OUTREACH

S.T.A.R.

Students Together Achieving Results! S.T.A.R. is our after-school tennis and academic enrichment program, for ages 6-18 years old who qualify for free and reduced lunch. It is designed to encourage academic achievement, health/wellness and social/emotional skills by guiding children through educational processes that include decision making, problem solving and working together toward common goals. It is supported through USTA/National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL), USTA Southern, USTA Foundation, and Southern Tennis Foundation. CORTA is proud to be a NJTL Chapter and to have the ability to reach out to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to play tennis. Students selected to participate will receive tennis instruction from qualified tennis professionals as well as academic support from certified educators. Educators will be using the USTA designed Academic Creative Engagement Curriculum (A.C.E.). A.C.E. is designed to improve kids’ attitudes and behaviors around math, literacy and school climate. A.C.E. is an out-of-school academic curriculum connected to the Common Core State and National Educational Standards and the sport of tennis. Activities encourage academic achievement, health and wellness as well as social and emotional skills. In addition to the A.C.E. curriculum, there will also be a life skills component taught through the USTA First Serve Life Skills Curriculum. Topics discussed will include but not limited to: Embracing Fitness, Understanding Nutrition, Improving Study Skills, Resolving Conflicts, Dealing with Peer Pressure and Staying Calm and Focused. Guest speakers from our surrounding community may also be brought in to help mentor and teach students on various careers. Students will also receive a healthy snack/small meal each session. No prior tennis skills are required. Racquets and balls will be provided. There is NO FEE for this program. Program Schedule: Mondays thru Friday 9:00 AM-11:30 AM. Tennis Instruction 9:00 AM-10:00 AM , Academic Enrichment/Snack 10:00 AM-11:30 AM. *Please note this program is limited to 25 students and to those who are eligible for free and reduced lunch
