Certification Courses

Dear Coach: Please note that TPA memberships expired on Dec. 31, 2021.  

Please go to www.tpacanada.com to renew today so your name will continue to appear on the TPA’s list of certified coaches!  

Please contact Jeannie Rohr if you have any questions about the Tennis Instructor, CP1, and CP2 courses organized by the Tennis BC.

The Coach 2 and Coach 3 courses are organized by Tennis Canada. Please contact Jocelyn Robichaud at jrobichaud@tenniscanada.com if you need information or wish to register for those 2 courses. (CP2 is now a prerequisite for Coach 2).

To register for all courses, please click on the link corresponding to the course you are interested in from the lists below. It will direct you to the TPA (Tennis Professionals Association).

When you click on the registration link for the course you wish to register for and find it shows 0 spots available, please still register. You will be placed on the waitlist for this course and will be notified by Jeannie at Tennis BC if you get a spot in that course.

Priority will be given those on waitlists for subsequent courses.

Tennis Instructor courses are usually run on Friday nights and all day Saturday and Sunday (over 2 weekends). The First Friday is now held virtually, and the other course days are all done in person. However, with the challenge posed during COVID, other scheduling options may be used.

 

Please note, you will need to provide a valid credit card as part of the online registration process.  The card will be charged when you register for you to get onto the class list.  (Registrants with student cards may need to increase the limit).

 

Jeannie can be contacted at 604.737.3086 ext 5 or jrohr@tennisbc.org
