Rec Coaches

USTA Recreational Coaches

Training for coaches and instructors
A Recreational Coach Workshop is an interactive, on-court training program designed for tennis teachers and coaches working with players at the recreational level.
Taught by a specially trained, certified teaching professional, this active 6-hour session covers:

• Teaching large groups
• The games-based approach to coaching
• Running effective team practices
• Games and drills every coach should know

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:

• Be eligible for the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) Developmental Coach Classification
• Be able to effectively run entry level groups and teams
• Receive access to the latest in transition ball technology and additional coaching resources
