As the US Tennis Association (USTA) looks towards 2011 with a new initiative designed to engage more kids as early as the age of ten or younger in tennis activities specifically designed for young people, this will be a chance for you to tune in and listen to members of USTA Northern California staff Lita Anderson, Manager of Community Outreach and Silvia Duenas Bielser, Program Rep. for Diversity and Inclusion (and both are Moms) as they have a lively discussion with special guest, Ms. Yolanda Jackson, Senior Director for Athlete Marketing & Promotions for the Women's Sports Foundation, New York City. Founded in 1974 by tennis legend Billie Jean King, the Women’s Sports Foundation is a national charitable educational organization dedicated to advancing the lives of girls and women through physical activity. They are the only national organization promoting all sports and physical activities for women of all ages and skill levels and are acknowledged by the media as the expert resource on all women’s sports issues. Discussion topics of this Blog Talk Radio Show will include the impact Title IX has had on females in sports, the importance of parents understanding how the benefits of sports and physical activity participation for both their daughters and sons can equally encourage them to be active and healthy, and how tennis can even play a role in this. They will also touch on key points which could guide your tennis playing child towards the path of potentially making the sport a career choice and/or playing it for a lifetime.
