We have another young game changer on The Coaching Podcast in tennis and performance coach, Kelly Sykes. Kelly displays wisdom beyond his years in sharing one of his biggest sliding doors moments that taught him that it's okay to not have all the answers to our students' questions. Kelly explains the difference between mentoring, coaching and psychology and helps tennis directors understand that one of the keys to inspiring the next generation of coaches is in valuing the importance of CREATIVITY! You will not be disappointed with this episode and you can zoom in on Kelly's comments here; Best coaching moment: What we can learn from our students and growing up as part of a military family 2:33 Worst coaching moment; Coaching burnout (self-awareness and talking things out with someone before you pass over your threshold) 5.19 Sliding Doors: Created a mission that time and shared experiences are valuable 7:45 Learn how to be okay with unanswered questions 8.34 It's important to have independent connections (what level of coaching will suit each individual) 10.24 The importance of setting boundaries 11.06 What makes a Great Coach? 13:03 (Diversity, adaptation, and learning) Where do you get your mentorship from? 15.56 How do you grow other people with that mentorship? 16.09 Consider: Are you learning "from" a coach OR "with" a coach for your growth and the growth of others (it's a different perspective) 16.58 What is the difference between a mentor, coach, and psychologist? 19.42 Your best training partner is the wall! 23.39 The skill of learning itself is not just defined by information 27.16 Directors of clubs: Creative ideas will open up new possibilities for this next generation of coaches 32.11 Top tips on igniting coaches' interest in understanding learning - ask yourself: 1) What are your learning outlets? 33.31 2) Do you think there is a difference between learning and development? 34.24 3) Recommendation: Take 1 day a month when you are learning and/or developing and work on not asking questions or not responding and simply just listen and absorb the information or situation (we learn when we are in silence) 32.52 What's next? 34.22 About Kelly Sykes: Kelly Sykes transforms different genres of psychology - ranging from sports psychology to social, behavioral, mental health, and performance psychology to infuse a new purpose for players to understand themselves and their tennis. Kelly has over 10 years of tennis coaching in different tennis fields like player development Coaching, Division I college coaching, wheelchair, nonprofit, and tennis clubs and resorts – specializing in Juniors and Adults alike. Kelly Sykes has received higher-level tennis accreditation from the United States Professional Tennis Association, Professional Tennis Registry, and the United States Tennis Association (USTA), being one of the first individuals to achieve a young professional of the year and all these coaching feats before reaching 25!

REMI. At-home. Home Run. Remote. Whatever you call it, it's the live production workflow that's reshaping the business. It's the act of taking camera and audio feeds from the venue and producing the event from a control room maybe hundreds of miles away in a control room in a broadcast facility. At-home production has broadcasters and vendors rethinking their facilities, gear purchases, staffing, and everything in between. Depending on who you ask, it's the greatest trend in the business or the worst. Rather than discussing the technology making at-home production possible, on this episode of The SVG Podcast we will, instead, get the opinions of some of those working on the front bench of these shows. The true storytellers of the live sports industry. Here's the panelists: - Keith D'Alessandro, NASCAR, Senior Coordinating Producer - Bill Herbstman, Director - Dan Maloney, Matrox Video, Technical Marketing Manager - Rick Seegull, Riedel, VP, System Consulting - Bob Whyley, Tennis Channel, SVP, Production, and Executive Producer We discuss how using an at-home model changes the nature of the live show. What steps need to be taken to ensure the broadcast is not compromised? How they prepare their crews different for an at-home show versus a traditional on-site show. That and much more. The SVG Podcast is for the sports-video–production professional looking to keep up with the latest in sports-video–production operations and technology. The program features interviews with some of the biggest, most influential names in the sports-video business talking trends and topics that are making an impact on the industry.

She's also shattered glass ceilings as a Black woman in sports journalism by staying committed to speaking her truth.

She started reporting with the Tennis Channel and, in a parallel to her own career, covered extensively the white elitism–and sometimes blatant racism– Serena Williams faced on and off the court. Cari spoke with Jay about the retirement of both Serena and record-breaking track star Allyson Felix, highlighting the contributions both women have made to Black women's maternal health. She and Jay also got into it about mental health in sports, the double standards that female athletes face, and what she has been most proud of in her career thus far.For sponsor-free episodes, weekly bonus content, and more, subscribe to The Limits Plus.

#104: Chris Michalowski & Jorge Capestany - What was the one thing that altered the direction of your life?

