03/16/11 - White Plains, NY – The 2008 U.S. Olympic coach, Rodney Harmon, will be returning this summer to teach at Camp A.C.E., the annual NJTL Regional Leadership camp run by USTA Eastern.
Camp A.C.E., which stands for Achieving through Coaching and Education, will be held July 24-30 at Ramapo College of New Jersey. The overnight camp provides players ages 14-17 a week of daily tennis instruction, college admissions counseling, and community activities, geared to helping students continue their success after graduation.
Linda Mann, Managing Director of Community Tennis Development for USTA Eastern, said Harmon took the camp to a new level last year.
“Rodney is an outstanding instructor, who truly cares about the campers, not just as players, but as people,” said Mann. “We are fortunate to have him return to the camp this year, and give students the tools they need to succeed on the court and throughout their lives.”
This year marks the 13th anniversary of the camp. In addition to yoga, swimming and daily tennis instruction, this year’s camp will feature classes in fitness, nutrition, business etiquette, financial literacy and college preparation and admissions counseling.
Harmon coached the US tennis team at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He also coached the University of Miami men’s tennis team and reached the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open.
