Who attends a Recreational Coach Workshop?

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

  • Receive access to the latest in transition ball technology and additional coaching resources

Our faculty are all certified by the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and/or USPTA and have received special training from the USTA.

The USTA assigns trainers based on reasonable time and travel requirements. Once a trainer is assigned to a workshop, he or she will work with the host site director to ensure all appropriate arrangements are made for a successful workshop. Workshops must have a minimum of 20 participants.
