Mini Basketball Game – we all know how basketball can be a very fun way to develop teamwork, passing skills, balance and agility! The kids love this game, and we love to run it in our multi-sport Nike Summer Camps as a way to enhance tennis learning. 

 

Mini Football Passing Game – we use the incredible fun that football can create and modify the rules so it’s safe and enjoyable (no tackling!). Kids can improve their catching and throwing skills, alongside teamwork and team mentality with this fantastic game, it’s all sweat and all fun!  

 

Mini Rugby Passing Game – we use the incredible fun that rugby can create and modify the rules so it’s safe and enjoyable (no tackling). Kids can improve their catching and throwing skills, alongside teamwork and team mentality with this fantastic game, it’s all sweat and all fun!  

 

Baseball with soft foam tennis balls – This is a modality we use for outdoors, with weather permitting. Nothing spells brain strategy plus teamwork like baseball! We create the atmosphere; your kids enjoy and play! Great for hand-eye coordination, so it’s a great complement for tennis. 

 

Plastic Hockey Sticks and softballs - This is a modality we use for outdoors, with weather permitting. This is a fantastic complement for tennis, maneuvering the hockey stick creates a great positive transfer to racquet sports, and let’s not even mention how much fun this can be on grass, we have hockey goals that complement the experience and plenty of space outside for kids to practice these skills. 

 

Soccer with nets – This is one of the most popular multi-sport components we have. Kids love soccer and soccer loves kids! The footwork necessary to handle the ball really helps tennis, and the teamwork mentality is a bonus!
