Coach Youth Tennis
Coach Youth Tennis is a collaborative effort between the PTR, USPTA, USTA and the USOC. In addition, Coach Youth Tennis serves as the starting point to become a certified Teaching Professional as those coaches who successfully complete the program will be ready to be tested and certified by either the PTR or the USPTA.

Even if you don’t plan to be certified, the combination of on-line courses and a 10 and Under interactive, on-court workshop will provide valuable education and resources for you to effectively engage and teach kids the sport.

Competitive Coach Development


USTA High Performance Coaches Information
USTA Player Development established a Coaching Education Department to provide coaches throughout the country with a Teaching and Coaching Philosophy and methodology that will enhance their teaching and training efforts, and provide them with a vehicle for transmitting their knowledge to today’s junior players and tomorrow’s Champions. The USTA High Performance Coaching Program was created to provide direct and indirect Coaching Education opportunities to coaches working with players who are striving for excellence in tennis (i.e., nationally ranked junior players to top collegiate and young professionals). The USTA Coaching Education Department established the educational component in cooperation with the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR)

This USTA High Performance Coaches Workshop will present you with a framework for teaching and training High Performance junior players that is based on our USTA Player Development Teaching and Coaching Philosophy. We realize that every coach brings unique experience and coaching styles to bear in their teaching and coaching. However, this Philosophy and methodology will help our best American coaches align their teaching and training with a unified approach to progressive parameter-based teaching and training with a shared terminology that will allow us provide aconsistent message to our junior players.
