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 two placements of three days in a performance tennis environment. It is hoped that candidates will consider travelling overseas for at least one of these placements.
Non-tennis placement: Candidates will need to spend a minimum of three placements of one day in duration in a non-tennis environment. It is recommended that two of the three placements are in sport and one is 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.
