USTA Volunteer


Volunteer for USTA National Committee

The fundamental role of each USTA committee is to advise the USTA Board of Directors in promoting and developing the growth of tennis.  Committees of volunteers who are USTA members work with USTA staff to research suggested or Board-directed proposals; propose, refine, review or evaluate programs, activities and budget allocations within the committee’s duties; and provide timely recommendations to the Board.

Volunteer at Section Headquarters

There are many opportunities to volunteer at the USTA Northern California headquarters office in Alameda. Whether administrative, event planning or participating on a committee, help us grow the game by giving your time to tennis!
Thank you to the many volunteers in our section who serve in their tennis communities. Volunteers run CTAs and community programs, work at tournaments and professional events, advocate for tennis, serve on committees, and promote and develop the growth of tennis. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who make the many USTA events and programs fun, exciting and possible.
Whether you've volunteered in the past or are new to the USTA NorCal volunteer community, we invite you to register via our new volunteer database to be notified of volunteer opportunities.  

Adult League and Junior Tennis Volunteer Opportunities

Adult League
Local volunteers needed to help at League District and Section Championships held at locations all over Northern California throughout the year.  Friendly people with good organizational skills needed to help run the tournament desk and to sell League clothing.  Contact Lynn Losande, Adult League Coordinator , (510) 263-0441 or email losande@norcal.usta.com.
Junior Tennis
Enjoy Tennis and like working with children? Share the fun and fitness of tennis with children ages 7-18 by volunteering on court or as an organizer for Junior Team Tennis Leagues (JTTL).  Like many other youth sports, JTTL relies on grassroots community involvement.  With little or no tennis experience, any parent, coach or volunteer can introduce kids to tennis in a team environment.

Junior Team Tennis Leagues are played all over Northern California during spring, summer and fall. You don’t have to be a great tennis player, just a great tennis enthusiast. All youth tennis volunteers must have a current background check and have transportation. We will provide training and materials. Call the Junior Team Tennis Specialist, Darren Wenger for more details at (510) 263-0467 or email jrteamtennis@norcal.usta.com.

Diversity & Outreach
To be included in our volunteer roster, contact Diversity and Outreach Specialist 
Silvia Duenas-Bielser. Give back to the sport you love and make a lasting difference in your tennis community by becoming a USTA Northern California volunteer today! 

USTA Volunteer Competencies: A Brief Overview For Section Volunteer Leaders

During 2011, the USTA developed and defined a Leadership Competencies Framework intended to help formalize a Leadership Development Pathway for Volunteer Leaders.

After two years of awareness building, educational programs, and incorporating the Competencies into various leadership development processes at the National level (e.g., Committee Appointment Process; Committee and Council Chair development, etc.), the Learning and Leadership Committee is now focused on making the Competencies education, learning tools, and development resources available to Sections to help develop Section-level Leaders based on their particular needs and plans.

USTA's Volunteer Learning Resource Center (LRC) - Basic User Enrollment

The USTA has been developing a website called the USTA Volunteer Learning Resource Center (LRC) which provides learning and development resources available for the National Volunteer Leadership competencies as well as other useful learning resources. Focusing on just the competencies, each has development resources that will assist National and Section-Level Volunteer Leaders to enhance their knowledge and skill in that particular competency.
