Course Details

If you are aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31st August 2018 before booking please contact the Course Provider directly as you may be eligible for funding.

The LTA Level 1 Coach Assistant Qualification is the first step on the LTA Coaching Pathway. It is aimed at people looking to work as a coaching assistant at a club or other tennis venue, such as a park or a school. The qualification is an assessed course and is awarded by 1st4sport.

Upon successful completion candidates will be able to work as an assistant coach alongside a minimum of a Level 2 Accredited Coach in a beginner coaching session.

The course is 3 days in duration, split over a minimum period of 4 weeks and will cover areas such as Mini Tennis, technique, tactics, communication, organisation, demonstrations, safeguarding, running competitive events and organising activity sessions. Additionally, the course requires candidates to complete a portfolio and gain a minimum of three hours experience assisting an LTA Accredited+ coach between the second and third day of the course.

Coaches who hold a Level 1 Coach Assistant Qualification are not qualified to coach independently, but will be able to lead parts of a coaching session on an adjacent court to a Level 2 or above coach. They can also run a tennis activity session that has been set up by the Head Coach (Level 3 or above). A tennis activity session refers to organised play or competition facilitated by a coach through organising equipment, allocating space, and suggesting some ideas for activities. The key distinction between a coaching session and activity session is that no formal coaching instructions (for example technical instruction) are given.

Course pre-requisites

  • Be a minimum of 16 years old on the first day of the course.
  • Have a signed letter of deployment from the club where coaching experience will be undertaken or request a letter of deployment from the Course Provider.

Candidates must attend all the sessions of the course at the same venue and pass all elements of assessment to be successful.

Exemptions

If you hold a UKCC endorsed, 1st4sport awarded Level 2 in another sport you can bypass Level 1 and take Level 2.

If you hold a teaching qualification (PGCE or equivalent) specialising in P.E. then you can bypass Level 1 and take Level 2.

Additional Information

Please note, if the course is run by a training Provider, and not the LTA, any payment taken online or out of the LTA website will be sent straight to the provider.
