ITA Tech Update: November 2021

The ITA continues to work on technology updates to provide a more professional look and interactive experience for users of the ITA competition tools platform. Here’s an update on system upgrades we’ve provided or will make available to our member coaches shortly: 

  • The Team Roster module in your ITA Team Workspace was initially released in August and upgraded mid-fall to improve the ability to share data with current and future partners (UTR and ITF World Tennis Number). Coaches are encouraged to ensure the correct date of birth, nationality, and student classification for all team members. Failing to add correct student-athlete details could result in match scores not being attributed to the correct UTR or WTN player profile.
  • The ITA Tournament Desk system launched this fall was used to report results from 425 tournaments. Match scores on draws are automatically added to the ITA results repository and shared with UTR. Future enhancements include mobile-friendly published draws, scheduling, and match play (ad-hoc reporting).
  • The Dual Matches module (phase 1) was released in November and is available for adding upcoming scheduled matches and reporting match results. Future upgrades include publicly displaying and searching for scheduled dual matches, viewing box scores, editing scheduled dual matches, and streamlining score entry.
  • The iOnCourt app is now available to share live scores and track match statistics. The app works on Apple iPhones, Android devices, and web browsers and is free to use. Future integration with ClubSpark competition tools will allow coaches to submit match results directly to ITA’s results repository in 2022.
  • ITA Team Workspace modules for community websites and programming are now available to support coaches with summer camps, lessons, clinics, and social events and include online registration and payment functionality. ITA Tech Talks scheduled for December 2nd and 9th will be recorded and available on the Coaches Resources website. 
  • In early 2022, new system releases will display rankings, results, and team and player profiles.

Most of our tech priorities come directly from coach feedback. So please let us know how we are doing or provide your suggestions on the Tech Tools coach forum.
