Coaching During Tournaments

  1. BBTA will send our main coaching team to a total of four (4) major junior tournaments (two Super Regionals, JIT and Junior Nationals). Full tuition is required during tournament months per BBTA’s regular fee schedule. A Coaching Fee of $100 will be charged per student participating in those tournaments. A separate fee will be charged for coaching expenses (e.g. airfare, accommodations, and food).  This fee is calculated by BBTA based upon the total expense. These fees are mandatory.
  2. Should the major junior tournament be hosted locally, there will not be a charge for coaches’ travel expenses. There will still, however, be the Coaching FEe.
  3. BBTA will charge coaching fees of $75 prior to request for any local sanction tournament other than Super Regional, JIT and Junior National.
  4. Every BBTA student is important to us, no matter what level the child is in. BBTA will coach each child as we see fit. Parents should not interfere with BBTA’s tournament coaching arrangement during the tournament. Please bring any concerns up only after the tournament has concluded.
  5. In Singles tournament coaching, BBTA will not be coaching the game if both players represent BBTA. Parents are allowed to coach; however, this is also a good time to train our players for independent tournament play.
  6. In Doubles or Mixed tournament coaching, BBTA will be coaching the team with two BBTA players should the game involve three BBTA students. Parents are allowed to coach.
  7. BBTA Coaches has to focus on the main draw. Coaches will use their best judgment to arrange tournament coaching based on the needs of the players.
  8. Parents must not interrupt the coach during a tournament game.
