You can create a Coaching Team for your organisation, give coaches roles e.g. Head Coach, Coach or Assistant Coach and assign coaches to various courses. This also includes the ability to see if a coach has an LTA Accreditation and if they are qualified for the Tennis for Kids programme.

On the next screen you will see the list of your Coaching Team. Here you will be able to add new coaches and manage your coaching roles.
To add a new coach, click on the 'Add Coach' button in the right hand corner of the screen. You will then need enter the details of the coach. If they are already within your contacts select 'Existing Contact' where you will be able to search for their record.
You will then need to select which coaching role you would like them to have and press 'Confirm'. You will now see the Coach appear within your Coaching Team and an invite to register will be automatically sent to them.
From the list, you can see if a coach is LTA accreditated and TFK certified. You will need to add their Coach Code via Edit Contact
You can also add a coach to your Coaching Team, when creating a course. Within the Class Defaults of the course you are creating, select the '+ Add' button next to Coaching Team where you will be able to add the coach without leaving the create a course page.

If you wish to remove a coach from your coaching team. Select the coach, and click 'Profile Options' and 'Edit Contact'
You will then need to scroll to the bottom of their contact record and untick their coaching role and press Save.
Please note - This is also the same place where you can add the coach's LTA Coach Code.
Tip: If the LTA Coach Code isn't recognised - please make sure the format entered is: CO0…. - i.e. C and O (alpha) followed by zero '0' (numeric) and then the rest of the numbers.
To verify any LTA Coach Codes not accepted, please get in touch with the LTA at firstname.lastname@example.org
