USTA Florida High School Tennis Coaches Workshop in Jacksonville

December 15, 2009 06:00 PM
A High School Tennis Coaching Workshop will be conducted by USTA National Certified Trainer Dede Allen on Jan. 6, 2010, from 2:30-6:30 p.m. at Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Fla. Coaches at any school level are invited to attend and learn the best strategies to give your players the best experience and lead your school tennis team through a fun and organized season.

The workshop is FREE and open to any school coach that would like to attend, and will cover material for both the beginning and experienced coach.

"This workshop will be a great way to kick off the high school season and show coaches how to make the most of their team practices," says Amanda Becker, USTA Florida tennis program coordinator for northeast Florida. "Dede is a very experienced high school and college coach and her knowledge will be so valuable to these coaches, especially to those coaches that may be in their first or second year of high school coaching."
