These workshops are an excellent primer for new recreational coaches and instructors as well as a valuable refresher course for those with teaching experience but who seek to learn the latest teaching methods.

Recreational Coach Workshops are also excellent annual training opportunities for new professionals and the chance for ongoing training for seasonal tennis instruction staff and current coaches. (See USTA Southwest Schedule below)

Each RCW is taught by a specially trained, certified teaching professional (USPTA and/or PTR) the United States Tennis Association (USTA) has developed.
