SCTA’s Community Tennis Development Workshop Creates New Traditions in Orange County http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/community-tennis/sctas-community-tennis-development-workshop-creates-new-traditions-in-orange-county/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/community-tennis/sctas-community-tennis-development-workshop-creates-new-traditions-in-orange-county/#respond Fri, 15 Dec 2017 19:24:10 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=21892 Read more »]]> The Community Tennis Development Workshop was a smashing success held recently at Bill Barber Community Park in Orange County. The one-day event was sponsored by the Southern California Tennis Association and it offered coaching education, resources and tennis support to approximately 40 participants.

Melanie Bischoff, the Director of Community Tennis, said the Community Tennis Development Workshop has been offered for about a decade in Southern California. The conference was previously located at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden but was moved due to construction at that site. When the SCTA was searching for a new venue, City of Irvine Tennis Director Steve Riggs immediately offered accommodations at City’s offices and Bill Barber Community Park. Also, the seminar was restructured from a two-day to a one-day seminar.

“It was a pleasure for the City of Irvine to host the CTDW,” said Riggs, also incoming member of the SCTA Board of Directors in 2018. “We feel it’s important to give back to the tennis community and one great way to do this is by hosting tennis education seminars. We look forward to helping out again in the future.”

The CTDW morning kicked off with a comprehensive On Court Net Generation Training led by USTA National Coach Karl Davies. The three-hour session offered an in-depth look at the USTA’s Net Generation Red Ball program for beginners focusing on tennis progressions, easy games, and activities with a fun flair.

After lunch, the SCTA staff led a “Welcome to Net Generation” program headlined by USTA SoCal Director of Marketing Cari Buck, and Tennis Service Representatives Karen Ronney and Aisling Bowyer. They informed of Net Generation resources, programs, teaching support and a vast array of coaching guidance for 10-and-Under Tennis. The workshop was designed to assist teaching pros, coaches, teachers, park and recreation leaders, and those associated with Community Tennis Associations.

Additional sessions included a historical look at the development of tennis in the African American communities led by representatives of the American Tennis Association. Other offerings were breakout focus sessions led by local experts.

In addition to the tennis education workshop, lunch and dinner, the CTDW had its first awards presentation. The First Serve of Santa Ana was named the “Community Program of the Year”, and the group received a plaque and recognition for its efforts. They said the fundamental concept of First Serve was to teach tennis to kids, and encourage older players to mentor younger ones. This program develops responsibility, community spirit and leadership skills in youth. First Serve said it credits their successful model to tennis legend Vic Braden, who provided assistance in their earlier years of operation. Other award winners were Beth Kuney for Volunteer of the Year, Mark McCampbell received an award for Coaching Excellence of the Year, and Braemar Country Club was named Community Partner of the Year.

“The workshop is an opportunity for Community Tennis Association (CTA) members, park and recreation professionals, teaching pros, facility personnel and community tennis advocates to get together to learn and to continue to find ways to grow the game,” said Evan Smith, USTA SoCal Manager of NJTL, Diversity & Inclusion. “This is also a great way to network, meet new people and build friendships. It’s one of the highlights of the year in Community Tennis at the USTA.”

USTA’s College Knowledge Inspires Players and Parents http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/college-tennis/ustas-college-knowledge-inspires-players-and-parents/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/college-tennis/ustas-college-knowledge-inspires-players-and-parents/#respond Fri, 17 Nov 2017 18:11:58 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=21748 Read more »]]> What does it take to get a college tennis scholarship? Outstanding answers came from tennis professionals at the recent College Knowledge Workshop held at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego. The event was sponsored by the USTA and organized by USPTA Pro Amanda Fink, a former tour player and ITA All-America pick. The goal was to hear from the professionals about many types of tennis opportunities at the collegiate level including NCAA Division I, II & III schools, USTA’s Tennis on Campus program, NAIA opportunities, the importance of fitness, and the benefits of Community College tennis.

Over 50 coaches, parents and players attended the free workshop. It was a great opportunity to ask key questions to expert panelists including USC Assistant Women’s Coach Chris Wootton, San Diego Christian College Women’s Coach Priscilla Jensen, USD Assistant Men’s Coach Rich Bonfiglio,  San Diego City Men’s and Women’s Coaches Brandon Lupian and Jami Jones, Andrea Tyndall of Athletic Evolution, and Madeline Segura of USTA’s Tennis on Campus (TOC).

Fink opened the workshop by sharing her personal story of how tennis helped her in college and beyond, as she now holds a prestigious teaching position at the Santaluz Club in San Diego. She works with high school athletes on and off the court.

“Parents this is your chance to get real answers from some of the best,” Fink said. “You can ask the coaches questions in general but can’t specifically ask about your child.” General information that was shared includes the following:

  • Women’s NCAA Division I and NAIA programs offer full scholarships where Division II schools typically offers partial rides to female athletes. Men’s Division I and II colleges usually offer partial rides. Men’s and Women’s Division III schools can’t give athletic aid.
  • Community Colleges are great opportunities to get an almost free education and play college tennis while in pursuit of an Associate Degree or transfer to a four-year school.
  • USTA’s Tennis on Campus (TOC) is a USTA Program at 25 colleges across the country, and they offer great tennis at a high levels while not being a varsity sport. Perks include great competition and travel. Scholarships are not needed to play TOC.

“The level of commitment is the biggest difference between Division I, II and III schools,” Wootton said. “Tennis is a fulltime job in Divisions I and II. In Division III, academics come first. “

All coaches on the panel agreed high school athletes making the transition to college need to learn how to find balance in their lives. Organizational skills and learning to live away from home are big adjustments.

