The ITA administers numerous men’s and women’s regional and national championships, the ITA Collegiate Summer Circuit presented by the USTA and the ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings for men’s and women’s tennis at the NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA and Junior/Community College levels. The ITA also has a comprehensive awards program for players and coaches to honor excellence in academics, leadership, community outreach and sportsmanship.
“We are always looking for ways to better serve our membership,” stated ITA Executive Director, David Benjamin. “Beginning this spring, coaches will be able to register for the various ITA programs and events online through our new Web site. The Active registration system will prove very helpful to our coaches in minimizing paperwork and simplifying the payment process. Offering Active’s services is an exciting step for us and we look forward to the launching of our new Web site.”
