"The program is not just about learning tennis but through the yoga and meditation, the children have been able to have a connection with their inner- selves. They have learned that through reflection, quiet, and serenity in a peaceful spot, and discovered in their hearts and minds, that they can cope with outside stress and pressure that can be overwhelming during these difficult times. Some of the children reached out to us to tell of difficulties that they encounter in their everyday lives. The fact that they are able to feel that comfortable with their coaches and instructors is such an amazing, humbling, and gratifying feeling." - Tennis Coach
