USTA IN SCHOOLS

FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE COURT.

The USTA Net Generation Schools program aims to bring more youngsters into the game by providing access to tennis during and after school.

TRAINING & CURRICULUM

The Net Generation Schools curriculum was developed with teachers in mind. Created in conjunction with SHAPE America (Society of Health and Physical Educators), a leading organization that sets the standards for health and physical education across the country, the program is easy, customizable and designed for anyone, regardless of experience.

USTA Southern California offers school districts and physical education teachers the opportunity to host (at no expense) an in-person professional development session, which will be run by USTA SoCal staff. To qualify, the host must bring together ten staff/faculty for two hours in an activity space such as a gym or blacktop. It’s the first step in bringing tennis programming to your students!
