Welcome to Season 8, Episode 23 of the ParentingAces Podcast! In this episode, I discuss the NCAAs with coach – and former University of Miami standout – Todd Widom.
If you follow ParentingAces on any social media, you are well aware the NCAA Division I Championships just concluded down in Orlando at the USTA National Campus. I was fortunate enough to be there for the team finals as well as the first day of the individual singles competition.
While Todd Widom wasn’t able to be there in person, he did watch countless matches online and on Tennis Channel. He and I both have several observations to report and discuss. Tennis parents and junior coaches may learn some things to help their own players reach this highest level of College Tennis!
In case you missed it, I did publish an in-depth write-up of my time down in Orlando for our Premium Members. You can see it here.
Thank you to my son, Morgan Stone, aka STØNE, for our intro and outro music this season! You can find more of his music at SoundCloud.com/stonemuzic. If you’re interested in House Music, please be sure to check out his social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
