Tennis Australia is thrilled to announce a second regional Junior Development Coaching Course to be shared between two host locations – Cairns International Tennis Centre and Tennis Townsville.

During the Junior Development coaching course, participants learn to develop the skills of junior tennis players through the delivery of the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program.  There is a major focus on planning, delivering and reflecting on coaching sessions and creating positive learning environments for children.  The course covers the Tennis Australia technical and tactical fundamentals, Cardio Tennis, legal and ethical responsibilities of a coach, risk management, program planning, tennis rules, personal development and using technology.

This course has been modified to accommodate the unique challenges that regional coaches face – time and distance. Now only held across 16 contact days in four blocks, this course will be a wonderful opportunity to grow the sport in the north and far north region of QLD.

If you are interested please get in touch with Courtney Haynes [email protected] asap.   The closing date for applicants is close of business, 15th September 2014 (see enrolment form for return details).  If you have any questions, please feel free to call Coach and Talent Development QLD on 07 3120 7918.
