Welcome to Season 8 Episode 45 of the ParentingAces Podcast! In this week's show, I chat with Matt Manasse, former Purdue standout and current Tennis Coach. Matt has a unique perspective on the role of the Player, Parent, and Coach. Having now coached at the college, professional, and junior levels, Matt shares his insights on the similarities and differences in  coaching at the different levels. I think you'll find his approach interesting and thought-provoking! Matt is now co-hosting his own tennis-themed podcast called Double Fault which you can find on Spotify here.
