To provide children with Autism an introduction to the lifelong sport of tennis.
A camp day features group tennis instruction, fitness training, a hands-on team building or social activity, snack and lunch (brought from home - no peanuts, please).
Each camper will partner with a volunteer coach - local high school and adult community volunteers - who will encourage an interest in tennis while modeling appropriate on and off court behaviors. All of our coaches participate in a training session. We appreciate that our coaches give the time they can; not all coaches are available every day of camp or every year. Our Pro (lead tennis instructor) is at camp every day.
WSTA works in partnership with the Town of Simsbury Parks and Recreation Dept. We meet at the Henry James Middle School rain or shine and have full use of tennis courts, rest rooms, cafeteria and gymnasiums.
