Currently, USTA Player Development is partnered with five Regional Training Center (RTC) programs across the country. Now more than ever, the very best coaching and instruction the USTA has to offer can be found closer to home. 
 

Benefits

  • The establishment of Regional Training Centers will enable us give juniors in the Sections an opportunity to receive High Performance training near their homes, enabling them to attend school and live with their families. It also provides them with supplementary coaching that doesn’t threaten their private coach.
  • The Regional Center also provides the Section with an opportunity to provide High Performance coaching and great competitive opportunities for talented juniors who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
  • The Regional Centers provide the Section with subsidized programming to enhance the recruitment of very young players (ages 6-10) Using the 10 & Under Tennis format, and age-specific equipment – we have an opportunity to grow the talent pool with better athletes than ever before.
 

Why Regional Training Centers?

  • Because a player’s foundation is built between the ages of 8 and 14.
  • Because the most critical coaching phase is 8 – 12 (girls), 10- 14(boys).
  • Because maturity is a function of socialization. Most kids need their family.
  • Because it’s a TEAM effort. RTC’s will help us create hubs of collaboration and co-operation which will greatly increase the number of juniors we develop.
