The LTA Master Performance Coach Qualification (MPC) is for coaches who coach high performance players and who also have the responsibility for their programme development and planning.
The course will provide a progressive presentation of the knowledge and competencies required for the specific roles of assistant, personal coach, junior programme leader, and travelling coach and supply many repetitions of the ‘core’ coaching skills during each of the 13 regroupings. The course will be ‘coach’ centred both during the regroupings and between sessions.
The course trains coaches to work with players of international standard at U14, U16 and U18.
