Workshops & Certification
January 2, 2017
The coach is where current and aspiring players turn to learn the basics of tennis, to refine their swings, fine-tune their serves and advance their skills and their pursuit of our lifetime sport.
For many, coaches are their point of entry into the game. As such, you serve many functions, from teacher and motivator to cheerleader and psychologist. No matter what role you play, your part in a player’s development – and the way you approach that teaching – is crucial. It is also highly rewarding. Coaching gives you the opportunity to mold games and maybe even change lives.
