Marysville Parks, Culture and Recreation partnered with tennis coach Daniel Brzovic to offer multiple tennis camps for a wide range of youth on Aug. 5-8.
Marysville Parks put together three separate levels to cover ages ranging from five to 17, including Red Ball, Green Ball and Yellow Ball camps. Red Ball Camp covered the youngest tennis players, 5-7, and focused on the very basics of the sport including footwork, grip and rules. Green Ball Camp was the next level up as they worked with all youth beginners with competitive drills and strategies to elevate their game. Finally, Yellow Ball Camp worked with the intermediate players as they focused on improving their fundamentals and strategies for singles and doubles play.
“The four-day camp is a very condensed amount of time, and the point of it is to give them little tools to move forward with each day that we’re out here. Each day builds on the next and we focus on the basics so that they can have fun with the sport,” said Coach Brzovic.
Coach Brzovic has a long history with tennis as he began playing in middle school to high school and finally at the collegiate level. After his own playing career, he started coaching and is currently the Head Coach at Mountlake Terrace High School as well as the Basha Tennis Program at Forestcrest.
“It doesn’t matter what skill level you are at; tennis is always fun. It’s a great lifelong sport. There is so much depth to it, and no matter how long you have been playing you feel like there is still so much more to learn,” said Coach Brzovic.
