High School Coaches Gather in Charleston for Workshop

August 5, 2009 02:05 PM

Forty-two high school coaches from around the state gathered at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston on July 27th for a High School Coaches Workshop hosted by USTA SC and the SC Tennis Coaches Association.

USTA Master Trainer, Mike Woody, led a three-hour on-court instruction session on basic games, techniques and strategies for high school teams and how to maximize court space for multiple players. The workshop was the first USTA High School Coaches Workshop to be conducted in the nation.

2009 HS Coaches Workshop

Lunch was provided for the coaches prior to the on-court instruction and all the coaches received a copy of the Top 10 Games Every Coach Should Know CD, a copy of The On-Court Guide to Tennis Strategy, and the Summarized Rules of USTA Tennis. They also learned information regarding USTA programs and resources. Amongst the topics discussed was No-Cut tennis, a USTA initiative that encourages and recognizes high school coaches who support the concept of giving every child an opportunity to participate in a high school tennis program.

There are many free incentives and resources for coaches that wish to register online with the USTA as a No-Cut high school tennis coach. If you would like more information on No-Cut or would like to become a No-Cut Coach, please visit or contact Michelle Campanella at 800.644.7282.
