FALLS CHURCH, Va., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- 4 Star Camps (http://www.4starcamps.com) announced today that they will be partnering with Stony Brook University, a NCAA Division I college on Long Island, NY, to provide residential and day tennis camps starting in 2010. Coach Gary Glassman and Justin Drzal have directed this residential tennis camp for the past three summers and will continue to be the summer camp directors. Justin directed 4 Star's Tennis Camp at the University of Virginia for 10 years prior to joining Gary at Stony Brook.
"We are very excited to be working with Gary and reuniting with Justin," said Mitch Popple, 4 Star Camps' Executive Director. "We've been searching for an expansion opportunity, and you can't ask for a better location than Long Island, NY. We are a summer camp company whose entire focus is on our campers and operating high-quality camp experiences. This is why both Gary and I strongly believe this was a natural fit."
Coach Glassman said, "I was looking for a company to partner with that would allow my coaches and me to focus on what we enjoy the most, the students and their tennis. 4 Star Camps really impressed me with their knowledge of the summer camping business, enthusiasm for creating great programming and attention to detail. They are so flexible and provided us with a number of ideas on how to grow the camp to reach more people. Already, 4 Star Camps has reduced the weekly rates to keep it affordable while also adding a new High School Players Tennis Camp."
There will be two tennis programs offered over the course of three weeks - the High School Players Tennis Camp from July 6 - 9 and the traditional Junior Tennis Camp for ages 9 - 18 the weeks of July 11 and July 18. Both programs utilize Stony Brook's 12 outdoor tennis courts along with their dorms and dining halls.
