SCJTL recommends the USTA Net Generation program to every school in Suffolk County!

This incredible program is designed to integrated tennis into a school or school district’s physical fitness program or enhances existing tennis courses.

The Suffolk County Junior Tennis League (SCJTL), Suffolk County Tennis and Education Foundation (SCTEF), and the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and have teamed up to bring the exciting world of tennis to Suffolk County schools.

The USTA School Tennis Program, considered the crown jewel of the many USTA community tennis programs, introduces your students to the lifetime sport of tennis.

As the Executive Director of the Suffolk County Junior Tennis League, USPTA Certified tennis professional in Suffolk County, and a Certified USTA School’s Clinician for many years, I know this program will help open the world of tennis and its many opportunities to all school districts. I am so excited about this program that I have volunteered my time to help make this program available to all of the schools in Suffolk County.

The USTA USA School Tennis Program includes:

  • Introductory assemblies by certified USTA Schools Clinicians designed to excite your students about learning and playing tennis.

  • Teacher training and course materials.

  • Follow up assemblies to introduce your new curriculum.

  • Consultation service to help grow the presence of tennis in your district through programs made available from the USTA, SCJTL and other community tennis associations and events in or near your school district.

  • Opportunity to receive free tennis racquets, nets and QuickStart Tennis balls for use with your tennis classes.

  • Encourage and assist school districts to apply for USTA Public Facility Funding grants. SCJTL has helped school districts file successful grant applications. 

All of this is available all schools as a USTA Net Generation School Tennis Provider.
