TTS Coaches

For the attention of all Table Tennis Scotland coaches

We would like to bring to your attention the importance of ensuring your coaching credentials are up to date and in compliance with Table Tennis Scotland’s standards.

Checking your credentials
All coaches must have valid First Aid and Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport (CWPS) certificates. Both credentials are valid for three years from the date of issue.

We are aware coaches, not part of the Table Tennis Scotland Coach Licence scheme, may be coaching with expired credentials. To ensure that you continue to provide the highest quality coaching services, please take a moment to check the validity of your credentials.

Renewal Process
If you find your credentials have expired or are approaching expiration, please take steps to renew your credentials
