Is Your Club Pro Fully Certified?

If he/she is, then his/her name will be posted on the list of certified coaches that appears on Tennis Canada’s website. Click here to view an updated list of Coaches in BC. If your pro’s name is not listed there, then the person either does not have current certification and/or is not a current member of the TPA.

In order for an instructor/coach to maintain his/her fully certified status, he/she is required to attend a professional development activity every 2, 3, or 4 years depending on his/her level of certification. This important feature ensures your pro is up to date with regard to teaching methodology.

TO ALL COACHES: YOU MUST HAVE CURRENT TPA MEMBERSHIP IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN YOUR ACTIVE STATUS. VISIT WWW.TPACANADA.COM AND CLICK “RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP“.
