Parents, for those of you who are brand new to this junior tennis tournament scene, get educated! One of the best resources is from my friend Lisa Stone who has a great website! See http://www.parentingaces.com.
With two little ones of my own and having been a pro and never gone the junior route in the US I will most certainly continue my junior tennis education from her website and from her podcast! Enjoy!
Lisa Stone loves tennis, as I do. She also cares deeply about higher education, about American families, and their tennis journeys, as do I. ParentingAces is a great source for tennis information – including about junior tennis and college tennis. ParentingAces provides valuable opportunities for tennis fans, those new to the game and those who have been passionate about our sport for years and years, to exchange ideas. Lisa recognizes that we may not all always agree, as the world (and the tennis world) is not simply black and white (or green and yellow). One thing we will all agree on is that we want American tennis to thrive, American junior tennis to prosper, and college tennis to flourish . . . for years to come. Thanks, Lisa! Keep up the great work.
Dear Lisa, as a parent of two competitive tennis players I wish to give you a heartfelt thanks for all the tireless work you put in every week on social media to inform, educate, and guide those of us who try to navigate the often mystifying waters of junior and college tennis. As people who had no background whatsoever in US tennis, having grown in a different country, my wife and I had to rely on few advisors and a lot of information found on line in trying to figure out how to best advise our daughters on tennis related matters. In doing so, I have found your blog ParentingAces, your Facebook posts, podcasts and tweets always thoughtful and informative. Your knowledge and genuine enthusiasm for the game is refreshing. You always come across as sincere and willing to help, either by educating about how to choose a college or how to deal with players who tend to make “bad calls” or by sharing with the readers the details of healthy diets or the challenges of traveling with your child to tournaments. You have an obvious unpretentious attitude and speak from the heart. You certainly helped this father to keep up with the scoring and the action at the NCAA tournament in Athens. I hope you will continue to support junior and college tennis and keep your readers and listeners informed for many more years.
ParentingAces is a must-visit website for anyone interested in junior or college tennis. Lisa Stone’s personal experiences – as well as her relationships with others in the tennis world – make for quality stuff in her podcasts, analysis, and guest content. We always appreciate it when Lisa makes time as a contributor to TennisRecruiting.net, and I know that ParentingAces will be an important part of the landscape of junior and college tennis for a long time.
ParentingAces has the most informative junior and college tennis podcast out there. I love the different guests that Lisa brings on which provides different viewpoints on a wide variety of topics. Whether it be junior development, the recruiting process, scholarships, staying healthy, or just hearing wisdom from people that know what they’re talking about – Lisa has it covered. Great site for all to enjoy!!!!
Tremendous resource for juniors, parents, and tennis enthusiasts. Thanks, Lisa for having some of the top minds in our game on your podcast and providing great insight for kids and parents and for always being an advocate for our great sport.
During the last few years as Head Coach of the Men’s Tennis Team at UVA, I’ve seen Lisa at multiple matches and events. She is committed to covering college tennis in a way that gives parents a look inside the game, helping them understand the realities of the recruiting process and playing at a high level. Lisa’s energy and passion for our sport are really needed. As I move into my new role with USTA, I look forward to working with Lisa and ParentingAces, especially as we work to continue growing the game in the US and around the world.
I was fortunate to discover ParentingAces when I began the tennis parenting journey a couple years ago. Lisa’s wisdom and passion for junior and college tennis is undeniable. The weekly podcast provides a window into some of the best minds in tennis. From a variety of perspectives, the podcast covers everything from lessons learned from other tennis parents (including Steve Johnson, Sr. and Tracy Austin), life on the tour, goal setting, finding the right coach, tournament prep, and maximizing your time on the court. It is always worth a listen – there’s always something to learn.
With the ParentingAces podcast and website, there is no excuse for any tennis parent to say ‘I don’t know’ – Lisa has the answers!
Whether it’s via her weekly radio show or her ParentingAces website or social media, Lisa Stone is always on top of the important issues in junior and college tennis. The information and resources she provides–for players and their families just starting out to those preparing for college tennis competition–can’t be found anywhere else, and her love of the sport shines through in all her outreach. I hope she’ll continue to connect all of us in the tennis community for many years to come.
Lisa Stone of ParentingAces is one of the most passionate people that I have come across in tennis media. Her blog provides deep insight into junior and college tennis. ParentingAces is a notable source for educating tennis parents.
