Latino Tennis Coaches Workshop in West Palm Beach on Nov 16

October 24, 2012 03:21 PM
USTA (United States Tennis Association) Diversity and Inclusion will present a Latino Tennis Coaching Workshop
titled "How Hispanic Coaches Can Impact Tennis Development in the U.S." on November 16, 2012, at Banyan Golf &
Country Club , 1393 Lyons Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33411.
 
"Latino coaches can substantially impact tennis development and competition in the United States, providing more
tools to attract, retain and develop more people playing tennis," said USTA Florida Diversity Coordinator Shelly
Licorish on the vision of the workshop. "Considering that there are more of 53 million Hispanic-speaking people in
the U.S., this workshop can be also an excellent option for Hispanic and non-Spanish Speaking coaches to expand
and improve their business."
 
The mission of the workshop is to share the most innovative information to help all coaches meet the challenges and
gain success in the U.S. tennis industry. The event is in collaboration with USTA Florida. The Hispanic workshops,
which originated in the USTA Florida Section, are now being piloted by USTA national.
 
By the end of the workshop, coaches will be able to: produce tangible benefits in new areas of their job; discover
their own level of competencies; engage with leaders in 10 and Under Tennis, Recreational Development, High
Performance and the tennis industry; engage the potential market of 53 million Latinos; and embark on continued
education and networking in their USTA Section and the rest of the U.S.
 
The keynote speaker will be Gustavo Granitto, an expert on Latino tennis and a past speaker of USTA, PTR and
seminar coordinator at ITF national and international seminars in more than 51 countries since 1985. He has 35 years
of coaching experience with both junior and professional players, with a specialty in coaching education and junior
development, primarily focused on the Long-Term Junior Development and Training Concept. He is founder of GTC
Tennis Consultancy Inc., a multicultural service company focused on comprehensive tennis development in Florida.
Additional prominent speakers from USTA, USPTA, PTR and Holistic Specialists Sports Nutrition, will be part of the
workshop. The registration fee for the event is $50 which includes a CD of presentations, folder program, lunch,
coffee breaks, gifts, meet-the-experts sessions, and certificate of attendance. USTA, PTR and USPTA members
receive a 10% discount on registration.
