Pingry High Performance Tennis Camp
Camp at a Glance
Pingry Psychology Teacher and Mental Performance Coach, Brandyn Fisher, brings his American Sport Psychology (ASP) tennis camps to Basking Ridge for Summer 2019. Over the last few years, American Sport Psychology has hosted High Performance training camps for elite tennis players across the country, with stops in Miami (FL), Tampa (FL), Boca Raton (FL), Dallas (TX), Morristown (NJ), Washington D.C., and New York City (NY). These camps are aimed at providing elite training in multiple performance domains including 1) on-court training, 2) mental performance training, 3) fitness/strength and conditioning, and 4) nutrition and recovery. Taking place over the course of a few days to a few weeks, the ASPire Elite team educates players and their families, providing expert guidance and mentorship along the way.
ASP Elite camps are built on four primary Performance Pillars:
Mental Performance Domain:
ASP coaches will teach players the best practices of mental training via “chalk talks” (i.e., video analysis sessions), as well as individual meetings aimed at identifying a player’s strengths and opportunities for continued development.
Emotional Performance Domain:
Tied in closely with a player’s mental performance, the emotional performance domain emphasizes a professional approach to competition and training. This “mindset” is at the core of a player’s development and will be identified via on-court sessions and off-court player meetings. Areas for continued development will be addressed (i.e., performance routines, relaxation methods). At the center of this domain is situational point play, with an emphasis on match-specific principles (i.e., finishing games, momentum control, quick/delayed pressure).
Physical Performance Domain:
Proven on and off court training methods that include tempo training, strength and conditioning, and stretching/recovery strategies. This domain is based on building the player’s knowledge of how to prepare and execute a complete training program.
Professional Performance Domain:
Nutrition, tournament scheduling, and overall player development planning are key factors often overlooked or underutilized, even at an elite level. Players will learn how to schedule competition based on a training periodization process. Each player will receive an example tournament scheduling block relevant to their current level.
End of Camp Player Assessment
Each player will be provided with a full player assessment for review at the conclusion of the training camp. These assessments will include information related to each performance domain, along with recommendations for further development.
1. ACES – Evaluation and Player Development Planning
Coaches will provide every player with a full Player Development Plan, along with daily evaluations in each performance area. To this end, camp attendees will gain a free subscription to the ACES Tennis App, built for high performance tennis players. ACES provides parents, players, and coaches with unilateral access to a player’s plan, ensuring that everyone is on the same page.
2. Technique – Video Analysis
Each player will participate in a complete video analysis of technique. This is NOT a technique altering camp. This portion is meant to provide feedback on technical strengths and current deficiencies. We believe in providing the primary coach with suggestions on how to continue to develop a player’s technical parameters.
3. Tennis Tracker – Match Tracking Software
ASPire Elite coaches track sets and matches played during the camp. This includes information on a player’s tendencies, patterns, percentages, and a full breakdown of aggressive margin. Additionally, players will get to see their serve and return patterns via location charting. This information is also shared throughout the week in classroom sessions aimed at building awareness and understanding of high percentage tennis.
