The European Tennis Academy has over 20 years of experience in running successful youth camps. Tricks and tips are taught to manage one's thoughts in a helpful way during matches. ETA youth camps transform the participants' match performance lastingly and substantially. During the camp week the participants will receive coaching both for technical and mental performance.
Licensed games and Davis Cup
At the official licensed games you can not only put into practice what you have learned, but also improve your ranking! ETA youth tennis camps are registered as official tournaments at Swiss Tennis and every participant can work to improve his ranking in 3 to 4 licensed games during the camp week. On Thursday/Friday there will be a Davis Cup play as the finale.
Parents are part of the game
Parents are introduced to the camp's approach and strategy before the end of the camp. Before departure at the end, a joint analysis takes place with the camp leader, the participants and their parents. In this way what you have learned will stay with you even after the camp.
