Platinum Talent Development Coach Program

Platinum Talent Development

Platinum Talent Development

Tennis Australia’s Talent Development department recognises and supports coaches who are excelling in the development of players 14 years old and younger. The Talent Development Coach program is designed to formally acknowledge the contribution made by select coaches, along with providing resources and opportunities for these coaches to continue supporting their players.

Within this program two tiers of recognition are provided to coaches, with the highest level forming the Platinum Talent Development Coach group. This heightened recognition status is reserved for coaches who have shown to be National leaders in the field of developing leading junior players.
