Regional Training Centers

The establishment of Regional Training Centers (RTCs) enables USTA Player Development to partner with the best regional programs in the country, building relationships between our best coaches, and raising the level of training for our best juniors ages 8 through 14.

The partnerships will also make the transition of the very best juniors in the country (ages 14-16) into our national programs in a more seamless manner. As we establish more and more RTCs we will be able train hundreds of our juniors (ages 10-14) close to home and facilliate relationships between their coaches and our national coaches. We will be able to track the development and performance of these juniors and build strong relationships with their coaches and parents.


USTA Certified Regional Training Centers


Currently, USTA Player Development has partnered with 17 RTC programs across the country. Now more than ever, the very best coaching and instruction the USTA has to offer can be found closer to home. Check out our listings by clicking the heading above.


  • The establishment of Regional Training Centers will enable us give juniors in the Sections an opportunity to receive High Performance training near their homes, enabling them to attend school and live with their families. It also provides them with supplementary coaching that doesn’t threaten their private coach.
  • The Regional Center also provides the Section with an opportunity to provide High Performance coaching and great competitive opportunities for talented juniors who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
  • The Regional Centers provide the Section with subsidized programming to enhance the recruitment of very young players (ages 6-10) Using the 10 & Under Tennis format, and age-specific equipment – we have an opportunity to grow the talent pool with better athletes than ever before.

Why Regional Training Centers?

  • Because a player’s foundation is built between the ages of 8 and 14.
  • Because the most critical coaching phase is 8 – 12 (girls), 10- 14(boys).
  • Because maturity is a function of socialization. Most kids need their family.
  • Because it’s a TEAM effort. RTC’s will help us create hubs of collaboration and co-operation which will greatly increase the number of juniors we develop.
