SUMMER CAMPS


2020 SUMMER CAMPS


This summer, ORYA is working with ORHS coaches, ORYA volunteers and other sports professionals to provide more summer sports opportunities. Instead of sitting on the couch get your player involved in any of our summer offerings. Offerings below will focus on fun and development while giving players something different to do during the day!

ORYA summer camps will be used as fundraising initiatives. ORYA looks forward to providing fun and developmentally appropriate camp programs that improve our ability to offer quality programming during the regular seasons. Camps will be posted as they are created.

    Following a successful spring program ORYA and USTA Tennis in the Parks have teamed up again to provide some summer camp opportunities. USTA will provide a certified coach to offer our players with age appropriate instruction. Each new player will receive a free racquet and shirt as part of their player fee – courtesy of USTA’s NETGENERATION program.
