due to popular demand, Azcui and Loring will welcome boys and girls to camp this summer! Boys and girls will have the chance to learn from one of the nation's most experienced coaching staffs on the beautiful Indiana University campus. In addition, campers will receive SIX DAYS of instruction, unlike virtually all other college tennis camps that are five days.    

TWO CURRICULA TO CHOOSE FROM!

Boys and Girls can choose the type of camp training that best fits their needs. Instead of utilizing the cookie cutter approach that most camps do, Azcui and Loring are offering campers the chance to pick an option that best suits them.

Campers can choose from:
 
DEVELOPMENTAL AND STRATEGY CAMP

This curriculum is for beginning, intermediate and typical high school players. There will be a strong emphasis on correcting grips,  stroke patterns and footwork. Players will be separated by ability level and age. Singles strategy, doubles strategy, and tennis exercises will be covered. The emphasis for the campers will be on stroke correction and development.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE CAMP

This camp is geared toward USTA Tournament level players and offers an intense training program. Our camp is perfectly situated between all the different Team Cup matches being held and the Midwest Closed, and we will prorate the cost of camp by a half day for those that have to show up late or leave early because of these events. Unless asked, we will make no major stroke or grip corrections with this group. We assume that these campers all have private coaches back home.

Our goal is to prepare these players for tournament play. Our coaches have coached at seven different NCAA Division I colleges. Between them, they have prepared more than 300 players for the NCAA Championships. We will drill, play matches with other campers and our college players, talk advanced strategy and emphasize mental preparation and awareness.

We will also have a college recruiting seminar. Learn from IU Head Coach  Ramiro Azcui as well as former IU Head Coach Lin Loring, the winningest coach in Division I tennis history. Topics will include: NCAA recruiting rules, the college recruiting process, the difference between NCAA Division I, II and III and how to find a college tennis scholarship to match your ability and ranking.

Just a reminder, Indiana Tennis Campers stay in an air-conditioned sorority house across the street from the Varsity Tennis Courts. We also have fun evening activities that are well supervised and include swimming/water slides at Bryan Park Pool, movies at the College Hall and bowling at the Indiana Memorial Union.

Register on-line now to take advantage of this great program. If you have additional questions E-Mail Us.

We hope to see you in camp!

At Indiana.

He has been publicly acknowledged for his coaching, winning the Midwest Assistant Coach of the Year Award in 1997, 1999 and 2004 and was also awarded the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year in 2004.

IU's women's tennis teams are regular winners of the Herbert Cup, given to the IU Athletics program with the highest GPA each semester since 2007-08.

He directed all clinics, leagues, tournaments and programming for the adult members as well as worked with junior players.

Additional Teaching Staff

In addition to the college coaches, remaining camp staff includes USPTA and PTR certified teaching professionals and many Division I players. While NCAA rules prevent us from listing our college staff, most of last year's college players will be returning.

THE FACILITIES

OUTDOOR AND INDOOR COURTS

The camp will use the ten Indiana University Varsity Tennis Courts. In case of rain the camp will use the adjacent Indiana University Tennis Center.

HOUSING AND ROOMMATE REQUESTS

Players will be housed at the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house located a short walk from the tennis complex. The house will provide the campers with a superior living environment to regular school dormitories. There will be more room, more privacy and better 24 hour supervision by the tennis staff. Meals are served three times a day. Campers who request a specific roommate will be placed with that camper. Please be sure that both campers request each other when they register.

Campers who do not request a roommate will be placed with someone close to their age. Last year about 40% of the campers did not have a roommate request.

The majority of the sorority house rooms are doubles, but some triples and quads are available. Please know that if a triple or quad is requested, we cannot guarantee that one will be available.

MEDICAL

A certified athletic trainer will be in attendance to care for minor injuries and attend to all athletic training needs. I.U. Health Center services will also be available to each camper on a fee for service basis. Parents must complete the consent form on the linked page with the application.

SWIMMING

Campers will have the option of using IU's Olympic-size outdoor pool in the afternoons when they are not on the court. It is well supervised for recreational swimming.
