Program & Services Overview

Life Skills Development

We weave the nationally recognized USTA NJTL First Serve Life Skills curriculum into all program offerings to emphasize and encourage positive character development, a sense of belonging, and personal achievement. Hands-on activities provide positive interaction and promote social skills development through team building and tennis fitness to help increase self-esteem, awareness, and personal confidence.

Character Education

Young people today are faced with more choices than previous generations. Every child must make some decisions daily without adult involvement. Therefore, students must be armed with the knowledge and moral compassion they need to make the right choices. Character Education sessions use the Six Pillars (Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship) in weekly hands-on activities to encourage students to always do the right thing.

Chess Club and Instruction

Playing chess has proven to help students enhance their creativity, improve their power of concentration, develop and expand critical thinking skills, boost memory and retention and achieve superior academic performance. Chess is extremely popular among our participants. Instructors bring the benefits of chess to students in a manner that is both fun and engaging. We invite students, ages 6 – 18, to join us and experience the exciting world of chess.
