TENNIS UPDATE…

INDIANA TENNIS COACHES:

The USPTA Midwest Division is offering a low-cost Virtual Tennis Convention in February and March in conjunction with the state tennis coaches associations in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin.
The convention will cost $45.  That enables an attendee to watch 9 hours of live sessions. Those sessions will take place for three hours on Friday, Feb, 26 (5-8 p.m.), Friday, March 5 (5-8 p.m.), and Saturday, March 6 (3-6 p.m.).  The varied speakers include high school coaches, USPTA members, a chiropractor, a professor and a performance analyst. Registrants can view the webinars online for up to two weeks at their leisure, so they do not have to be present during the live presentation.
The website for the convention is up and running currently and includes specific information about the sessions and speakers.  The web address is  usptamw.coachesclinic.com  and registration is available at the site.
USPTA education credit is available.  Participants receive 1 credit for each hour of sessions viewed live.
Indiana HS Tennis Coaches Association president Tim Cleland will speak at 7 p.m. Friday, March 5 on the topic of “Pandemic? Quarantine? How Coaches and Pros Can Navigate COVID”
The annual Indiana Tennis Convention was cancelled this winter due to the pandemic.  We plan to return in person next February 3-4-5 at the Indianapolis Racquet Club.
