Recreational Coach Workshops:
A Recreational Coach Workshop (RCW) is an interactive, on-court training program designed for tennis teachers and coaches working with players at the recreational level. Taught by a specially trained, certified teaching professional, this active 6-hour session covers:
- Teaching large groups
- The games-based approach to coaching
- The QuickStart Tennis format
- Running effective team practices
- The Top 10 Games Every Coach Should Know
These workshops are an excellent primer for new coaches, as well as a valuable refresher course for those with teaching experience but who seek more current methods and effective tools. Faculty are all certified by the Professional Tennis Registry and/or U.S. Professional Tennis Association and have received special training from the USTA.
Workshops must have a minimum of 20 participants. You don't have 20 participants in your community? Consider inviting coaches from surrounding communities, or co-host the RCW with another agency. If your Park & Recreation Agency, Club, NJTL, community tennis association or other organization is interested in hosting one of these workshops, please visit www.usta.com/rcw.
