Racket Activities For PE!

My students need 24 tennis rackets, a bucket of quick start tennis training balls and a quick start mini tennis net.

My Students

Help me enhance my PE program! My elementary students want to learn the prerequisite skills necessary to be successful in tennis and other racket activities.

My students attend a K-12 charter school in North Carolina.

Once in middle school my students will be offered the opportunity to participate in tennis and other athletic programs. My elementary students are very active and seeking opportunities to learn new skills.

My Project

I am looking to enhance our physical education program by adding a developmentally appropriate tennis/racket activities unit, focusing on fundamental skills. I cannot start this program and teach my students these skills without the necessary equipment. Obtaining the materials I am requesting will help my students develop tennis/racket skills such as; hand-eye coordination, tracking, racket grips, strokes and much more!

As obesity, diabetes and inactivity rates increase in our society it is important that we provide children with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead active/ healthy lifestyles.

I would like to offer you an opportunity to contribute to my classroom and our future by helping students develop their racket skills!