From time to time, The Coaching Podcast understands that we all lead busy lives, and sometimes you might have less than 10 minutes in your daily schedule to listen to The Coaching Podcast for inspiration. Therefore, our guest coaches this week are Coach Mick (Chris Michalowski) and Jorge Capestany - performance coaches who walk their talk. With years of coaching experience, these bite-sized interviews, from years ago, still hold true today when we reflect on their responses as to what makes a great coach: Coach Mick (1 min, 50 seconds) - believes that a great coach has passion, compassion and empathy. Coach Capestany (4 mins, 58 seconds) - believes that a great coach can see possibilities, is a lifelong learner and can customize their content to meet the needs of the learner. Emma is very grateful to Jorge and his wife, Coach Marty, for their hospitality of love over the years and for introducing her to Coach Mick during a Polar Vortex in Michigan when they were both speaking at a high school conference. You can learn more about each coach below: Coach Mick, Chris Michalowski, USPTA Elite Professional & USTA High Performance Coach From Coach Mick: My ultimate goal is to get to know you better, but first I will fill you in on who I am, just to break the ice. My name is Chris Michalowski. I am a USPTA Tennis Professional and Director of Tennis at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa (click here to see) in one of the most pristine areas of Northern Michigan. Next to my faith, wife and family, tennis is a passion of mine that I hold dear to since I started playing, seriously anyway, at the age of 13. Tennis really broke me out of my shell and gave me confidence in many different areas of my life. I became a ranked junior player and was one match away from winning a state championship in high school. Three years after I started playing, I started teaching at the Midland Community Tennis Center, in Midland Michigan. It is known as one of the top clubs in the nation and recently, Midland won the “Best Tennis Town” by the United States Tennis Association. I loved to teach and wanted to learn as much as I could about the game (it helped my playing too). I knew that teaching was in my future, but my coach at the time encouraged me to stay in Architecture, my other career consideration , because of the long hours and the toll tennis takes on the body. I was accepted into the University of Cincinnati's architecture program, which was rated very high at the time, but the long hours in the studio kept me from playing and teaching. While at Cincinnati, the Ferris State University coach called and informed me that he wanted me to play on the team and take part in their new Professional Tennis Management program, the first ever, endorsed by the United States Professional Tennis Association. I was all over it. I walked through the doors and from there, never looked back. I was a member of the varsity mens team and when I wasn't hitting, I was absorbing all I could to become the best possible teaching professional that I could be. I am still that way and it drives my wife crazy sometimes. But to be honest, I feel that you can never stop learning and becoming even better at what you love to do. I have remained at the resort for 25 years as the director and was a director in the summertime (for 4 years) at one of the most prestigious country clubs in the Midwest at the time. Two jobs was a lot to handle so I decided to stay here where I feel like I was called to be. Thankfully, I stayed or I would not have met my incredible wife and parent four great kids we have been blessed with. One thing that I will always stand by, just like playing a match, is that when you are up 5-2 in the set, remember how you got there and keep doing the things that got you there in the first place. Don't change your game style at a critical time, especially when you are so close to winning the set The same goes for my outlook on teaching and my career. I still average close to 40 hours a week on the tennis court, manage a staff of 12 teaching professionals/instructors and stay active building tennis in my community with sore knees and all. I love being out there and that is what got me to where I am today, so why change things at 5-2 in the set? Do I consider myself an expert? The industry has said yes, but it is not that simple because tennis has changed over time and keeps advancing in exciting ways. I feel that it is important for teaching professionals, like myself , to stay in tune with sport science, new trends and teaching techniques, technology and new ways of teaching the game so that I can stay on top of “my game.” If I taught the same way I did 20 years ago, things would be very different for me right now and I would not have the opportunities and successes that I have been blessed with. Even as a USPTA Midwest Tester, I still learn something each time we administer the teaching exam to new tennis professionals. So what does all this mean? It means that through the use of technology and my knowledge and relationships that I developed with experts from around the world, I hope to be able to have a relationship with you and help in any way that I can to take your game to the next level.

Finding My Own Identity ft. Brett Connors

Welcome to Season 11, Episode 15, of the ParentingAces Podcast, a proud member of the Tennis Channel Podcast Network. This week, Lisa chats with Brett Connors, current producer at the Tennis Channel and son of World Number 1, Jimmy Connors, and his wife, model Patti McGuire. Growing up as the child of world-famous parents can be a pressure cooker. You're always being held up in the world's eye to the uber-high standards set by your parents. In Brett Connors's case, he definitely faced some of that pressure but has found a way to forge his own path and identity both in and outside of the tennis world. Not only did Brett and his younger sister, Aubree, have to deal with their parents' fame but also with their dad's frequent time away from them as he traveled the world competing. That said, their mother found a way to bring a sense of normalcy to their childhood while encouraging them both to pursue their own interests and dreams. After playing both golf and tennis as a young child, Brett eventually chose to pursue golf in college and still plays to this day. Leaving junior tennis and discovering a passion for photography and production have helped him find his own unique identity separate from his "Pops" and also led them both to co-hosting a podcast, Advantage Connors where they talk about tennis, for sure, as well as other topics of interest. To see Brett's photography and keep up with his latest podcast episodes, you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram. The Advantage Connors podcast is on Instagram here. If you're so inclined, please share this – and all our episodes! – with your tennis community.
