Tennis Camp for 2021
Alfred University typically offers many sports camps during the summer, both residential and day. For 2021, and with coronavirus safety precautions in mind, we are pleased to announce that several camps will be available on-campus for in-person instruction in a day camp, non-residential format. And while all proper safety protocols will be maintained, there's little doubt your camper will be thrilled with being active and learning alongside their peers once again!
Monday July 5th through Friday July 9th
Application Deadline: July 4th
This camp, held on the Alfred University Tennis Courts, is for student athletes entering grades 6 through 12. Training at the beginner through advanced levels will be provided and will include:
- Fundamental instruction in stroke technique, footwork and court strategy
- Technique training including serve, forehand, backhand and volley
- A great opportunity for kids to have fun as they improve their stroke production and enhance their understanding of the game of tennis.
Jordan Crouch is the 15th Head Coach in men's tennis history and the 14th Head Coach in women's tennis history. He led both the men's and women's teams to the Empire 8 Championship tournament during the 2018-19 academic year - marking the first time both teams made it to the Empire 8 Championships in program history. Aside from coaching, Crouch also serves as the Life Skills Coordinate for AU student-athletes.
Crouch was named the Head Men’s and & Women’s Tennis Coach and Life Skills Coordinator after a national search that began in June of 2018.
Crouch comes to AU following a four-year tennis career at Houghton College, a fellow member of the Empire 8 Conference. He was a three-time Empire All-Conference honoree, earning Second Team honors in singles and doubles in 2017-18 as well as Second Team singles in 2016-17. During his senior campaign he posted a 9-3 overall singles record, including a 7-1 record in Empire 8 play, helping the Highlanders to the Empire 8 Championship match for the first time in program history. He added to his win total, going 9-4 in doubles play during his senior year.
Further information, including a detailed camp schedule, dress and attire, supplies and other requirements will be sent upon acceptance.
The cost is $100. A $50 deposit is required.
