The Vida Coach Pathway

Vida Tennis has a pathway for each coach tailored to their specific needs. There are many reasons people get started in the tennis industry and understanding the “why” is important in getting the best outcome possible.

Each coach with Vida is an employee (casual, part time, or full time), and there is a progression pathway which is continually assessed. There are several options within the company:

  • Casual employee – hourly rate plus superannuation
  • Casual employee with a bonus program attached
  • Part-time employee (with bonus programs)
  • Full-time employee (with bonus programs)
  • Work-to-own program

Coach pay rates are clearly defined in the employee contract, which also highlights the progression process and bonus/incentive program roles. There are options to fit most coaches’ goals and vision. Whether you are a uni student looking for a part-time job or a career coach looking for a long-term plan, the options are there.

As a coach progresses through their pathway, they have the option to take on more responsibility, such as managing programs, venues, or a school. Progressions are only limited to the attitude and desire of the coach, with ownership of business units an option for the right people. There are many examples currently in the Vida team where a coach has been part of the “work-to-own” program and is now the owner of a business unit.
