FAQ

How long is the membership period?

WTCA membership is a 12 month membership recurring from the date of sign up. You know exactly what you get when you sign up, we don’t mess with pro rating or coaches mission out on any educational time.

Do you have to be a coach to join the WTCA as a member?

NO. We welcome everybody who is involved in women’s tennis to join our community. Parents, coaches, support teams, players, doctors, physics therapists and many other “stake holders” have already joined the WTCA as a Pro member.

If its not just for female coaches why is it called the women's tennis coaching association?

The association name says it all: The WOMEN’S TENNIS coaching association. So any coach of any gender male, female or non-binary working with a female player is essentially involved in women’s tennis coaching – add association to that and you have the WTCA. A coaching association exclusive to female coaches would likely be named The Women Tennis Coaches Association or something similar.

Can males become members of the WTCA?

YES Absolutely! The primary goal of the WTCA is to educate all male and female coaches working with female players.

Does the WTCA membership include insurance?

At the moment the WTCA does not have an insurance policy. We are not in the business of certifying people as coaches – we leave that to our other partners.
