The Tim Gray Elite Camp at Brown University is proud to offer a can’t-miss opportunity for the player looking to take their game to the next level. The goal of the camp is to continue your development as a player while immersing you in and exposing you to a competitive college tennis environment. While technique will be evaluated and addressed, the aim of the camp is to focus on how to play and how best to prepare for college tennis.
Having coached at all NCAA levels, from NCAA Division III to high level Division I in the Southeastern Conference, coach Tim Gray brings a wealth of experience that will help bring your game to the next level. Boasting four national championships (one team and three individual), an SEC Western Division Championship and numerous All-American selections, Coach Gray will help guide his campers through a proven process of court tactics and strategies. As the Head Men’s Tennis Coach at Brown University, he understands and appreciates the variety of college academic and tennis opportunities available to junior players and has designed a camp program geared to sharing his experiences and wisdom.
In addition to the Brown coaching staff, top men’s college coaches from around the country will staff the Tim Gray Elite Prospect Camp and also share their unique perspectives and experiences on men’s college tennis. They will assist Coach Gray in a high intensity three-day program designed for top junior boys. All coaches will motivate and educate our campers on how to best prepare for college tennis.
All technique and drill work takes place in a tactical framework. Players will be exposed to all aspects of college tennis training including the following topics:
- Movement training emphasizing footwork patterns and balance
- Court Position Possibilities
- First Strike Tennis; emphasis on serve and forehand
- Point Building & Capitalizing
- College Style Doubles
- Mental Toughness Training
Evening sessions are small group discussions or seminars devoted to team building and leadership, differences between college and junior tennis, and the recruiting process for all NCAA divisions. We will also discuss academic qualifications and SAT/ACT strategies for high school students interested in highly selective colleges and universities.
With Brown University’s historic campus as a backdrop, campers have a college experience on and off the courts. Campers stay in Brown University dorms and eat all meals in Brown dining halls with tennis instruction taking place on Brown’s eight-court Varsity Tennis Complex and Brown’s four-court indoor facility housed in the Pizzitola Athletic Center. All twelve courts are US Open-style and tennis instructions is guaranteed rain or shine.
