Isaac McBroom directs and manages the delivery of all tennis and education programming, both at ICT’s indoor tennis center in South Minneapolis and at various school and park locations across Minneapolis.
A Minnesota native, McBroom began coaching as a teenager for his hometown’s Youth Athletic Association, where he developed a love for coaching and a desire to make tennis coaching and education his life-long career. In 2001, he graduated with a degree in Health Fitness from Gustavus Adolphus College. While there, he played on the men’s varsity tennis team all four years and captained the team his senior year.
After graduation, he moved to San Diego, California, to work at the renowned Barnes Tennis Center, where he co-founded a high performance academy that quickly grew to more than 150 players. During that time, he became the traveling coach for several WTA players, including some who gained top 100 world rankings.
In 2013, McBroom moved back to Minnesota to work with the Junior Performance Programs at Life Time Fitness. He eventually became Life Time’s National Coaches Education Lead, bringing education and structure to over 300 coaches across the country.
In 2016, he became one of the lead clinicians delivering coach education for the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), the world’s largest organization of tennis teaching professionals, with over 16,000 members in 125 countries. In 2017, he was named PTR’s Director of Development, a role that had him organizing and delivering tennis education and certification to coaches throughout the United States. He also served as Director of Development for the Professional Pickleball Registry, performing many of the same duties to create educational opportunities for the fastest growing sport in the United States.
