Padel Coaches Registry (PCR) is dedicated to providing top-notch educational experiences for padel instructors and enthusiasts. Whether you are looking to become a certified instructor, tournament director, or just looking for guidance on how to introduce new players to the sport, we have something for you.

PCR Padel certification workshops (Level 1 and 2) are designed for coaches working with players at the beginner and intermediate levels. Each certification workshop is delivered by highly trained clinicians responsible for creating an effective learning environment for all coaches.

Once a coach registers for a PCR certification workshop, they are emailed access to an online video course. Once this material has been completed, coaches attend the 2 1/2-day in-person course. At the conclusion of the course, all coaches will be asked to give a 20-minute lesson, displaying their teaching and demonstration skills as well as their understanding of the PCR methodology as well as a skills and feeding test. In order to complete their certification, coaches will be required to take an online multiple-choice exam within 10 days following the workshop. The online exam measures what you learned throughout the workshop, study guide as well as general padel knowledge.

In order to become certified, coaches must demonstrate an acceptable level of competence in three key areas:

  • Playing and demonstrating skills
  • Teaching
  • General padel knowledge

All workshop participants must be current members of PCR.

For any specific questions, we recommend you consult with an immigration attorney.

Below is a very general overview of the process.

  • Secure employment: Find a padel club in the USA willing to sponsor your visa.
