Dear Coach: Please note that TPA memberships expired on Dec. 31, 2018.  

Please go to www.tpacanada.com to renew today so your name will continue to appear on the TPA’s list of certified coaches!  


Please contact Jay Neill if you have any questions about the Tennis Instructor, CP1, CP2 and CP3 courses organized by the OTA.

The Coach 2 and Coach 3 courses are organized by Tennis Canada. Please contact Joan Leung at jleung@tenniscanada.com if you need information or wish to register for those 2 courses.

To register for all courses, please click on the link corresponding to the course you are interested in from the lists below. It will direct you to the TPA (Tennis Professionals Association). 

When you click on the registration link for the course you wish to register for and find it shows 0 spots available, please still register. You will be placed on the waitlist for this course and will be notified by Jay at the OTA if you get a spot in that course. Please also feel free to sign up for a second course in case you don't get into your first choice course.

If you register for a course and subsequently need to withdraw from it (even if you re-register for a course at a different time), you also need to let Jay know this so the original course list can be updated.

Please note that as far as payment for the courses organized by the OTA goes, you will need to provide a credit card as part of the online registration process.  The card will be charged when you register in order for you to get onto the class list.

If you need to withdraw from an Instructor course, please let Jay know ASAP so he can process a refund.

Jay can be contacted at 416.514.1103 (toll-free: 1.800.387.5066 x.1103) or jneill@tennisontario.com
