Tayo Bailey To Participate In Coaches Academy

Butler women's tennis coach Tayo Bailey has been selected to participate in the 2013 NCAA Women's Coaches Academy May 29-June 29 in Denver, Colo.

Bailey, who was hired at Butler last June and recently completed her first season, is a 2006 Butler graduate and former tennis professional and fitness trainer at various spots in Miami and Chicago before spending the last two years as a pro at the Goldfine-Smatt International Tennis Academy in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The NCAA Women Coaches Academy provides skills training for coaches at all levels to assist them in being more efficient, productive, resourceful and successful. The academy is designed for women coaches who are ready and willing to increase their individual effectiveness by learning advanced skills and strategies that directly affect their personal and team success. The participants learn skills that are not sport specific, yet ones that are relevant and necessary for coaching responsibilities, beyond the X’s and O’s.
