Welcome Katie Miller - Director of Junior Tennis
Cedardale is excited to announce Katie Miller as our new Director of Junior Tennis. Katie is USPTA, PTR and Cardio Tennis certified and has attended numerous conferences that include USTA Tennis Essentials, IT'S MY GAME, and LTA organization. She is also on the PTR Because We Can Committee whose goal is to empower and encourage more females to become coaches. In 2019 Katie was awarded the USTA Heart of America Outstanding Contributor to USTA Youth Programs.
A collegiate tennis player at Albreight College and Kutztown University until sidelined by injury Katie began her tennis journey early at the age of 4 being coached by her father for the next 16 years. Katie has degrees in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Development and Special Education. After completing her degrees she was an educator in preschools as well as public and private elementary schools.
Katie reentered the world of tennis by way of coaching. While spending time in North Carolina she created a program called CONQUER YOUR COURT that delivered fun and energizing tennis exposure to children with intellectual, emotional and physical diabilities. Having found a way to impact athletes through her favorite sport she has found a full time career in growing the game of tennis for all ages and abilities.
Katie has become a passionate advocate for youth activities and loves spreading joy through racquet fives (high fives with racquets). She is driven to help athletes develop confidence on and off the court. As Director of Junior Tennis, her goal is to create, grow and provide local youth with opportunities to learn a sport that lasts a lifetime. Through an empowering, creatively fun and engaging approach Cedardale will help young athletes build a foundation of technical, tactical and situational skills while learning to challenge themselves.
A dog mommy to her French Bulldog Ellington, Katie resides in Wakefield and is excited to be back on the East Coast after 3 years in the Midwest.
Katie is looking forward to lots of snow, walks to the lake and the opportunity to meet everyone in the Cedardale community - just be ready to see lots of pictures of Ellington.
