Some top Florida juniors were part of a USTA camp experience at the USTA National Campus in Orlando last weekend when a Cross Sectional Camp featured players from the USTA Florida, USTA Southern, USTA Southern California, and USTA Texas sections.

Four boys and four girls age 13-14 from each section participated in drill sessions and match play, along with education sessions from a nutritionist, a sports psychologist and a professional stringer. Two coaches from each section also participated in the camp lasting from Friday-Sunday.

“Three of the eight coaches were Top 100 in the world, and the majority of the camp was match play,” said USTA Florida Player Development Coordinator Andy Gladstone. “Florida also had a special team dinner at the USTA Florida building with a tour by USTA Florida Director of Competitive Tennis Jason Gilbert.”

USTA Player Development camps provide players with training and coaching from the elite USTA coaching staff along with USTA section coaches who have proven coaching success. The camps are offered to inspire, motivate and to assist players in reaching their highest level. Players with excellent work ethic, commitment, talent and attitude are encouraged to participate.

“On behalf of USTA Player Development, thank you everyone for coming to the HOAT (Home of American Tennis),” said USTA Coordinator of Player ID and Development Vivian Li. “It was great to see these juniors train, compete, and receive feedback from wonderful coaches this weekend.”
