ITA Awards Program in recognition
for USTA Sectional support of college varsity tennis

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) will honor USTA Section Staff and USTA Section Volunteers who assist ITA collegiate coaches that serve their communities through two awards.

The ITA Collegiate Varsity Performer and ITA Collegiate Varsity Volunteer of the Year Award will honor USTA Staff and Volunteers who have assisted ITA collegiate coaches for leading campus and community-based tennis programs through leading the different USTA sponsored programming listed below as well as promoting tennis through recreational tennis programs, or assisted ITA collegiate coaches who promoted the 10 & Under Tennis QuickStart play format by hosting a variety of events on their campus.

To nominate a USTA Section Staff member or Volunteer, or submit an application, complete the forms found below. Once the nomination has been received, the nominee will be contacted to complete the award application form. USTA Sectional Staff or Volunteers may also submit a completed application form, on their own, without being formally nominated. We want to recognize what USTA Sectional Staff and Volunteers are doing to help ITA collegiate coaches promote the different USTA programs and tennis in general. Help us to honor all deserving USTA Sectional Staff and Volunteers for their dedication to tennis and their work within their communities.
