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.
To create a Coaching team - go to your Coaching module and select 'Coaching team' in the top right corner.
On the next screen you will see the list of your Coaching team members. You can do that by clicking on 'Add coach' in the top right of the screen.
After clicking on 'Add coach' - you will be able to enter a new or existing coach contact record.
In this example we use an existing contact record. Click on 'Existing contact', enter the name and options will appear for selection.
Select your existing contact, then enter the 'LTA Coach Code' to link the coach with their LTA record and then choose a role: Coach, Assistant Coach or Head Coach. Click on 'Submit' when completed.
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.
After clicking save you will be returned to the coaching team page - and your new coach will show.
From the list above, you can see that our coach does not have LTA accreditation but the coach does have TFK certification and is registered in ClubSpark.
You can assign saved coaches to your courses. Coaches added to the coaching team page will appear in the drop down when you create a course.
