* please note we are in the process of changing over our website and name to “BEYOND CAMPS”
The 2020 BEYOND CAMPS (previously known as the Michael Filipek Tennis & Sports Academy) has added a third location to host its Tennis Day & Overnight camps – the beautiful campus of Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT, located just 1-1.5 hours from NYC; Fairfield University is one of the finest colleges in New England. Founder and Director Michael Filipek will utilize decades of experience and planning to make each camper’s experience productive and enjoyable. Campers will play and practice on six USTA championship tennis courts and will have use of Fairfield U’s beautiful campus and excellent facilities.
This tennis camp is uniquely designed to maximize the experience for young players of all levels, ages 7-17 for day campers and 9-17 for overnight campers. Each day will consist of at least four to five hours of on court training, with the remainder of the day dedicated to off court / mental training, video analysis and fitness training. This year we will be introducing chess as part of our curriculum and once again overnight campers will have the option to participate in many fun evening activities including two off campus activities (off campus activities will be an extra fee). Every camper will receive training in all aspects of the game, including stroke technique, footwork, strategy, fitness, and match play. From beginners to tournament players, all players will receive a curriculum to enhance their development. With a variety of elective and evening activities, our campers will have the right balance to feel inspired and motivated.
For competitive tournament players and High School team members, the BEYOND CAMPS day and overnight camp is designed to not only reach but go beyond their goals. This is accomplished by providing focus on the main factors that many young competitive players lack: match play experience, point construction, strategy, mental and emotional control.
At BEYOND CAMPS we teach players what to expect during competition and how to deal with each scenario that may arise on court during a match. Through practice matches, match charting, mental/emotional training and situational drills, players will come away from the camp with an understanding of what is necessary to maximize their potential.