Questions included: What is the recruiting process to identify players? All agreed they look at a combination of USTA rankings, UTR ratings and TennisRecruiting ‘s star system.  However, there are additional factors.

Jensen said  her NAIA program in San Diego can offer scholarships and it is typically for those suited to those seeking a smaller private school. “We are looking for that unique individual who has tennis skills plus the right personality to make it a perfect fit,” Jensen said.

Jones, the San Diego City College Women’s Coach, suggested Community Colleges are great options for many student-athletes. “It’s the perfect time for recent graduates to grow as individuals and players in lower pressure atmosphere.”

Segura is the Assistant Director of Adult Tennis at the Southern California Tennis Association. She said TOC is a step down from NCAA varsity tennis yet a step up from recreational club tennis. They are student run programs that are lively and social. Practices are held during the week and players participate when it works into their schedules.

Another angle of preparing for college tennis includes fitness, which is an area of specialty for Andrea Tyndall, a strength and conditioning coach based in San Diego. She has worked with other high profile programs such as Tennis Australia.

“If tennis is your toolbox, fitness is a massive part of your program,” Tyndall said. “If you can’t get to a ball it doesn’t matter how good you are.”

Other tips came in the form of how to contact coaches, when players can expect responses, questions to ask coaches, and  the importance of creating players’ resumes. One reality changer included player behavior off the court.

“I’m looking for good character,” Bonfiglio said. “A tennis team is a culture. We are looking for players who really like tennis. I know that sounds silly but it’s not always the case. Some players have a long list of accomplishments but there are over the process by the time they get to college. We want players who will take it upon themselves to get better. That reveals a high level of character.”

USTA National School’s Train the Trainer Workshop is a Stellar Success http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/usta-national-schools-train-the-trainer-workshop-is-a-stellar-sucess/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/tennis-news/usta-national-schools-train-the-trainer-workshop-is-a-stellar-sucess/#respond Mon, 08 May 2017 16:03:50 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=13486 Read more »]]> The theme of the day for the USTA National School’s Train the Trainer Workshop was inspired by the 1970’s iconic movie “Star Wars” joining enthusiastic tennis curriculum and an “intergalactic” oncourt production. The event was entitled “ May the 4th Be With You” held on May 4 at the new USTA National Campus in Lake Nona, Florida.  It was a gathering of approximately 90 of the country’s top tennis staff, pros, trainers and instructors, who gathered from the 17 sections.

“We wanted to make this a great learning opportunity and Star Wars seemed to be the perfect theme,” said Tony Stingley, the National Manager of Schools Tennis. “We are excited to share this new program and offer support to everyone.”

The event was divided into three groups aptly named Yoda, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. The oncourt morning session was held indoors followed by lunch, a tour of the National Campus, and an introduction to the new USTA’s National staff. The day was capped off with a small group question and answer session with leaders of the various tennis departments.

“This is a new and refreshing look at the USTA School’s program,” said Tiffany Geller-Reed, Manager of the Southern California Tennis Association’s Schools program. “This training gave us a lot of information to share with everyone in our section. I think it’s great that the plans and games were geared to meet the needs of the individual grade levels. I am very enthusiastic about the changes.”

Final Junior Tournament Director Workshop – October 16th http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/newsletter/final-junior-tournament-director-workshop-october-16th/ http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/newsletter/final-junior-tournament-director-workshop-october-16th/#comments Sat, 01 Oct 2016 23:51:10 +0000 http://southerncaliforniatennis.org/?p=9147 Read more »]]> The Southern California Tennis Association Junior Department is hosting five mandatory Tournament Director Workshops across Southern California this year. Two have already been completed in Orange County and San Diego. Megan Heneghan and Ken Grassel, who are part of the SCTA Junior Department staff, have led the presentations. Barry Friedman, who is the Chairman, and Eric Stephens, who is a member of the Junior Competition Committee, added their insight based on years of industry experience.

Tournament-Directors-Workshop

During the workshops, the Tournament Director’s Manual; tournament checklist; officials and court monitors; and online tournament sanction forms, are discussed. The sessions conclude with a tutorial on the “all factors” seeding method (required for Levels 1-4) and an interactive TDM (Tournament Data Manager) presentation. In previous workshops, there has been a good deal of talk about handling certain situations during an event, as well as the expectations of a Tournament Director at each junior tournament level. Information pertaining to junior tournament levels 1 (National) through 7 (Entry Level) was also provided. Overall, the gatherings take about four hours, with breakfast and lunch served between presentations and discussions.

no-caption

There are different challenges at each level, but the information presented at these workshops allow a Tournament Director to efficiently prepare and manage for challenges that may arise. For example, a common complaint from parents and players is the lack of officials at junior tournaments. A large portion of the workshop is dedicated to the requirements of officials at each event level, and the new “roving umpire” rule now implemented at every tournament. Grassel distributes the Southern California Tennis Umpires Association contact information sheet so that every director can guarantee the proper number of officials at their events.

The goal is to have every Southern California Junior Tournament Director operate consistent, high-quality junior events, from novice to the highest advanced levels. The workshops provided a Tournament Director with information and the resources necessary to meet all the essential junior tournament requirements, provide exceptional customer service and achieve success in every championship. Preparation and a positive environment are of the utmost importance. By attending a workshop, a Tournament Director is guaranteed to acquire the knowledge and confidence to consistently run exceptional events.

The final 2016 workshop will be held on Sunday, October 16th at UCLA in the Straus Clubhouse. The session will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 1:30 p.m. For details and to make a reservation, please contact Megan Heneghan at heneghan@scta.usta.com
