Be Healthy, Be Fit, Play Tennis

My students need tennis racquets, tennis nets and Powerbase tennis trainers to successfully learn to play the sport.

My Students

Our school serves students in grades PreK-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, an exceptional leadership team and a safe and secure environment that is conducive to learning. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in our district every year. We are an inner-city school that offers a variety of afterschool clubs. From academics to sports and dance, our teachers give of their time joyfully so that our students may benefit from our experiences and talents.

My Project

The tennis racquets, nets and tennis trainers will help to open up a new world for our students. This tennis club will be geared for students in fourth and fifth grade between the ages of 9 and 11. The students will be on a team where building relationships will be just as important as learning the game. And being in a positive, yet challenging sport will transcend into the classroom as the students will not only feel more confident in themselves but will also be more focused and attentive. They will also be learning how to lead healthy active lives that requires more outside time than inside time.
