Tennis Ireland Licensing Scheme for Coaches 2014
Tennis Ireland in cooperation with Tennis Coach Ireland and the Coach Education Committee successfully launched our Coach Licensing Programme in 2013 with coaches nationwide signing up to the programme. With a total of 209 coaches satisfying criteria in 2013, it is envisaged that in 2014, this number will significantly increase.
To qualify as a Licensed Coach in 2014, our coaches must have the following in place:
1. Amass a minimum of 100 CPD points under the regulations of the TCI Continuous Professional Development Programme for 2013.
2. Hold a Child Protection Certificate that is not older than 5 years (ie certificates held before 2008 are no longer valid).
To update your certificate you can review the 3 vimeo presentations by Roger Geraghty on Tennis Ireland’s website and complete the online quiz here: https://www.tennisireland.ie/clubs/child_protection/useful_resources
3. Be able to provide evidence that you have been vetted within 3 years previously, (Garda Vetting or Access NI as appropriate – Applications completed before 2010 are no longer valid.)
Closing date for renewal of Garda Vetting applications and Child Protection is 31st December 2013.
There is an administration fee of €20 for your licence, payable to Tennis Ireland.
Payment can be made via cheque, postal order or bank draft.
To ensure coaches do not miss the opportunity to be licensed for 2014, we would appreciate your assistance to circulate this information to those coaches working with you.
A leaflet is available on our website containing the required details for coaches https://www.tennisireland.ie/coaches/coaches_licensing.
Please print and post on your noticeboard or this can be posted on your website.
Thank you for your support and dedication to maintaining high standards in our sport.
