Kids on the Autism Spectrum

Program Description

The goal of Net Therapy is to introduce the lifetime sport of tennis to those in our community who are under-served and have not had the opportunity to learn tennis skills or just need some mental, physical and social wellness in a different format. Tennis is that sport!

Our program is very simple. Register online and show up each week. We have great coaches and volunteers and look forward to getting to know your athlete!

Next session begins Monday, April 13 thru May 11, 2020.

The Fall session will be Sept. 14 - Oct. 26 (not Oct. 12), 2020.
