Tennis Coaching Jobs in America
Taking your passion for tennis to the next level.
Tennis jobs abroad are an incredibly rewarding way to progress your passion. Not only will you spend each day coaching in the sunshine, but you will be making an impact teaching something you love.
You don't need to be the next Roger Federer to become a tennis coach , either. You’ll need to be flexible and adaptable to different ages and skill levels within a session and be confident in leading lessons by yourself.
With large groups of campers signing up for tennis, you’ll also have to bring both safety and responsibility to your role whilst also keeping energy levels high.
Who knows; your input could be the spark that influences the next Pete Sampras or Serena Williams to take up the sport.
What is summer camp?
Simply put; it's the summer of a lifetime.
Camp is about 10 weeks of summer sun, unforgettable moments, and experiences that will shape your life.
You'll be involved with leading groups of campers in America, each of who look forward to their time at camp for the entire year.
It's a massive part of American culture, where campers get back to their 'home away from home'. They get to experience being out in nature, trying new activities, and creating their own core memories that will last forever.
You'll have the summer of a lifetime, as will the campers you help.
What's involved with coaching tennis at camp?
Putting your passion for tennis into use.
You'll have the chance to influence the next generation of tennis enthusiasts, as you pass along the basics in your day-to-day role.
As with all kids sports, it's important they do it for the love of the activity. So you don't need to be a high level coach or plan sessions intensely; it's about creating a fun evironment where you can allow the kids newfound passion for tennis to flourish.
Whether are not you had a tennis influence at a young age, you now have the opportunity to be exactly that for someone else.
What tennis coaching experience do I need?
We will always put the right character over the right qualifications.
Even if you don't have a tennis-specific qualification or coaching badge, there's still a place for you teaching tennis at camp.
Some of the very best leaders are those who are passionate about an activity and want to make a difference.
If you can match that with your passion for tennis, we think you'd be a great role model at summer camp.
However, if you have done one of the following, be sure to include it on your application:
- Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) coaching qualification
- Level 2 or above coaching award
- High quality players with strong experience
Tennis coaching jobs are a great CV-builder, whether you're looking for a future career in football coaching or not.
Tennis work experience at camp will help you develop your leadership skills, which will make you a great candidate for future job opportunities. Tennis jobs at camp are also a great summer alternative to just practicing tennis locally.
Summer camp is the ultimate skills builder.
Not only will you learn hard skills related to your activity, but you'll develop a range of soft skills thanks to what you'll be doing in your day-to-day.
You'll build your team work, communication, problem-solving, creativity and resilience, all whilst having the summer of a lifetime.
It's no exaggeration to say you'll change lives.
Summer camp is a place where magic happens. Whether it's campers overcoming fears, or finding a new activity that takes them down a new path in life, moments happen on a near hourly basis.
And you'll be front and centre of it.
Summer camp is the most fun you'll ever have being challenged.
You'll go through the whole range of emotions whilst at summer camp, and you'll come out the other side realising it's the best summer you've ever had.
The friendships, moments, and experiences you'll get are unlike any others, and there'll be very hard to get anywhere else ever again.

Tennis coaching jobs FAQs
How can I apply for a tennis coaching jon at summer camp?
When starting your application you’ll be asked to select your top skills. Choose 'Tennis'. Go into detail about what you’re going to bring to the role, your skill level and if you’re already qualified. A camp director will then be able to assess if you’re a good fit and invite you to their camp.
How can I make my application stronger without any qualifications?
The best way to make your application stronger is to have the qualifications to back it up. Tennis coaching jobs in America are a fantastic way to spend the summer but also very competitive. If you are serious about coaching football in the USA then take a look at courses which may give you confidence and show your skill level.
How many children will I be coaching in one session?
Your tennis coaching job will see you teaching various campers divided by age group. These divisions can vary in skill level, but are usually made up of 10-13 campers. You’ll then be paired with an individual camper or a group, and don’t worry - you’ll be supported by your fellow counselors, who will act as volunteer tennis coach.
Should I pack any equipment?
You'll have everything you need to carry out your job at camp, so anything you want to bring (maybe to show the kids), is just a bonus. More often than not, you’ll be working outside, so make sure you have the right clothing to complete your activity.
