HIGH SCHOOL TENNIS
ORGANIZE YOUR SEASON
January 1, 2017
The high school tennis season can be divided into three main parts: pre-season, in-season and post-season. Whether you're planning for the upcoming year, playing matches or looking to develop year-round content once the season has concluded, the USTA is here to help you every step of the way.
Organization is key to ensuring your tennis season gets off to a smooth start. From taking an inventory of equipment needs and communicating your coaching philosophy to confirming your players are academically eligible, there's plenty of work to be done before you hit the court.
During the season, coaches need to be aware of school and association requirements while also managing everything from sportsmanship standards and team uniforms to emergency contact information.

Every good coach recognizes the importance of additional opportunities to help players extend their season, advance their skills and keep them engaged and healthy. Support events and activities to help keep students in the game after the season comes to an end.
