Tennis Canada’s High Performance staff will help U15 players meet the revised Whole Player Develop Pathway (WPDP) training, competition, competence, and character guidelines.
The core of the support provided through this program is based on assessing each prospect’s daily training environment and identifying any gaps that can be filled with support by a National Coach at the Regional Training Centres, in their home training environment or with competition support
The U15 Canadian Prospect Team is identified using a combination of criteria including player profile (technical, tactical, physical, mental competencies), competitive results, and environment including parents’ and coach’s collaboration and commitment. A committee, led by the Head of U15 Development, and including national coaches, will make annual decisions.
- Final U15 Canadian Prospect Team nominations will be made annually following the Outdoor Junior Nationals.
- Selected players will remain part of the program for a minimum of one year, provided that they continue to demonstrate strong commitment to development and improvements.
