LTA Youth is the flagship coaching programme for junior players aged 4 – 18. Building on the success of Tennis for Kids, LTA Youth is a fresh, modern and comprehensive coaching programme, offering Coaches world class content, via a suite of videos and session plans for all stages of player development. The learning outcomes for this course are:

This practical face to face course is complemented by an online LTA Youth Module. The online unit covers off-court information in detail. To be able to deliver LTA Youth and advertise your LTA Youth sessions on the LTA’s national campaign website, coaches are required to undertake both elements of the training.
