What Tennis Parents Say…

“Maggie had such a great weekend. As always, after she works with you she just seems more grounded and focused. She’s less likely to look around and get distracted during her match. She’s more focused on one point at a time. Also, as a parent, I’ve learned to encourage her and not focus on outcomes.”*

Tennis Parent

“Since you last worked with AJ, his National ranking has improved from 349 to 148. His tournament record at one point, since talking with you was 17-4, with 3 of the 4 being in third sets or tiebreakers. Your help has definitely improved AJ’s results and his on-court demeanor has substantially improved.”*

“Patrick played very well this week at the U14 national championships. He won both singles and doubles. Most importantly he kept his cool with an amazing attitude in the singles semis (playing his best friend) in the final against the number two. It has been a joy watching staying calm instead of getting angry.”*
