Welcome to Season 9, Episode 20, of the ParentingAces Podcast! This week’s episode is once again an audio replay of a Facebook Live interview I did last week, this time with Coach Andy Findlay of Erie, PA.
As the Intense Tennis Camps’ 26th-year director and with over 49 years of tennis experience, Andy Findlay brings confidence, determination, engagement, professionalism, imagination, intensity, resilience, respect, toughness to his coaching. From 1992-2003, Andy was the Head Coach at Edinboro University of PA where he was the men’s PSAC Coach-of-the-Year in 2000 & ’03. Also, Andy serves as co-Head Coach at the USTA Sectional Training Center (STC) in Pittsburgh and has attended 50 USTA national workshops. From 1997-2013, he coached the USTA MS Boys’ 18s at national championship events in Champaign, IL and Kalamazoo, MI. Since 2012, Andy has performed National Coaching for the USTA at the L1 National Spring Team Championships in Mobile, AL and RTCs in NY, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Andy has been in meetings with tennis leaders around the US to devise a safe way to re-open tennis to junior instruction and competition. In this episode, he shares what he’s learned and what he’s implemented at his own tennis facility.
