Community Development Workshops – Sign Up Now

Calling all tennis enthusiasts.  Join members of the tennis community for the two-day workshop that will take place, in mid-October. The first activity will be on-court at California State University Los Angeles on Saturday, October 15th. It will be an ideal chance for anyone working with young or beginning players to add to their teaching techniques. Topics that will be covered include learning large group management practices, progressions for all strokes, dynamic stretches, competitive scoring formats, how to effectively and appropriately use the modified tennis equipment and much more. In addition to the educational coaching resources that will be offered in the on-court presentation, the six online courses, (which are free), designed to further coaching skills, will also be discussed. Once the online courses and the on-court workshop are completed, a 10 and Under Coaching Certificate will be awarded. This innovative program has been created in conjunction with the USTA, PTR, USPTA, and the USOC. Participants in the program also earn USPTA Continuing Education credits.
