The Performance Coach Representation Group

The Performance Coach Reps were put together in March 2021 as a channel for coaches to voice their thoughts and opinions in and around performance coaching in the UK. They are a contact for coaches who will listen to the collective views of others and communicate these to the LTA on a quarterly basis. We have a team of 10 reps on board and below you can find the coaches that make up the group, with a bit of background on them. You can get in touch with any of the reps by emailing performancecoachsupport@LTA.org.uk.
