Tennis Certification

Are you thinking about teaching tennis?

Or, maybe you’re already a tennis teacher.

Either way, you owe it to yourself and your students to seriously consider the significance and importance of earning your tennis teacher certification.

What does certification mean to you and to a parent or student contemplating hiring you as their tennis teacher?

Basically, certification is a process that gives recognition to tennis teachers who meet certain standards. It is a promise that the teacher will provide the quality services that he or she claims to offer.

Tennis teachers directly affect the lives of both children and adults. For this reason, the National Tennis Academy® has sought, since it’s organization in 1982, to protect the interests of this segment of the public by setting standards and training persons as tennis teachers.

To ensure tennis teachers meet basic standards, the USNTA produces and administers a training and certification program consisting of 243 learning objectives with on-court training exercises.

Tennis teachers who successfully pass the program are authorized to identify themselves by the designation USNTA-Certified.

USNTA-Certified tennis teachers are dependable and competent educators who have agreed to abide by the organization’s Code of Ethics at all times.

For a tennis teacher certified by the USNTA, the road to certification was both challenging and rewarding.

So, as you can see, when it comes to providing parents and students with the best value, certification is the tennis teacher’s best friend.

Tennis teachers throughout the United States and other countries are finding that with the National Tennis Academy® they always receive individualized, person-to-person attention.

You progress at your own pace. You study at home, practice the techniques with your own students on your local court, and then send in your completed work to the academy for grading.

The academy will spend as much time as is necessary to help you develop your tennis teaching technique.
