In tennis, teaching proper technique and skills to children from the start is of utmost importance. USTA has made it mandatory that instructors now complete the "Coach Youth Tennis" curriculum before becoming certified.

“Elevating the quality and standards of teaching tennis to our youth will have lasting impact on our sport for years to come,” said USTA Player Development General Manager Patrick McEnroe. “’Coach Youth Tennis’ provides tennis teachers of all levels with the tools necessary to teach the sport to children.”
