The Master Club Coach Qualification is for coaches who are or who aspire to work at the very highest level of club coaching.
Through discussions with key coaches, research into other sports and reviews of previous LTA qualifications, the following description of a Master Club Coach has been developed. This has formed the basis of the course criteria.
Please note that an extensive commitment is required to complete this course and includes:
Candidates will undertake three main personal studies during the course:
Area of interest: This will be a project based around the candidate’s particular area of interest and will culminate in the development of a coach education resource to benefit British Tennis in the future. This project will form part of the candidate’s tennis coaching management diploma which is delivered by Northumbria University.
Performance tennis placement: All candidates will be required to spend a minimum of three days in a performance tennis environment. This can be either in the UK or abroad.
Non-tennis placement: Candidates will also need to complete a minimum of two placements of one day in duration. One of the two placements will need to be in a sport environment and one will need to be outside sport.
The LTA Coach Licence is a form of accreditation issued by the LTA to coaches who meet a range of requirements relating to safety and training.
