Mike Ryon
Recreational Coach

The Recreational Coach is a noncertified, entry-level category designed for people who may already be teaching tennis – as high school coaches, at recreational facilities or in other part-time situations – but are not immediate candidates for careers as full-time teaching professionals. Recreational Coaches successfully complete a workshop and are qualified to assist full-time staff during camps, group lessons and other grassroots programming.
