International Etcheberry Certifications
We're proud to announce our partnership with the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) on offering International Etcheberry Certifications!
After working exclusively with Pat, PTR International Director Inaki Balzoa and Master Pro & Clinician Dr. Louie Cap are ready to expand Etcheberry Certifications all over the world!
At an international clinic, you will work with either Inaki or Louie in a 2-day course focusing on how to train your players and make them quicker, stronger, and more conditioned for their matches. To become an International PTR Etcheberry Certified coach, you will have to take a written exam and also pass an on-court test demonstrating what you have learned, the same as you do at our domestic clinics. To help you prepare, you will receive an Etcheberry Strength and Conditioning for Tennis Coaches' DVD set and an electronic study guide.
Check out the International Certification dates on the right side of the page to learn more and to contact Iñaki at email@example.com or your local PTR representative to sign up!
I am thankful that I had the wit and foresight to attend Pat Etcheberry’s certification program. After receiving Pat’s training and his inspiration in Los Gatos, CA, I’ve re-directed my focus from group tennis instruction to private tennis coaching and training. Pat has given me his tools to specifically train advanced tennis players with the exercises necessary to make dramatic and exciting gains in their tennis development. Like many other tennis coaches who have wished they could have ‘been a mouse in the corner’ and observe Pat during his training sessions, and like the other coaches who’ve gone through Pat’s training certifications, we all wish that we could have done this sooner. This would have helped our players we’ve worked with in the past so much more, so much sooner.
I am constantly reminded of all that I was taught at the clinic, and I continue to learn as I work with the tools he gave us there; the DVD’s as well as all the training manuals. I appreciate every day how well these systems work. It is obvious that Pat has thoroughly studied the game of tennis and the techniques necessary to bring out the most from both world class players and all players who need the best training to get closer to their goals.
My training techniques and my players’ successes are being noticed by other coaches and players, and I think they’re wondering how my students and I got to be a lot better, right before their eyes. It’s really not that big of mystery. If they’d ask, I’d tell them … “We’re using the techniques I learned from the best tennis trainer in the world, Pat Etcheberry”.
And a special THANK YOU to Pat for taking special care of my number one player who I sent to your program this last year, 10 year old, Charlie Adams. He’s moved up in our section’s rankings from number 22 to number 7 in the Championship level on the endorsement list! What an edge you’ve given ‘Team Adams’!
