After 25 years of working with Rod Schroeder, Brady Lindsley takes over this summer as full-time director, with plans to continues Schoreder's teaching and methodology. Lindsley himself played college tennis at Carthage then took over as head men's and women's coach, a position he's held for some 20 years. He coached the Red Men to eight CCIW titles and took them to seven NCAA championship and the women to 3 CCIW titles and 3 NCAA championships. Like Schoreder before him, he employs the same "Stop ‘n Go" system that simultaneously focuses on technique and strategy by concentrating on both how to hit the ball and where.
The program also works on how to be a better competitor and incorporates three tournaments into each of the two-week sessions. Those are supplemented by daily talks and demonstrations about competition, pressure, and mental toughness. He and his staff also teach proper court manners and good sportsmanship.
Boys and girls ages 9 to 18 are welcome and stay in modern rooms in lakeside residence halls and eat all their meals in a cafeteria that offers food-court style options and views of Lake Michigan. Beyond tennis, there are lounges with pool tables, table tennis, card games, and video games and the program includes swimming and organized softball, basketball, volleyball and soccer games each evening.
