TERM COACHING

All tennis coaching classes and match play are based on A.C.T school terms which are generally 10 weeks long.  Each class is run by a qualified Tennis Australia Coach and assistant coaches where required.

Policies

The CTA has a general policy of keeping a student to staff ratio of 6:1 during tennis coaching classes.  Parents should note that, whilst it is rare, this ratio is sometimes exceeded when students are making up lessons for various reasons.

In the interest of managing staff and keeping the student to staff ratios, all bookings for coaching classes are requested to be made prior to each term.
