Tennis Industry to Host Florida High School Coaches Workshop on Aug. 4

The USTA National Campus in Orlando

High school tennis coaches and school athletic directors in Florida will get an opportunity to learn about the many new resources available when representatives from the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) national body, the USPTA Florida Division, the USTA national body, and the USTA Florida Section host the inaugural USTA Florida High School Tennis Coaches Workshop at the USTA National Campus in Orlando.

The workshop, also presented by Wilson and Gatorade, is free to participants and will be held on Friday, Aug. 4, 2017, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the new “Home of American Tennis” in the Lake Nona region of Orlando.

“This will be the first step in an ongoing process to develop a positive relationship between tennis leaders and schools in Florida, providing information on both in-season and out-of-season play opportunities,” says Thad Hawkes, USTA Florida entry level/high school competitive coordinator. “Info will also include coaches education and memberships, manufacture products for schools and players, an introduction to all the opportunities available at the USTA National Campus, and much more.”

    This could be a major step in moving high school tennis from a after school activity, to a after school sport. Hopefully USTA Florida will be passing out info on the September 28th to 30th FACA tennis clinic at this same wonderful location.
