Parent to Parent: Tennis Camp
OK mom and dad, summer is right around the corner and it's time to start thinking about camp! In tonight's Parent to Parent, we take a look at a summer camp kids call an ace! Here's Lynn Martinez.
WSVN -- Kids are serving it up at Turnberry Isle in Aventura!
From little tikes to teens, players of all ages are encouraged to hit the court!
Gustavo Oribe: "We have all the levels from the recreational side to the pre-competitive and competitive side."
The 10-week summer program keeps kids active all day long!
Gustavo Oribe: "We try and create a program for them where we touch on every single aspect of their game."
And who better to learn from than one of the world's former top players?
Guillermo Canas was a top ten player for years.
Guillermo Canas: "I played with Federer, I beat him twice, no three times. I played with Nadal."
Canas retired from professional tennis in 2009 and now shares his experience on the court with the kids.
Guillermo Canas: "In the beginning, you can see if they have the potential to be professional."
14-year-old Tomas picked up a racquet at a young age.
Tomas Kuskunov: "I've been playing since I was 7."
His game is improving and his goal is to be number 1 one day. But he says anyone can enjoy the game!
Tomas Kuskunov: "It's an amazing sport, really fun, you get physically fit."
Leo is here from Mexico City. The 16-year-old loves playing tennis.
Leonardo Ortega: "I like the energy it has, I like pretty much everything about it."
He is excited about camp this summer and sees tennis in his future.
Leonardo Ortega: "Get a scholarship in a good college and if I can I will try to go pro."
But whether your child is a potential pro or just likes to hit the ball, this camp is a win-win!
The idea is that they have fun, that's the number one thing, that they feel the connection with the sport."
The tennis program starts in June and runs through August.
