Rod Schroeder played No. 1 singles and doubles for the University of Illinois and was named to the All Big Ten team. In 1979, he established his own Rod Schroeder Tennis Academy (RSTA) in metropolitan Chicago. His summer camp program at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin, employs the same teaching methods used at his academy: a "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.
