Teaching life skills through the game of tennis.
"I quickly discovered that teaching was less about the nuances of tennis and more about inspiring students to understand that change was within their own power."
Sneha, PASS Coach
AFTER SCHOOL TENNIS
Our program is available to 4th - 8th grade students in partner Title 1 schools within the greater Phoenix area.
PASS provides well-trained instructors, all the necessary equipment and a healthy snack to ensure student success.
The cost to join is commitment and being personally responsible.
LIFE SKILLS EDUCATION
We seek to empower our students in order to better themselves as individuals. We define and discuss terms like belief, respect, commitment and taking responsibility for your actions.
As students grow and embrace our program, so does their self-esteem. Empowerment, plus education, leads to success.
Entering our third year of collaboration, the PTC hosts about 60 students weekly at this beautiful 25 court facility.
All of our title 1 students find their own transportation to take advantage of this incredible opportunity
The PTC has allows us to do special community events and summer camps to grow youth participation.
SUN DEVIL BALL KIDS
Responsible students earn the right to be trained as ball kids, which requires significant commitment and training.
The Sun Devil Ball Kid program is the only one of its kind in the entire nation. It provides local kids with a unique tennis experience serving on court during Division 1 matches.
“I learned that if you try, you can accomplish new things and it will encourage you to try harder.”
