scotty booth 2 ladiesWelcome! 

This is Coach Scotty.

I established ICTA 20+ years ago in 1999. 

ICTA Membership is always free. Join Now! Membership in 2500+ cities in 80+ nations.

The larger our collective voice has become the more influence for positive change brought to the world via tennis. This voice has done much good! 

Long ago when I was 29 years of age my dream was to share my faith in Jesus . I'm 54 now... ICTA has since reached 1,000,000s in person and online.

Tremendous accomplishments:.

 

Global Membership: People from 2500+ cities in 80+ nations have joined ICTA. 

International Tennis Academy: Junior & professional tennis players from 35 nations have attended fulltime. 

Pro Tennis Teams: Our pro teams have travelled over 1,000,000 miles to compete in pro tennis tournaments in 20+ nations, and helping other athletes in need from 50+ nations.

Global Adventure Tours: Our athletes and guests have traveled worldwide to bucket-list destinations with a purpose for outreach, adventure, teamwork, faith-building, and leadership development. This is a small, exciting program with 1-3 tours per year.

Large Scale Outreaches: Providing helpful, faith based materials to tennis fans at among the world's most attended tennis events while also growing membership, contacts, connections.

Created Sports Outreaches Worldwide: Partnered with individuals, churches, athletes to form Christian sports outreaches in all major sports in 15+ nations.

Coach and Player Support: Coaches and collegiate and/or pro tennis players from every major religion and 20+ nations have come to us for mental/emotional support during difficult issues in life. Has been an honor to come alongside others in times of need.

Friendships & Partnerships: Christian speakers & music artists & Pastors & authors, athletes from many sports, leaders in religions & politics.

Coach Connection: Over 100 university tennis coaches, 100s high school tennis coaches. 100s of tennis teaching pros. 100s of fitness, nutrition, mental & emotional.

 

The work has been spectacular. An honor to have participated! 

In my 30s and 40s I had a singular focus to grow ICTA and impact 100,000s. 

Mission accomplished!

While these accomplishments are wonderful... the work also was difficult.

Many (most) nations and people worldwide in this sport are not fans of Jesus, and many some people/groups from different cultures simply wanted me and my work ended. 

15+ years of global outreach took its toll on me physically, mentally, emotionally. In 2016 I took a 3 year break to rebuild my health. I contemplated retirement from public ministry. After 2 years I decided to continue, but with specific restrictions for my time.

Before I would re-enter public life I had several main goals to accomplish first.

I worked hard and God opened all the opportunities.

All of my goals were achieved. Mission accomplished!

International group came to Coach Scotty's horse farm, then explored NASA, Disneyworld, Universal Studios, Blue Man Group, World of Coke, Atlanta Aquarium, White House, Congress, Smithsonian Museums, tennis, BBQ, and more. From Florida to Washington DC! 21 days of bucket list fun and excitement!)

During the 3 year break my underground work continued, but my public presence slowed. I discovered I really, really enjoyed my new life! I've also enjoyed shutting down (pausing) our social media.

Nowadays... ICTA is my hobby, not my life.  I really enjoy this!

Many Christians I've met nationwide do little to grow their faith, follow the Great Commission, provide outreach locally or nationally or internationally, support Pastors and missionaries. 

I'm different. I do a lot. And I have for 20+ years to the best of my ability. 

I have put in my time, and now I have refocused my efforts to provide longevity in my health and in my outreach.

ICTA is now a hobby in which folks worldwide assist me. I believe our combined efforts are more powerful and effective than ever.

Instead of a complete focus on global sports ministry....

I have a small company in farm & ranch, a small adventure tour program, my sport coaching.  After 3 years of experimenting I've also created a line of equine nutritional supplement health products. When my baby girl was born in 2021 I looked for a specific toy and couldn't find it. So, I invented the toy. This toy has led to 10+ other toys and a potential company that I very much look forward to growing!

While I'd re-entered public outreach globally.. many aspects of ICTA have paused due to Covid-19 closing borders.

During this pause ICTA will continue to provide support for depressed/hurting ministry workers and athletes  that we currently know. Website links (left side) that are open are available on a limited basis. 

In 2025 ICTA will announce a unique global innitiative. This project is interesting, and personally for me... exciting. More info will be provided later this year.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
