Junior Team Tennis Team Captains play a vital role that allows teams to be successful and have fun! The United States Tennis Association is committed to making every tennis experience an enjoyable and memorable one. To ensure a safe and fun environment for all participants, the USTA has developed "Safe Play." Safe Play embodies the USTA’s commitment to respect and safety for every individual participating in a USTA event or program through the use of screening, education and reporting tools.
The USTA expects individuals to adhere to Safe Play policies and standards, as well as all other USTA policies, procedures, and practices and applicable external laws and regulations. Safe Play consists of the following five requirements and standards:
1. Conduct, Policies & Guidelines
2. USTA Background Screening
3. Education & Training
4. Reporting Misconduct, Maltreatment or Violations of Safe Play
5. Grassroots Engagement & Communication
All Team Captains must complete the USTA's Safe Play Process for Junior Team Tennis. This process includes a background check and online safety course and must be completed by all Team Captains every two years.
The required steps need to be followed in order to become an official Team Captain:
Once you receive the email from NCSI stating your background check is clear, please email Emily Fink-Craig (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you will be connected with your team. Until this is done, you will not be able to access your team information or enter scores.
