Parents Comments- 

  • Brenton, your program offers so much for youth.  It is truly a leadership development academy.  I would like to see you receive a grant and integrate into the school systems.  Thank you for being an amazing a positive influence for Kevin and I. 

  • As far as my comment about you wearing many different hats, I was referring to what it seems you do 'over and beyond' being a tennis coach.  For example:  how you pick kids up, attend the kids' other extracurricular activity events, be like a father figure to some of the kids, hand out advice, help to build and shape the children's characters, and think about their future.  You're like a life coach.

  • Lightning celebrated their win today by playing Uno after their snack. I'm not sure if the kids realized it, but they created a fun "team bonding" time with each other. In addition to tennis, thank you for including the philosophy of team in your coaching.
