“PTR is able to provide these fantastic discounts thanks in part to the USTA. The USTA is providing grant funds to assist with delivering these 10 and under educational workshops,” said PTR CEO, Dan Santorum. “This is a great deal for people who have been thinking about joining PTR and getting their tennis teaching certification. PTR membership has always been a terrific value, but this August it’s even better!”
USTA Chief Executive of Community Tennis, Kurt Kamperman stated, “The PTR Junior Development workshops build on the foundation laid in the USTA 10 and Under Tennis workshops, and they are a great way for tennis coaches to continue their education. The USTA is excited that PTR is helping build a larger pool of well trained teachers and coaches for this very important age group.”
PTR President, Jorge Andrew added, “As a PTR Junior Development (10 and under) Clinician, as well as a USTA Trainer for 10 and Under Tennis, I see the need for more coaches’ education in this area.
