Fall Tennis was a success. A big thanks to our volunteer coaches as well as our full-time coaches for providing a positive learning atmosphere. Our coaches have benefited just as much as the students in terms of developing growth and life skills. For the middle school and high school group, this quarter, we focused on tennis strategy— being on the offense and defense. For the elementary school group, we focused on rallying with opponent. For both groups, towards the end of the quarter, we played various sports such as, basketball, soccer, and football- promoting athleticism. During the winter quarter we will continue to brush up and polish our tennis skills through teamwork, positivity, and repetition. Our goal by the end of the year is to have each and everyone of our students understand match play and the importance of teamwork.
