Then a summer in America teaching tennis could be the perfect role for you this summer.
What does a tennis coach do?
Fun and exciting, being a tennis coach in the USA is all about providing engaging lessons for budding tennis players of all ages. Tennis is one of the largest and most popular programs at camp (where most sports have 1 or 2 activity specialists tennis tends to have 6+ staff.)
You and your team will be responsible for leading 5-6 activities each day as well as any extra or private lessons that were scheduled. With tennis tournaments and inter-camp leagues, there’ll be opportunities for friendly matches and some serious competition.
You should bring games, games and more games. As your lesson plan progresses over the summer you’ll move from coaching the basic skills and drills to putting everything into practice.
Why should I teach tennis in America?
Tennis jobs abroad are incredibly rewarding. Not only will you spend each day coaching in the sunshine, getting a summer tan stronger than Nadal’s left arm, but you will be making an impact teaching something you love.
You’ll have to be flexible and adaptable to different ages and skill levels within a session and be confident in leading lessons by yourself. With large groups of campers signing up for tennis you’ll also have to bring both safety and responsibility to your role whilst also keeping energy levels high.
You should be energetic and have patience in your coaching – America is searching for their next Pete Sampras or Serena Williams, you might be the hero to make it happen.
