PTR Coach Apprentice

Train your own assistant coaches to help run your programmes and camps at your club.

How it works:

  • The course will be run over 10 hours using your own coaches. The hours can be run however you see fit to complete the course over any number of days.
  • Assistants can be aged 12+ and are covered by your coaching insurance (as long as you are present on the court).
  • We recommend you charge coaches a minimum of £60 however you can charge what you wish for the course per student. There is a cost per student of £30 (payable to PTR) that will include a workbook, certificate of attendance and £50 discount on a future PTR course for each student.

Let us know you wish to run a course and we will advertise it for you via our website on the bookings page.

What the students will learn:

  • Introduction to mini tennis and SYSTEM-9
  • Lesson structure
  • Warm ups for mini tennis
  • Basic technique teaching on serve, forehand, backhand, and volleys
  • Feeding and rallying skills
  • Organisation, communication, and demonstration
  • Helping to run tournaments
  • Basic match charting


How the students can benefit:

  • Assistants can become hitters for mini players.
  • Parents pay the coach and you pay the student a nominal fee. (Again the student must be on a court near the coach).
  • Coaches can pay the assistant for helping in sessions with a larger number of kids.
  • On completion of the course, apprentices will gain a certificate for a £50 reduction on future PTR GB 10 and under courses.
