The ITA Coach Masterclass collection of courses includes various topics — from fundraising to building your facility to team culture.

The ITA & Coach Governance

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) has served as the nonprofit governing body of college tennis at the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, and Junior College levels since 1956. The ITA exists to empower over 19,000 student-athletes, 1,700 teams, and 1,500 officials in ways that raise the profile of college tennis, ensure the long-term prosperity of college tennis as a vibrant intercollegiate sport, and develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Tim Russell, the ITA’s CEO, explains the ITA’s functions, how our member coaches govern it, and the benefits coaches receive through their ITA membership.
