Participants in the after school camp get 8 focused 45 Minute or 1-hour lessons that meet once a week after school in the gym or multipurpose room. All equipment needed to run the camp is provided, and the coach to player ratio is kept close to 8:1. The number of participants depends on the size of the gym. Each session focuses on a specific shot taught in the QuickStart method. The sessions are broken down into an intro activity, fitness component, lesson focus, and games. The camp uses stations to ensure that kids are moving the whole time and are not standing in line. All Instructors and Site Directors have attended a QuickStart Tennis training session and have submitted to a background check prior to starting work.
