YMCA of Broward County Turns Staff into Tennis Specialists

February 19, 2008 01:09 PM

On Saturday, January 12th, 2008 at Millennium Middle School in Tamarac, Fla., the YMCA of Broward County, Children's Advocacy Family Center in partnership with USTA Florida, participated in a new 2-hour after school Recreational Tennis Workshop.  USTA National Trainer, Susan Allshouse, led the fun-filled and motivational training for 32 YMCA staff who participated in hands-on tennis activities with an emphasis on character development (honesty, caring, respect, responsibility). The goal was to train the YMCA staff in efforts to start 26 after school tennis programs made possible through a grant from the USTA. 

“The programs will be a great opportunity for the children that we serve in Broward County to participate in something that they may normally never have through tennis,” said Wendy Milordis, YMCA Curriculum and Promotions Coordinator.  “Everyone left realizing that there is more to tennis than a game, and we are truly looking forward to a long, successful partnership with the USTA.”

For more information on the USTA partnership with the YMCA of Broward County, call Wendy Milordis, Curriculum and Promotions Coordinator or Jeff Segal, Wellness Director at 954-623-5555.
