In December, several of our Special Education classes at Elkins Pointe had the opportunity to participate in an Adapted Tennis Program in the gym. The program took place during the students' regularly scheduled Adapted Physical Education classes. Coach Lambert welcomed an outstanding group of guest instructors led by Fiona Hatton of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and her dedicated group of volunteers from both the USTA and Special POPS tennis. The students had the opportunity to learn basic tennis skills such as volleying, ground strokes, and other basic racket skills. By the end of the three week program, students were hitting balls back and forth over the net! This experience was both fun and educational for all of the students. It also provided students with exposure to a new activity which will help to keep them healthy and active for a lifetime.
