That used to be an easy answer, NO COACHING ALLOWED! Tennis, along with the rest of the world, has evolved to a higher form of complexity and now coaching is allowed in various formats, high-school, WTA, college. It's illegal to do so from the stands but coaches and parents do so regularly and when caught obviously coaching are penalized for attempting to covertly do it. Consult the Flex League rules or seek out a flex league attorney specialist for the current rules on coaching in your instance.
