Beginning in 2011, a paper Health Questionnaire and Physical Form is no longer required. All health-related questions will be completed online during the registration process. Tennis Camp is physically challenging. Camp participants are expected to consult their physicians before enrolling and must have adequate health insurance to meet all medical needs during camp. Please inform Coach Shackelford of all allergies, daily medications, and any previous injuries that require some modification or supervision.
All recreational swim opportunities are closely supervised with lifeguards. Let us know if your child cannot swim or if you have special concerns about their ability as a swimmer. We typically have very few injuries or accidents at camp. Most can be prevented.
- Sunburn The students are outside most of the day. Our staff encourages them to wear sunscreen daily and reapply after lunch. Please supply them with sunscreen and a hat.
- Blisters on feet and hands Most often caused by the dramatic increase in physical activity. Breaking in brand new leather shoes at the start of camp is often the culprit. Help us to condition your child by gradually increasing their on court participation prior to the start of camp.
- Bike spills We have scraped knees or hands about once a week at camp from inexperienced riders caught up in the excitement of their new found freedom. If you plan to send your child with a bike, please be sure the bike is safe and well fit to the rider, tires and brakes have been checked, and a helmet is worn at all times. Your child should know safety rules and both of you should be confident in their ability to ride independently.
