If you are the parent of an aspiring young player on Long Island, there is a very good chance that "prominent" coaches have told you that "your child has the talent to be a pro." Most of you will be skeptical, especially when they add, "we are the only place with the ability to take them to the top." Some of you, however, prefer to recognize these statements as thoughtful, insightful and a validation of your dream.
Your child is special to you of course, and magical thinking reinforces a belief in the limitless potential of your child's ability.
How wonderful that a coach with a stellar reputation has the special insight to recognize this ability and the glass ceiling has been lifted.
Dreaming may be free, but following this rainbow will set you back 50 grand ... or more.
Fortunately, tennis training is educational, not vocational, and education is priceless.
