Coaches Commission

The USTA Pacific Northwest is looking for volunteers to apply and serve on our "Coaches Commission" starting in 2017.  

The goal of the Coaches Commission is to create a network of coaches in the section that promote the player development pathway by supporting the EDC Camp structure and identifying players that are strong candidates for TEAM USA Sectional and Regional Camps that will help train a continuous wave of fundamentally sound 8-14 year olds in alignment with the USTA Teaching and Coaching Philosophy.

We are looking for coaches that are very active in coaching junior players in the PNW.  We want coaches that have a pulse on junior competition in our section.  

Click here to apply. Please feel free to share this opportunity with others who might be interested in applying.  

Click here to see more detailed information including a posted job description on the USTA PNW website.  

The application deadline is Sunday November 27, 2016.
