  • 2018 Net Generation Pathway Grant Form

  • Overview: USTA Sections can request grants to create incentives or promotions to help support local communities in connecting the pathway under Net Generation between schools, community programming, and USTA competition products; Team Challenge and Junior Team Tennis. These grants should focus on growing player participation, increasing the number of providers, and improving the quality of local programs and their retention rates.

    Example: A grant request should identify a group (e.g. CTA), local providers, and/or certified teaching pros to collaborate on offering the Net Generation pathway in their community. This would require a registered school connecting with an approved school partner, who would deliver the community curriculum, which would lead to a provider offering Team Challenges. The community would also have to offer a Junior Team Tennis program.

    Process: USTA National staff will review grant requests, and respond, within 10 business days. A grant request can be up to $6,000. Money is approved and sent based on the circumstance of the incentive or promotion request.
