When you bring tennis into your school, whether you work at the elementary, middle or high school level, the benefits to the students transcend the boundaries on the court. You will help your students build self-confidence, learn teamwork and sportsmanship as well as lead healthy lifestyles. Now bringing tennis to your school is easier than ever, with resources and training available from the USTA. Are you looking for a new sport to be offered in your physical education class besides the traditional games like kickball?

School Workshops

FullSizeRenderSchool Workshops are designed to show physical educators and extracurricular program leaders how to conduct a quality tennis unit. Teachers are shown interactive tennis activities and games while learning how to run a tennis class without the use of courts or a large amount of equipment. One of the main goals is to show teachers, who may not be experienced in tennis, the adaptability of the sport and how they can teach a class engaging a large group of kids. These school workshops are very active, in which teachers participate in all of the activities and usually ends with teachers competing to show off their skills!

All participants are given a Certificate of Attendance and the option to receive curriculum and equipment, upon completion of their Net Generation registration. For more information on school tennis or school workshops, contact Kim Wilson.

No-Cut Tennis Policy

No-cut coaches play a critical role in tennis by allowing young players the opportunity to experience tennis by being a member of a team.  A no-cut policy sends the message that developing kids of all levels is important to the school.  This opens opportunities for assistance from parents and the community, which can help your shool achieve its health and wellness goals.  THe USTA celebrates the special commitment coaches and schools make to keep all interested players on their teams through numerous incentives.
