We Provide Career Opportunities in Tennis

Yarra Tennis Coaching has contributed to the local community by providing coaching training and experience to many work experience students since 2002. We have also been involved in a number of SBAT (School-Based Apprenticeship Training) programs with Secondary School students from Templestowe College and Parade College. This has given young tennis players the opportunity to develop coaching and communication skills as well as hand-on learning.

Over the past 15 years, Yarra Tennis Coaching players and coaches have completed Tennis Australia coaching courses (including the Level 1 Junior Development and level 2 Club Professional Courses) and enhanced their coaching skills through YTC Professional Development programs.

If you’d like to join Yarra Tennis Coaching and would like more information about a career in tennis coaching, please contact Shane Scrutton on 0414 373 586.
