After covering the All-Time Winningest Coaches list for Divisions I, II, and III, it is time to honor the most successful NAIA Women’s coaches. Through the last decades, student-athletes had the honor to receive coaching advice by the most well-renowned coaches through their collegiate tennis careers.

Matt Turk, CSUN Athletics, dove into the dual match records to find the top women’s tennis coaches of each division.

To be selected, the coach must have at least 10 years of head coaching experience at an NAIA school, and it includes all victories as a coach at a four year institution.

Below are the top 12 NAIA women coaches by all-time win percentage. See everyone who made the All-Time by Victories and Active by Victories lists.

The ITA is excited to provide all-time coaching records. If you feel there is an omission or correction that needs to be made please contact Caroline Huey. Coaching records are current as of August 1, 2020.
