Mini-Mountaineer After School Tennis Program
Crescent Elementary students in grades K-5 are offered the opportunity to participate in the Net Generation after school tennis program in the fall. Students attend 8 sessions that includes a great deal of physical activity while incorporating academic subjects into that activity. Students perform exercise routines that prepare them for tennis as well as other sports, develop tennis skills, learn how to keep score, learn about the history of tennis, and learn the core values of tennis. By using youth-sized racquets and sponge balls, all students can be physically active throughout each session. From competitions to see who can tap their ball up the most times to partners catching balls in cones, students learn the basics of hand-eye coordination. By the program’s end, students are playing games, keeping score, displaying good sportsmanship, and learning a sport of a lifetime.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This physical activity play is one of the many after school physical activity opportunities we provide throughout the school year. By providing different physical activities, we are able to attract a number of different students based on their interests.
