Community Coach Workshops
March 2, 2020
04/13/20: Given the heightened concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus, the USTA has made the decision to postpone all USTA scheduled events and workshops that were to take place up until May 31, 2020 and therefore we are canceling this workshop series until further notice. At all times, we must put the health and safety of all our constituents at the forefront of our decision-making, and we feel this is in the best interest of our collective communities. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and review each week, and take appropriate measures as the situation evolves. Read the USTA's full statement here.
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. ADVERTISEMENT We believe in creating a positive and welcoming environment for players of all ages and abilities. Together, we can shape the future of tennis!
USTA Missouri Valley is offering a series of Net Generation Community Coach Workshops 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.
These 3 hour workshops showcase 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. Participants will learn more about how to use the curricula in their current programming, the Net Generation App, and Team Challenges for all ball colors.
