Pickleball Certification

ACTC Scholorship Program

The ACTC Seniors PATS Pickleball Program is seeking candidates to complete their pickleball certification through the International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association (IPTPA). 

The IPTPA is an Association that is a world leader in developing teaching standards for the sport of pickleball. 

The ACTC will pay the certification fees as candidates go through the certification process.  

The Seniors Pickleball PATS program is building a pool of certified pickleball instructors so that players, clubs and municipal governments know they are receiving professional, accredited and insured services. 

The ACTC has formed a relationship with a IPTPA Certified instructor who is a Certified Rating Specialist. Based in Kitchener, Looey Tremblay is a international championship caliber player and one of Canada's first IPTPA certified Instructors. 

The 4 stages of certification for professional pickleball coaches and instructors are:

Application - Written Exam - Skills Test - Observed Teaching Lesson

Please contact the Seniors PATS Pickleball Program Coordinator if you are interested in learning more on how you can become a Professional Pickleball Instructor. 

When ACTC has graduates from our the International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association, these certified coach/instructors will oversee the "train the trainer workshops" and provide leadership in all aspects of the program.
