Master of Tennis
Junior Development, Adult Development or Performance
PTR Master of Tennis programs are designed to develop the knowledge and expertise of coaches to the highest and most comprehensive level, in all aspects of coaching. To attend a Master of Tennis program the coach must already hold the respective Basic Certification at the Professional level and meet the necessary requirements to be accepted. Each program consists of 18 separate, but linked, courses.
In July 2011, the PTR Master of Tennis – Performance received accreditation from NCACE – the National Council on Accreditation of Coaching Education (a division of APHERD).
You can receive 5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completing the Master of Tennis - Performance program through The United States Sports Academy.
It is a mixture of online learning and home study (using the PTR/LMS website), together with two modules of tutor led lecture room and on-court work with players. A maximum of 16 coaches will be accepted for each program which must be completed within two years.
Assessment is continuous throughout the program and is based on on-court coaching, classroom work, worksheets, video analysis and project completion. The coach must be successful in each of the 18 courses to achieve the Master of Tennis qualification.
In addition, PTR has applied to NCACE for the external accreditation of coaches who are successful in the MOT program.
