Announcement:

Tennis New Brunswick is pleased to announce that thanks to the support of the Government of New Brunswick (GoNB Program) we will be offering a Club Professional 1 Coaching Course this summer.  Club Pro 1 is the second level of the Tennis Canada coaching development system. It has been several years since we have offered a level 2 coaching course in the province so this opportunity does not come around very often.  In order to encourage instructors to participate and thanks to the support from the Province, this course will be offered at NO CHARGE to all participants (this course normally costs around $800).  As well, Tennis New Brunswick will be offering travel subsidies to NB participants who travel from out of region of the course.  The following are the details of the course and some additional information on the CP1 course:

What is the Club Professional 1 course?

The required competencies include both on and off court knowledge and skills. Club professionals are trained to deliver quality private and group lessons (1.0 – 3.5 level), design basic lesson content, run introductory programs (socials, round robins, and tournaments) and provide solid customer service that supports the growth and retention of players.
