Indiana Tennis Convention

The 2019 Indiana Tennis Convention is co-sponsored by the Indiana HS Tennis Coaches Association (IHSTeCA) and the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association (ICGSA). Joining us in 2019 will be a new partnership with the USPTA Midwest Division, which will help Indiana USPTA pros to attend the conference and earn continuing education credits. Hosted by Indianapolis Racquet Club on Dean Road.

2019 GRID Schedule:    “Coming soon….”

HOTEL INFO: 

This year we do not have an official convention hotel.  There are numerous hotels within 15 minutes of the IRC tennis club.  We have found in recent years that coaches use their points and find online deals for rooms rather than stay at a convention hotel.  Please let us know if we can help you with arrangements.

2019 SPEAKER INFORMATION:  

The annual Indiana Tennis Convention is less than two months away and the program is shaping up to be another power-packed weekend of great speakers and topics.  Here are some of the details and latest developments:
The convention is organized by the Indiana HS Tennis Coaches Association in conjunction with the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association.  In addition, this year we have formed a partnership with the Indiana USPTA club pros in collaboration with the the USPTA Midwest Division.
Lunch on Friday will be catered by Jason’s Deli.
We have some exciting speaker commitments!

From 1985 to 2009, he was Tennis Director of the IMG-Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Florida and was Nick Bollettieri’s right-hand man.  He has helped train eight players who were ranked No. 1 in the world on the men’s and women’s tours and 27 Top 10 players.  Kei Nishikori, Jim Courier, Monica Seles, Maria Sharapova, and Andre Agassi are among the players he worked with.  He has coached players in all four Grand Slam events for 26 consecutive years.   A frequent clinician, he has been a keynote speaker at ITF World and Regional conferences and has taught tennis in 32 countries.
    > Emmy Kaiser will visit us from Cincinnati, Ohio.  Emmy is a two-time participant for Team USA in Wheelchair Tennis in the Paralympic Games.  She competed in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London and the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. Living with spina bifida, Emmy will provide an overview of tips and strategies about wheelchair tennis and will give coaches in attendance an opportunity to get in a chair and try it.
     > Ronnie Schneider will join us from Bloomington, Indiana.  Schneider is an Indiana tennis legend, winning the IHSAA State Singles Championship three times at Bloomington South and achieving a ranking of No. 1 in the USA in 18-under singles.  He went on to the University of North Carolina, where he was an NCAA All-American and National Senior Player of the Year. He helped the Tar Heels to national team runner-up in 2017.  He became the first player in Atlantic Coast Conference history to be a four-time first-team all-conference selection.  He has competed professionally (including the 2013 US Open doubles) and currently is on the coaching staff at Indiana University.
     > Scott Treibly, (USPTA) will visit from Sarasota, Florida.  He works in the USTA Collegiate Tennis Division and has more than 20 years of experience in the field of college tennis recruiting as a player, coach, and administrator.  A standout player at the University of New Mexico and University of Kentucky, he later served as coach at Texas A&M and spent 15 years as a recruiting placement coordinator for all eight sports at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.   He will speak about the do’s and don’ts of college tennis recruiting and how to find the right college fit for your athletes.
> In addition, we will have small-college coaches Kristine Miller (IU-Kokomo women’s tennis) and Jon Wegener (Taylor University women’s tennis); IHSAA assistant commissioner Chris Kaufman; South Bend St. Joseph boys’ coach Steve Bender, who will share his program called “Bridging, Bonding and Building: Creating a Tennis Family Culture,” and more sessions that are being finalized. 
     > We will do a session with a panel of experienced coaches discussing their tips and suggestions for “How to Coach Between Points.”  This is a timely topic as the IHSAA moves toward allowing coaching between points in boys’ and girls’ high school tennis.
     > The ICGSA Coaches Corner will include drills from several coaches.
     > During lunch, we will have Coaches Roundtables on a couple of practical topics.
     > We again will offer Coaches Fun Doubles and Cardio Tennis for convention attendees.  We will present awards for Coaches of the Year and milestone awards for victories and years of service.
     > And as always, an abundance of exhibitors will be on hand, which means answers to all your questions and plenty of freebies for coaches!
Our annual Indiana Tennis Hall of Fame banquet will be Friday night, Feb. 1 at the Woodland Country Club in Carmel.  This beautiful facility is where we held the induction ceremony last year, also.
