The International Tennis Performance Association [iTPA] has announced that Bermuda’s James Collieson has achieved the Certified Tennis Performance Specialist [CTPS] designation by passing a competency-based educational curriculum.

CTPS is considered the gold standard in the industry, and focuses on “in-depth, evidence-based tennis-specific training research provided in a practical manner which builds knowledge and skills when working with tennis players of all ages.”

A spokesperson said, “The iTPA is the worldwide education and certification organization for trainers, coaches and specialists who are passionate about tennis-specific performance enhancement and injury prevention.

“Through quality, evidence-based education overseen by a Certification Commission comprised of world leading experts, the iTPA offers three levels of tennis-specific certification: Tennis Performance Trainer [TPT], Certified Tennis Performance Specialist [CTPS] & Master Tennis Performance Specialist [MTPS].

“The educational curriculum is competency based, which ensures individuals who become certified have the knowledge, skills and abilities to effectively train tennis athletes at all levels of the game.”

Dr. Mark Kovacs, Executive Director, said, “James has taken an important step in his career as a tennis performance specialist and has shown his dedication to tennis-specific knowledge, expertise, and continuing education.

“Training tennis players requires specific knowledge about the unique movements and demands of tennis which is different to most other sports, and the iTPA has the role of bringing the most credible information, backed by science, to educate and certify individuals who work on improving physical performance and/or preventing injuries.”

“Certified individuals such as James have exclusive access to The iTPA Inner Circle Member Only Website, which includes updated tennis-specific articles, information, webinars, videos and more. They also must maintain 200 Continuing Professional Education [CPE] credits every two years.”
