Tennis and Education delivered free of charge
Academic Creative Engagement (ACE), developed by National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) is an out-of-school academic curriculum connected to 21century skills, Common Core State and National Standards and the sport of tennis. ACE is designed to support academic achievement, health/wellness and social/emotional skills and is accredited by the National Councils of Teachers of Mathematics and English. Lessons range from multi-cultural literacy texts to kinetic geometry exercises performed on the tennis court. Learning is active, hands-on and connects to learners with varied learning styles. Cooperative learning is foremost, with a dynamic, interactional style with other students, teachers, coaches and families.
ICT currently delivers ACE programming for no charge at two North Minneapolis community locations: The V3 Sports Center for after school programming and Nellie Stone Johnson Elementary School.
If you are interested in bringing the ACE program to your school or community organization, please contact Education Coordinator, Laura Myers at 612-825-6844
