Rochester Tennis Connection, known by many in the area as RTC, is a tennis club open to both public players and private members. RTC is looking to hire a part-time tennis instructor to assist with junior tennis lessons on Fridays and Saturdays. These group lessons run one hour, consist of players ages 6 and older, and use pressureless tennis balls (orange and green balls).
As a tennis instructor, you will be responsible for educating young players in the great lifetime sport of tennis. The majority of time is spent on the instruction of technique on the forehand, backhand, and volleys, with some attention focused on the overhead and serve (dependent on the level of the group). Instruction should also include tennis terminology (including parts of the tennis court). RTC is “where tennis and fun connect”, so games are often incorporated with skill development!
The ideal candidate would have a history of successful tennis competition and has competed at the collegiate level. One year of previous tennis instruction experience is preferred (e.g., university coach, tennis club professional, etc.).
