USTA RI holds its 4th annual successful “Coaches Clinic 2018” in Newport at Tennis Hall of Fame

Despite the hurricane and storm forecast, we had approximately 24 of the community coaches attend a very fruitful and comprehensive clinic. It started at noon time with a tour of the museum and then training by club pros, college coaches,and certified PTR/PTA for 3 hours. It was designed to focus on high-school coaches and extended to many more from middle schools, and managers, ADs, and community leaders. It focused on physical, mental, and experiential coachingĀ  with respect to junior players, team management, positive reinforcement and creating a balanced approach to a positive experience. We had an hour of finishing touches for Q/A, sharing experiences, and most importantly new policy and mission changes in USTA-national and NE and the support system available to all.
