ITA Coaches Convention
Nearly 300 men’s and women’s college tennis coaches at all levels gather each year for the convention. The four-day convention is highlighted by some of the most influential people in the sport of tennis. The convention is constantly evolving and includes clinics, panel discussions, awards banquet, a trade show, networking opportunities, a recruiting showcase and a chance to exchange ideas.
