For Parents

One of the most difficult, challenging, but yet rewarding roles of a parent is to help their son or daughter locate a place to further their education.  Their choices may be many, from a junior college to a large university.  This decision that demands quality time AND is dependent on a student-athlete’s academic strengths, weaknesses and their tennis ability.
