Ga, I am an older poster with a kid leaving the system when the changes happen,

I am puzzled that the parents of younger children are not concerned about what is to take place in 2014,
and have not been carefully reading along and raising voice about what will be disastrous to junior tennis in this country.

Your question, if it is sincere, would only make sense pre the year of 2010.

By, 2014, the tournaments will be cut by 80%.

How can you be the champion of a tournament that doesn't even exist anymore?

How can winning take care of it, when there will be no Winter Nationals or Easter Bowl?

Regardless whether you like this coach or not personally,
I admire a person who sticks out their neck and stands up for the young juniors in this country.
I agree with you i just know that what we say really doesnt matter so why fight it.Im not going to worry about what they do because they do what they wanna do without including the parents anyway. They RUINED 10 and under tennis and didnt change so why do we think they are going to change anything now.Things the USTA does is out of my control so we are just gonna keep working hard and let wins take care of themselves.Our goal really doesnt have anything to do with junior tennis anyway.
