The KCTA hosted a two-day Level 1 Coach Workshop the weekend of May 6 - 7. Many thanks to USTA for creating and delivering the training with three high-quality Coach developers from across the country. Many thanks to Zach Gomez and Bakersfield Country Club for the use of their beautiful facility and wonderful hospitality. However, the greatest thanks go to the 39 people who devoted their weekend to becoming better tennis instructors.
