USTA OFFICIALS WEBSITE

The USTA’s certification school for tennis officials in our area will be February 25 and 26, 2012, at Cedar Bluff Racquet Club in Knoxville. 

In order to become certified or re-certified as an umpire and/or referee for the next year, the USTA requires that you attend the appropriate session(s) of a school. This will be the only one in Knoxville in 2012.  Because Knoxville will be a "National School" site in 2012, officials who already are in the USTA's NUCULA system need to pre-register via NUCULA.

Saturday Feb. 25:

  • 8:30 am – noon: USTA certification for current officials with 4 or more years of experience/certification
  • Noon – 3:00: Referees*, any number of years experience
  • 3:00 – 5:30: ITA (college-level)*, any number of years experience

Sunday Feb. 26:

  • 9:00 am – 1:00 pm: USTA certification for new officials and for officials with 3 or fewer years of experience/certification

*IMPORTANT: Anyone seeking referee and/or ITA certification must also attend either the Saturday morning or Sunday morning session (depending on length of experience)

 

IF YOU'RE A NEW OFFICIAL OR WANT TO BECOME ONE:

Before attending the school, you need to go through the steps of becoming a "Provisional Official."  Contact Steve Richardson (srichardson@tombras.com) for information and a list of steps you'll need to take to do this
