Tennis Event at Salisbury University
In the fall we took a group of approximately 90 students to Salisbury University for a morning of tennis play at their state of the art facility. Kids actively participated in tennis games and play, and had the opportunity to watch two members of SU's women's tennis team practice and play a set against each other. At the conclusion of the demonstration the two student-athletes held a question and answer session with our group of kids, answering a variety of questions on the game of tennis, playing competitive tennis at the collegiate level, the importance of academics, time management, nutrition, and making smart decisions in regards to what you post on social media.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Collaboration between colleagues in the Wi Middle Physical Education department, Wi Middle administration, supervisor of Physical Education, SU facilities, SU tennis head coach and players, and parents of students.
