Proud Parents' Guide Helps Kids Play , Learn & Thrive

             Welcome! 


 

.


 

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Coach Karen Ronney. My mission is to help kids develop coordination, confidence and talent. How? By giving parents, coaches , educators and caring adults a program of information, games and activities to help kids achieve their goals. I believe anything is possible through effort, desire and dedication.

I am an award-winning coach and author, a USPTA and PTR certified tennis teaching professional and a national trainer for the USTA’s QuickStart and Recreational Coaching Workshops programs. I am also a high school tennis coach, youth tennis camp director and a parent of three. I know the challenges of raising and coaching healthy, well-balanced and talented kids.

 

I am also the author of Proud Parents’ Guide to Raising Athletic, Balanced, and Coordinated Kids: A Lifetime of Benefit in Just 10 Minutes a Day, winner of 34 publishing awards, available at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and many other online booksellers.
