My dad was a golfer and had tried to join the Palos Verdes Golf Club, but it had a waitlist. So instead he joined the tennis club while he waited to get off the golf course waitlist. He then got into tennis with a passion! In the meantime, I tagged along a bit and was first introduced to the sport at that age, I've been involved in one way or another in tennis since then 50 years! TCB: How long have you and Brian worked together? How did that come about? JL: Brian and I started working together about twelve years ago when he moved to Pasadena.

He had been out of tennis for a while and was doing real estate.

Since he lived close to my club at Arroyo Seco Racquet Club and I knew of his tremendous playing and coaching career, I convinced him to come down to the club and coach. We started an academy that we ran a few years together and he was also a partner in a new tennis venture in Riverside. He still coaches on a limited basis at Arroyo Seco. JL: We were co-founders.

Beyond The Baseline: Kerber thinks outside the box

At the time we founded the not for profit, we were initially focused on helping kids who could not otherwise afford the high price of training to be able to participate in high-performance training. That quickly moved into helping out kids on more of a grassroots basis as we joined forces with Scott Harris from Riverside. Scott was running an NJTL program in Riverside that would go for six weeks and then have a break before the next six-week session began.

Recognizing that kids' need continual training to get better, we decided to have Let's Teach fund the program in the off-weeks of the NJTL program so the kids could get year-round training. Carrie is the Fundraising Coordinator for Let's Teach. The auctioneer: Let's Teach Director of Marketing. Anthony Jordan. JL: Yes, we currently have a small Board of Directors.

As part of our strategic plan for growth, we are devising a Board Recruitment plan and identifying the attributes of new Board members that will help sustain and grow our organization. TCB: Did you add the educational components later to tennis or was that planned from the beginning?

JL: As mentioned above, we have only begun introducing "educational components" this year. I think we always wanted to provide some educational components as we want to maximize the impact on young people's lives, we just haven't had the bandwidth to do so in the past. TCB: How many kids are in all programs right now?

We have a smaller number - between 10 to 15 - that we are now concentrating on in terms of delivering a meaningful educational component. One of our tennis pros has a child on the autism spectrum and she was anxious to start creating and running some classes.

We believed this would fit well under our Let's Teach umbrella.

I believe we have about ten kids currently participating. It was basically a network of community providers providing low cost, grassroots tennis. JL: The biggest challenge as of now by far is fundraising, we need adequate funds in order to sustain the organization and grow it. There are many different charities competing for donations, and since we are small, it is difficult to raise the necessary money to get to where we want.

The other challenge for us right now is determining the best educational services to provide kids and how to deliver it. We are long-time tennis professionals, so delivering quality tennis instruction for us is easy.
