Tennis Apprenticeship

Job Title: Tennis Apprentice (Assistant College Tennis Coach)

I’m looking for an ambitious tennis coach who is interested in eventually becoming a college level head tennis coach. A college head tennis coach is a position that allows you to have a full-time career in tennis. College head tennis coaches are in position to run a competitive intercollegiate tennis team, run a profitable tennis academy, and/or run a tennis program that benefits the surrounding community. As a college head tennis coach myself with experience coaching in two different colleges, I have learned what athletic directors look for in a college head tennis coach and what administrative, technical, and interpersonal skills you will need to be a successful college head tennis coach. I have learned many of these skills over several years, but in this apprenticeship, you will learn them much quicker and be in a strong position to eventually run a college team of your own.

The Tennis Apprentice must have a strong passion for teaching and learning tennis. Your athletic or playing ability is not as important as your desire to teach and learn. You must also be punctual, reliable, and professional at all times.
