Tennis matches and tournaments rely on excellent officials to foster a fun and fair experience on the courts. If you’re an experienced official looking to enhance your skills, USTA Heart of America will be hosting two in-person officiating workshops in June! The workshops will be for Roving Umpires and Referees. Each one is limited to the first 12 participants to register.


The first workshop, which takes place Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will be focused on roving referees and their duties on the court. Interested attendees must have previously completed the Level Two Roving online course. The registration deadline for the in-person session is Saturday, May 27.


The second workshop on Sunday, June 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will detail the role of on-court referees. This workshop requires prior completion of the Level One Referee online course. The deadline to register is Sunday, May 28.

Both workshops will be hosted at the USTA Missouri Valley office, which is at 4121 W. 83rd Street, in Prairie Village. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't delay.
