ICT helps young people build character, competence and commitment to healthy habits and a life-long love of physical activity.
Our goal at InnerCity Tennis is not to develop the world’s greatest tennis player or the next tennis phenom who will compete in the US Open. Simply put, we want to show children that they can be GOOD at anything they want to do. Don’t get us wrong, we teach the fundamentals of tennis very well, but the bottom line is that building a healthy child is more important to us than building a tennis player. We want each and every player that comes through our program to experience success. And not the typical kind of success you may be thinking about. At InnerCity Tennis, we define success as an improvement in one’s own ability to do something. All our Kidspeed stations have been designed so that kids can achieve success and see improvement in themselves. When children notice improvement in their own skills and ability, we see them become inspired. We see it in their eyes. They are confident, ready to take on the next challenge they face. That is our goal, to equip kids with the confidence to do their personal best - and yes, we are very GOOD at it.
