SERVING UP SUCCESS
Our tag line 'Serving Up Success' best describes the essence of our program. Whether in the classroom or on the tennis court, success is about having the right preparation, drive and motivation.
For the students it describes the importance of learning and practicing new skills and engaging in a healthy lifestyle to help build success in life.
For our volunteers and tennis coaches, it means that by ‘serving’ (teaching), we are receiving the blessing of knowing we are making a difference in someone’s life.
THE PASS PROGRAM
Teachers and Wake Up! Officers encourage students to do something they have never done before – learn to play the game of tennis and gain success on & off the court through life skills education.
TENNIS AFTER SCHOOL
Tennis encourages students to be active, stay healthy and practice good sportsmanship.
Our safe, supervised classes promote a sense of belonging, cooperation, support and respect.
Kids love our fun, meaningful classes and learn to be more confident and focus better. Students learn that they can have success not only on the tennis court, but in school and life too!
Life skills education is how we motivate students to better themselves as individuals.
Using the mythical phoenix logo, we define and discuss terms like: believing, self-respect, opportunity, trying, and success, as it happens off and on the tennis court. Tennis games teach kids how to "Rise Up" during challenges and "Rise and Shine" to show how strong they really are!.
PASSPORT TO SUCCESS
Life skills are taught through our PASSport to Success™ curriculum. Students earn T-shirts, tennis balls, tennis rackets and more. Additionally, students earn interactive field-trips to colleges, high-schools and tennis facilities - opening doors to a world many students have never seen or heard of.
