SKILLED & CONFIDENT
A central part of our mission is to involve and develop tennis instructors who have extensive experience and success teaching tennis and/or other sports to younger students. We believe our instructors need to know how to teach tennis, but just as important, they need to know how to relate to younger students so they will impart a lasting enjoyment for the game. We put a high priority on an instructor’s ability to communicate and relate to young students in various age categories.
All of the free summer programs and lessons are made possible by tennis clubs and tennis teachers who volunteer their time to share their knowledge and love of tennis. to ensure the highest quality level of training for the youth, all of the coaches and trainers prior to the season have also gone through training with the United States Tennis Association.
LRTA sponsors professional development because our instructors must set a high standard. Our success is measured in terms of the number and percentage increase in our instructors who: 1) are USTA Members; 2) take USTA development training seminars and workshops; 3) engage in league play; and 4) become certified professional instructors. Currently all of our instructors are USTA members; one has taken a USTA 10 & Under workshop and several others plan to do so; all but one are involved in league play; and three are certified professional instructors.
Kamal is a member of the USTA and an active coach covering several youth sports (tennis, basketball, and cricket).
