Recently, the USTA decided to combine the Community Tennis and Player Development coaching education departments. The goal of this realignment is to continue to provide world class coaching education opportunities and to develop resources and programs that raise the standards of coaching education in the United States. Now and in and the future, the combined USTA Coaching Education Department will partner with allied organizations like the PTR and USPTA and use our internal resources to continue to provide quality workshops and materials with one message and philosophy that will benefit tennis teachers and coaches at every level of the game.
The USTA offers three unique types of trainings: Ten and Under Workshops, Team Coaching Workshops and USTA Player Development Workshops.
