Last week, we spoke with ITA CEO Tim Russell about the ITA’s recently-announced partnership with WTN. Many of you are feeling some confusion about how best to position your junior player(s) to find a college tennis playing opportunity – do you play USTA tournaments, WTN tournaments, ITF tournaments, or does it even matter?

Danielle has recently transitioned into a new role as a consultant to players and parents who are struggling with training, scheduling, and/or recruiting. In this week’s episode, she gives some very helpful tips and advice to make the Junior Tennis Journey and College Recruiting go a bit more smoothly.
