High School Tennis Coaches No-Cut Recognition and Support
The USTA wants to recognize all high school tennis coaches who implement a no-cut policy. These coaches play a critical role in our sport by allowing young players the opportunity to be part of a team. They experience the greatest element of high school sports – the opportunity to participate on a team with their friends representing their school.
