Program Snapshot

Tenacity has extended the Pathway to Post-Secondary Success to include elementary grades with Baseline Basics. Tennis is a sport that gets kids moving, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and can teach self-confidence and self-assurance.

Tenacity tennis instructors run tennis clinics at least once a month during the school day for 4th and 5th graders at select BPS schools. The goal of the program is to build a recruitment pool of candidates for Tenacity’s Ace Academy while providing valuable lessons in self-control and sportsmanship.

10 and Under Tennis

By employing the 10 and Under Tennis teaching method, we have made significant strides in keeping students actively engaged. Tennis is a new game for our students, and 10 and Under Tennis allows for faster stroke progression and rallying success by using smaller courts and foam balls. After learning forehands, backhands, and volleys, the students progress quickly to playing games such as King of the Court.

"Tenacity has been a wonderful experience for my students. They truly enjoy working with the staff to learn more about the sport of tennis. It also builds a sense of community and has helped my students work together as a team. They have clearly brought the skills that they have learned on the tennis court into the classroom, and it has helped them immensely as they take on the academic challenges throughout the school day."

Claire Rheaume Grade 4 Teacher

"Tenacity is the best program because of the activities and they teach you a lot about tennis. When I first started tenacity I was bad but the coolest coach taught me and now I know how to play! Thanks Tenacity!"
