Champions

On & Off the Court

USTA Mid-Atlantic Creates Character, Community, and Well-being. 

 

When you are on the tennis court, it is not only important to know the rules of the game but to display respect and good sportsmanship as well. Sportsmanship includes respecting your opponents, playing fair, and doing your part so that everyone is having fun! To recognize those who have exceeded expectations we have created a recognition program for all players in the Section. Explore nomination guidelines and important resources below so you and your players can continue to exemplify good sportsmanship and/or community service on and off the court at all times.

Play

USTA Mid-Atlantic is committed to providing a safe and respectful environment for athletes to thrive in. Safe Play is the USTA’s comprehensive athlete safety program consisting of education, screening, reporting tools, and policies for appropriate conduct in tennis. The USTA works with the U.S. Center for SafeSport and the United States Olympic Committee to develop Safe Play policies, procedures, and educational resources to support the USTA Safe Play program. We have adopted the educational resources provided by the U.S. Center for SafeSport to inform parents and athletes of all ages about preventing misconduct in sport.

 

At USTA Mid-Atlantic, we STRONGLY encourage all athletes and their parents/legal guardians to familiarize themselves with Safe Play. To access these resources please visit https://www.usta.com/en/home/safe-play/resources.html.
