Junior Programs

 

As an NJTL Chapter for the USTA Foundation. We are proud to support all of our players on and off the court. SBTA does this through our Elite Tennis and Education(ETE) program. As a player makes their way through the tennis pathway (Red, Orange, Green to Yellow Ball), their support off the court enriches. All players in Green Dot, Elite Prep, Elite B and Elite A, have additional resources that they can use to support them academically. From academic tutoring, speakers and free access to Winward Academy (online SAT/ACT prep) we are an additional resource for success on and off the court.

 

In 1969, the National Junior Tennis League was created by Arthur Ashe, Charlie Pasarell, & Sheridan Snyder with the goal of teaching children the importance of character, getting an education, and becoming productive citizens through tennis. With this program they believed that they could reach those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn, instill the values of leadership and academic excellence, and give kids the opportunity to fully develop their skills creating a lifetime of enjoyment for the sport. 

Today, the now-named National Junior Tennis and Learning network features over 275 nonprofit youth development organizations that offer free or low-cost tennis and education programming to over 130,000 under-resourced youth each year.

NJTL is supported by the USTA Foundation, the national charitable organization of the United States Tennis Association (USTA). The work done by its member chapters includes after-school tutoring that focuses on academic enrichment, a life-skills curriculum and, of course, tennis.

Your success is our success.
