The five day a week classes are tough during season. Plan accordingly. And don't send your kid to Stanford to play in the lineup while also expecting them to get their pre-med requirements done. Doing any major with tennis is hard enough, you end up giving about 30 hours a week to the sport that other kids use for study time. So pick a priority, or compromise = balanced student/person, not one in a sniper tower.
Sounds like child abuse !
