Net Generation: Community

Coaches Workshop


Ricardo Maldonado and Alejandro Arias from USTA Caribbean offered a Net Generation Community Coach Workshop to assist community providers to engage more kids by using the customizable practice-and-play plans, activity videos, and access to free modified equipment. Curricula have been developed for red, orange, and green stages of a tennis program using modified equipment targeting beginner players ages 5-18. Additional support is provided with marketing materials and promotions to enhance your coaching experience.


This 3 hour workshop celebrated at the Centro de Tenis Honda in Bayamón showed relevant activities for each level, utilizing the easy-to-follow Red, Orange, and Green Community Curricula as well as how to coach, manage, and organize practices and is perfect for full-time and/or seasonal coaches, parents, volunteers, community tennis providers, or anyone interested in learning more about the Net Generation tools and resources through hands-on experience. ADVERTISEMENT Participants learned more about how to use the curricula in their current programming, the Net Generation App, and Team Challenges for all ball colors.


Net Generation is USTA’s commitment to spreading the love of tennis to a new generation, by empowering those that will teach them. Coaches, organizers, and teachers can gain access to the expertise of the USTA as they work with leading experts worldwide to develop new play formats, curricula, and digital tools. We believe in creating a positive and welcoming environment for players of all ages and abilities.
