LTA Performance Coaching Pro Course


Crowd watching a Davis Cup tennis match between Great Britain and Australia

The Performance Coaching Pro Course (Level 5) has been built around the challenges and demands coaches experience within the International Junior, Pro Transition and Pro stages of the Player Pathway. In each of these stages, the central figure is the player, and this course acknowledges the importance of the coach's role in supporting the player to move through these transitions.

The purpose of this course is to create opportunities to work with other coaches and experts on and off court, linked to the International Junior, Pro Transition and Pro stages, to explore:

  • What is successful player development?
  • What is successful coaching linked to player development?
  • What does the coach, as a person, bring to their practice?

The Level 5 course is the highest qualification the LTA can offer; it requires a deeper level of thought from the coach linked to their coaching practice. The 18-month course will recognise what each coach will come with and support them with the questions they have, to bring structure and add depth to their existing knowledge and skills, enabling them to progress with these new insights about what coaching strategies work for them and their players, in what situations and why. This will be done through practical workshops, individual coach development sessions in the coach’s environment, mentoring from senior coaches and insight from external experts.
