The 2018 Illinois 10 and Under Combine will be hosted Sunday, May 20th from 1:00-4:00 at Naperville Tennis Club. The purpose of the combine is to identify the best and brightest athletes aged 7-10 to participate in a set of three USTA Early Development Camps (EDCs). EDCs are the first step in the USTA Player Development Pathway and are designed to give young players a foundation for developing their game using Orange Ball Tennis.


The player combine will consist of 6 stations of fun drills in which the kids will participate with coaches' instruction. While this will be an evaluative process for the coaches, it will also be fun for the players! It is COMPLETELY FREE for every child between the ages of 7-10. Additionally, your child should be able to serve and rally in order for them to get the most out of the experience.

The combine will take place at
Naperville Tennis Club
1011 E. Benton Avenue
Naperville, IL 60540


After the Combine, 12-16 players will be selected for 3 additional camps. Those camps will cost a total of $200 and each camp will have a competition piece such as JTT or a Youth Progression tournament associated with it.


The dates for the 3 supplemental camps are listed below:

Sunday, June 24th from 9:00am-1:00pm

Sunday, July 22nd from 9:00am-1:00pm

Sunday, August 12th from 9:00am-1:00pm
