We’re excited to be hosting a 10-and-Under USTA Tennis Training Workshop next weekend, October 24th, 10-1:30 at the Bay Road Tennis Club in Amherst, MA. These trainings are not frequently held in our area, so please take note, sign up, and spread the word about this one. It’s a useful certification for high school and college age players who may want to work with youth players either during summers or during the school year, as well as any coaches, parents, instructors, PE teachers etc. who spend time working with children 10 and under.
WHAT IT IS: The workshop is a hands-on, on-court, interactive 3.5 hr training taught by an expert national faculty member. It’s a cornerstone of the new Coach Youth Tennis program designed to provide coaches with the skills needed to engage and teach kids ages 10 and under. Successful completion of this workshop provides an ideal certification for anyone wanting to work with youth tennis and is the first step in further USTA certifications.
WHO WILL LEAD IT: Sharon Murphy, National Trainer for USTA in 10 and under Tennis and Recreational Coaches Workshop will lead this workshop. Sharon is the Assistant Director of Tennis at the East Hartford Tennis Club. She played #1 singles for the University of New Hampshire and was Professional Tennis Registry’s New England Pro of the year in 2011. She is certified at the Professional Level by PTR in both Junior and Adult Development, and is a Junior Development clinician for PTR.
