Southern Juniors Selected to Attend USTA High Performance Camp

June 6, 2007 02:06 PM

The Southern Section would like to congratulate the following players that have been selected to participate in the USTA High Performance Camp. Samantha Crawford, Alpharetta, GA, and Sydney Campbell, Franklin, TN are among the few elite athletes participating in the camp. The training will take place in Carson, CA from June 5th-8th.

The USTA High Performance program is designed to actively assist in the development of the next group of top male and female American players. To accomplish this goal, we are committed to working closely with parents, personal coaches and the various private academies in an effort to help produce a multitude of players that will compete on the ATP and WTA tour and ultimately become world class American champions.

Our program assists with the development of players in following ways:

  • Bring our best players together to practice and play matches against each other
  • Provide direct or supplemental coaching based on the player's developmental unit/need
  • Develop a working relationship with personal coaches
  • Impress upon the player the importance of physical fitness and off-court training
  • Impress upon the player the importance of developing mental toughness
  • Provide video analysis to improve technical aspects of the player's game
  • Provide speakers on various topics in order to educate players and parents
  • Provide play-off opportunities for wild cards
  • Assist players with the proper balance of scheduling the appropriate level of tournaments (including exposure to international and pro circuit competition at a younger age.)
