Competitive Pathway Webinars and Q&A's For Tennis Parents

November 22, 2023


The USTA is proud to offer a series of lunch-and-learn webinars, both live and on-demand, to help tennis parents navigate the sport’s competitive pathway. In these sessions, most of which are just 30-minutes, we bring to you leading experts, current tennis players, and world-class coaches to discuss the USTA’s approach to competitive tennis while also focusing on mental health.

 

By the end of the series, parents will better understand aspects of health & wellness in the context of junior competitive play and be able to apply best practices to their child’s tournament experience. 

 

See below for our upcoming schedule and pre-register today. For past sessions, we are happy to provide them to you to watch or listen on-demand.

 

Enhancing Your Child’s Well Being Through Competition

Join Co-hosts Dr. Shawn Foltz-Emmons and Dr. Larry Lauer, on how parents can improve the performance and well-being of their child in competition. Starting with Dr. Brian Hainline, who is the first Chief Medical Officer of the NCAA and oversees the NCAA Sport Science Institute, to kick off the series,  we will then delve into practical outcomes on how you could support your child before, during, and after competition.
