The role of the Tennis Parent is crucial in the Junior Development Process. But, if we don’t have a clear understanding of exactly WHAT our role is, it’s much easier to make mistakes along the way.

In this week’s episode, Coach Todd Widom shares his thoughts on what we parents should be doing at each stage of the game. He starts with the early years, moving into the middle school then high school years, explaining how our role changes but also how it stays the same.

  1. Every kid and parent dynamic is totally different. Attempting to give advise on how to hit a forehand is meaningful…trying to advise a parent as to what role they should play is worthless. There are just way too many variables involved.
