Who attends a Recreational Coach Workshop?

These workshops are an excellent primer for new coaches as well as a valuable refresher course for those with teaching experience but who seek more current methods and effective tools. Past attendees include:

• Parents seeking the basics in coaching and organizing team tennis
• Park and Recreation instructors, high school, and seasonal coaches
• Coaches teaching kids and adults who are new to the game
• Current players seeking part-time teaching jobs

Upon completion of the six-hour workshop, attendees will:

• Become eligible for membership as a PTR Recreational Coach and in USPTA as a Developmental Coach. (Please note that these are educational memberships, not teaching certifications. Also, the USTA does not certify teaching professionals. If you are interested in becoming a certified teaching pro, please contact the PTR or USPTA.)
• Be able to effectively run entry level groups and teams
• Receive access to the latest in transition ball technology and additional coaching resources

Top trainers. Top results.

Our faculty are all certified by the PTR and/or USPTA and have received special training from the USTA.
