5-9 p.m. - Net Generation Workshop with USTA National Faculty Member Craig Jones
The Net Generation Coaches Workshop is a 4-hour course conducted by USTA National faculty on the use of the Net Generation Coaches’ Curriculum. The Curriculum features competencies to serve as a roadmap for players and parents, practice and play plans for on-court, and assessments to evaluate players. The workshop will utilize experiential learning - all coaches take part in on-court activities to review the lesson plans, and participate in peer teaching exercises. The goal is for each coach to be able to deliver the plans and implement into their own programs.
