Welcome to Season 8, Episode 6 of the ParentingAces Podcast!

This week, we chat with Jeff Bearup, Tim Donovan, and David Benzel who founded CrossCourt Consulting in the New England area. Between them, these three gentlemen have extensive experience working with not only Tennis Parents, but all sorts of Sports Parents, to help their children have a more positive experience.

Realizing there was a gap in the tennis space, Jeff and Tim joined forces to help families better navigate the junior development process to maximize their child's tennis experience. Crosscourt Consulting provides families with the knowledge and framework necessary to help them design a master plan that includes key benchmarks in the player’s tennis development through proper goal setting, tournament planning, periodization schedule and developmental planning. They work with the child's personal coach to ensure the best process and outcome for all involved.

Crosscourt Consulting and Parenting Aces are teaming up to give one lucky junior tennis player a Crosscourt Consulting Gold Plan Consulting Package. 

The 12-month Package Includes:

  • Developmental Planning
  • Tournament Planning
  • Periodization Schedule
  • Phone Meetings
  • Coordination with your Private Coach

To get more information and to enter, click Entry deadline is May 12, 2019.

They are also offering a 10% discount to ParentingAces Families on any package through May 12, 2019. For more information on CrossCourt Consulting and/or to contact them, be sure to visit their website here. The Contact form that Jeff mentions is located online here. I hope to have other members of the CrossCourt Consulting Performance Team on the podcast in the near future.
