We understand the L3 Nationals are very competitive events with
National points, but hope everyone understands this is a long
journey. If you want to provide a positive environment for your
child to learn, grow and develop a passion for this game, be kind
and reflective with other parents and competitors. Parents and
competitors can either contribute to making these events a positive
or negative environment with how they behave.
I look forward to watching some great tennis this weekend and
meeting some very nice folks from around the country!!!
