C-Level GPTCA Course Certified by ATP


Prerequisite - All coaches must already hold a teaching diploma from any local or international organization.


This course involves a thorough review of the GPTCA C-Level curriculum that promotes effective ways to prepare and elevate young players engaged in the Juniors and Futures pre-tour events. It provides proven techniques and strategies that are successfully utilized by ATP and WTA Tour Coaches. The emphasis is on essential procedures and the effective use of equipment, tools and techniques. This on-line course and the accompanying in-person workshop will enable individuals to more easily integrate the technical fundamentals in an environment where they can have fun, be creative, and develop their self-esteem and confidence while gaining skills and a passion for coaching tennis. While the course is designed for tennis coaches, parents or family members seeking information on how to support a young player in the transition phase can also benefit from the course content.


The course topics are presented through key points. Also included are video demonstrations of lesson management techniques and coaching sessions with young players. The quiz must be taken upon completion of the course and a review of the coach manual. Quiz results must be a minimum of 80% to qualify for certification as a GPTCA C-Level Member and to receive membership benefits.

1. Practice high standards of educational and professional honesty and integrity. Submit for credit only the product of your own efforts.

3. Maintain the confidentiality of the e-learning course by not taking part in any unauthorized downloading, copying, or distribution of course materials.


For most students, this will be an easy course to complete. However, applying the knowledge and being successful in teaching players requires diligent practice. Reviewing the course material, coach manual and other documents multiple times will help students retain the fundamental techniques to effectively address typical player behavior and issues. It is also recommended that students video tape their coaching sessions with players and conduct a self-critique. Students should make every effort to attend an optional in-person workshop. The workshops offer continuing education as well as the opportunity to connect with GPTCA staff/instructors, interact with peers and meet touring coaches.
