ITF/OS THEME COURSE COMPLETED
Thursday 25th October 2012

The ABTA today saw the departure of the regional coaches after a seven (7) day long coaching workshop. This workshop included coaches from Aruba, Barbados, Dominica, Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Bonaire and host country Antigua & Barbuda.

This specific theme course was the first of its kind in our region, welcoming ITF tutor Karl Davies. The workshop's aim was to ensure that our coaches both in Antigua & the region were equipped with the information needed for travelling with top juniors and also finding way to facilitate their long term development.

Over the seven day period the coaches were given the opportunity to coach our junior players while being assessed. The assessment was done through every stage of an athletes development ( red court-red ball, Orange court-orange ball, Green court-green dot, intermediate players and advance players.)

The coaches were encouraged to take what they learned back to their respective clubs to aid in the overall development of their national athletes.

The Antigua & Barbuda Tennis Association thanks Olympic Solidarity and the National Olympic Committee for their support of this effort, without your financial support this would not be possible.

We also thank Halcyon by Rex Resort for offering favourable rates to the coaches and to the Halcyon Tennis Club for making their courts available for the afternoon on court sessions, last but by no means least we thank the Ministry of Sports for assisting with the duty concessions for equipment needed for the workshop
