USTA Will Hold 6th Listening Meeting on Sunday
This coming Sunday I will be attending, finally(!), a USTA “listening” meeting. I’ve been working on my talking points for the past several days and hope I have the opportunity to share them live and in person during the meeting.
Earlier this week, I received an email from USTA’s Bill Mountford putting me in touch with Andrea Norman, the new Chair of the Junior Competition Committee. Andrea and I, along with Lew Brewer, will be sitting down together Sunday morning before the “listening” meeting, presumably to get to know one another a bit and to discuss what’s in store for our junior players. I will of course be reporting on the outcomes of Sunday’s meetings, so please check back early next week for any updates.
Below is the information I received from USTA Southern about this next “listening” meeting. Please forward it to any tennis parents or coaches in the Atlanta area and encourage them to attend. It’s important that our voices be heard!
I urge everyone to attend one of the remaining “listening” meetings and/or to email LetUsKnow@usta.com with your thoughts regarding the 2014 Junior Competition changes. If you need a refresher on the exact changes or dates of the meetings, please click on the 2014 Jr Comp Info tab above.
