About the Author

USTA Jr. Team Tennis is the largest youth tennis league in the country, helping girls and boys ages 6 to 18 get in the game, get on the court, and have a good time. Teams are coed and made up of at least six players (three boys and three girls) based on similar ages and skill levels. The emphasis is on skill development, fun, teamwork, and friendly competition, all with the possibility of advancing to the national championship. Tennis is a sport individuals can play for life, and Jr. Team Tennis lays the foundation for a lasting relationship.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good start for beginner coaches getting into the industry. Pros interested in rearing more competitive youngsters need to consider more that are not in this book. If you are starting to coach, this is a good book to start with. If you have some experience already with coaching children and adolescents, this book may be a little elementary with mostly review pointers.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Z. H. Staples on November 7, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was adequate for explaining the rules of the game and providing a structure to frame a new league tennis coach's plan for the season, but contained very limited information on "how to teach tennis to kids." I am a father teaching tennis to my three children (ages 10, 8 and 6). I was looking for a resource to provide me ideas, games and concepts to teach the game correctly to my kids in fun environment. This book didn't give me anything I can use.
