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+ years and are covered by your coaching insurance (as long as you are present on the court).

We recommend you charge coaches a minimum of £50 however you can charge what you wish for the course per student. There is a cost per student of £20 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
  • Warms 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 10% reduction on future PTR GB 10 and under courses.
