Fun, safe, easy, no courts required!
USTA School Tennis provides in-school and extracurricular programming for students in grades K-12. The primary goals of the program are a positive first-time experience, perceived competence, fun and fitness. Another important element is to help schools meet their health and wellness requirements. The program offers training, curriculum materials, access to major discounts on kid-friendly equipment and staff support.
High School Coach Practice Tools
The USTA Southern High School Subcommittee has compiled the High School Coach Practice Template, a comprehensive, 19-page .pdf document designed to help coaches run great practices.
The practice template lists a variety of drills, with in-depth explanations. ADVERTISEMENT A one-page diagram shows specific drills along with spots on the court for extra activities, ball hoppers, etc. Lastly, the document contains four pages of FAQs, dealing with a variety of on- and off-court situations.
Special thanks go to subcommittee members Bernie McGuire and Debbie Southern for their time and dedication to this important document.
