Florida Tennis Coaches Conference at Daytona Beach in December

General News

Two days of high-quality coaching education for all levels of tennis professionals will be featured when the 2019 Florida Athletic Coaches Association/Florida High School Tennis Coaches Association (FACA/FHSTCA) Tennis Conference is held on Dec. 6-7 at the Daytona Beach Hilton Oceanwalk and Seabreeze High School in Daytona Beach, Fla.

“This year’s workshop is highlighted by 17 hours of high-quality coaching education for all levels,” says organizer and state chairman Mike Baugh. “It doesn’t matter if this is the first time you have coached the school’s JV team or if you are a 40-year industry veteran, this workshop has something for you. Join award-winning coaches from around the country and get updates to help you and your programs.”

Friday evening will feature a meet-up with presenters for a Social Network Forum where attendees can meet and talk to other coaches in a relaxed environment at Sloppy Joe’s, walking distance from the resort.

Clinic registration is free for 2019-2020 FACA members and $70.00 for non-members. Attendees may receive in-service points towards the Coaching Endorsement or re-certification requirements by signing up the first day of the clinic. Although the D.O.E. has approved the FACA Clinics as a means of meeting the new requirements, an attendee’s county must also approve the FACA Clinics to receive the points.

The two-days agenda includes sessions on Out of Season Team Play/Tennis on Campus with USTA Florida, Professional Tennis Management, Emotional Intelligence in Tennis Players, Wheelchair Tennis, How to Incorporate Fitness Into Your Coaching, Drills for the High School Player and the Science Behind Them, Train Faster and Play Smarter with Statistics, Adaptive Tennis, Tennis in PE, High-Level Tactics for the High School Recreational Player, Winning Team Practice and more.

“This is your chance to hear and share ideas with some of the best tennis coaches in the state and to spend quality time with other coaches,” Baugh says. “Come to Daytona Beach and be a part of this outstanding conference.”
