Coaching kids just got easier

May 8, 2014 12:26 PM

Coaching kids has never been easier thanks to a new accessible, online interactive program: Coach Youth Tennis. The program provides innovative education resources for a novice or experienced coach. The USTA worked in partnership with the Professional Tennis Registry, United States Olympic Committee and United States Professional Tennis Association and in conjunction with medical, coaching and child development experts to design and implement Coach Youth Tennis.

The result is a student-centered, comprehensive educational curriculum that will help you develop the next generation of tennis players, fans and perhaps even champions.

Coach Youth Tennis provides a consistent educational pathway for all those interested in coaching children ages ten and under, and can lead to certification from the United States Professional Tennis Association and/or Professional Tennis Registry. 

In order to be eligible for certification from one or both of these organizations, one must first complete six online courses and attend the 10 and Under Tennis workshop. For coaches already certified through USPTA and/or PTR, Coach Youth Tennis is not only a dynamic and exciting way to better one’s 10 and Under tennis-teaching skills, but it is also recognized as a course to complete each organization’s annual continuing education requirements.

The free online courses can be accessed easily on any computer or laptop. Onlines course average between 30-40 minutes long, and the face-to-face workshop is 3.5 hours long and costs just $15.
