A Michigan State University study conducted by Dr. Dan Gould shows that  OVER 70% of kids drop out of youth sports by the age of 13. And the top 3 reasons are adults.

There is no youth problem in youth sports there is an adult problem in youth sports.

Sometimes competitive junior tennis can be especially difficult for both parents and children.

For parents, competitive tennis can become a complex experience, especially if they themselves have not played at a competitive level before.

You, as a parent, want to help your child to manage the new demands that competitive tennis places on them, as you do in other aspects of your child’s life: school, friends, family, etc.

You want your child to be happy, to have fun and to learn to play tennis to a reasonable level, at least.

You know that it is not easy to be a good parent and, it is even harder to be a good parent of a tennis player.

To know what is best to do to help your child and also when and where to do it, is not easy.

There are a lot of questions to ask but it is difficult to know who to ask and for the most part, there are no clear answers or guidelines to follow.

Many problems occur because parents are unsure as to how they can best help their child and so use their natural instincts.

Interestingly enough, research has shown that the support and interest of the parents is crucial to the child’s continued participation in tennis.

However, it has also shown that much of the physical and emotional stress affecting the games of junior tennis players is caused by their parents.

The consequences of excessive stress in junior competitive tennis are uniformly negative and often lead to burnout.

Moreover, if parents put unnecessary pressure on their child, this also can damage their parent/child relationship.

The reality is that parents have a very important role to play in their child’s tennis activity, whatever the level of participation.

Parents need, however, to be trained and prepared for the role they have to play in this team.

Hence the reason for this new program Parent Mental Trainer which has been designed to help you, the parent, to perform better in the competitive tennis world.

We want to inform you, to provide support, tips and guidelines on how to best help your child so as to ensure that you, as well as your child, enjoy your involvement in tennis.
