Player Development

Early Development Camps (EDCs)

 

Early Development Camps (EDCs) – both Orange and Green ball have recently been added to the USTA Player Development and Team USA junior player development pathway.

EDCs are a half day, high level, local training opportunity for 7 to 11-year-olds. The same group of players attend every camp, providing a team environment with coaches trained specifically on Orange and Green ball tennis. USTA Colorado is excited to offer the EDC’s as a first step on the competitive Player Development pathway. 

This unique program includes a coach and parent education component. Our diverse group of coaches represent tennis programs from all over the state bringing their energy, experience and passion for the game to share with the campers. Using curriculum created by USTA National specifically for these players — athletic skills, technique and tactics will be finely honed.  These camps are designed for highly skilled juniors and a selection process is utilized. Players need to commit to attending ALL three camps.

EDC Player Selections
 

July 16, 2017 / Gates Tennis Center

A ‘Skills Challenge’ will be used to ensure that players meet the desired developmental criteria.  Selections will be based on a player’s individual level of development - their tennis skills as well as their athletic skills; agility, balance, coordination, strength and speed. Players will participate in off court athletic skills, on court drills and point play.  The atmosphere will be both fun and encouraging.

  • Orange Ball (7 to young 10-year-olds): 12:30pm–3pm
  • Green Ball (9 to young 11-year-olds):  2:30pm–5pm
