Summer Camps

SUMMER CAMPS PROVIDE ALL THE POSSABILITIES!
Physically playing a sport adapted to one’s abilities helps to improve balance, mobility, agility, strength, and fitness.  Mentally working on the individual’s focus, concentration, and reactive and problem-solving behaviors.  Emotionally it can promote self-confidence, instill feelings of success, relieve stress, and provide social outlets, such as meeting new friends, enhancing relationships, or providing fun family outings.

CAMP POSSABILITIES
A unified tennis program designed for athletes with autism, down syndrome, and the intellectually challenged to play with an Able-bodied partner (someone without a disability), a family member, or a friend. Let’s have some FUN!

SOUNDS OF TENNIS
Blind and Visually Impaired athletes can still play tennis. The game’s main difference is a larger-sized tennis ball, which jingles to allow players to track and the number of bounces allowed.  United States Tennis Association video link https://youtu.be/GEqryHTTyeY  Let’s have some FUN! 

TEXAS ACE SUMMER TENNIS CAMP
For ages 6-10 for typically developing students. The equipment: Smaller courts, smaller sized racquets starting from 17’’ (compared to 27’’ full-size racquets) and low-pressure balls (Red, Orange, Green) allow kids to start playing tennis at a much younger age. This lets them enjoy the sport and have fun without the frustrations of having trouble handling full-size racquets and the high and heavy bounce of regular tennis balls. Let’s have some FUN!

BEEP BASEBALL SUMMER CAMP  Beep baseball is a challenging, physically-demanding, and enjoyable competitive sport for athletes who are blind or visually impaired. Whether in the batter’s box or in the field, athletes use a combination of strength, skill, and auditory senses to focus on the beeping ball and buzzing bases.  “Beep baseball allows me to partake in a sport that since I was a young boy, I have always deemed hopeless due to my lack of vision. It allows me to have an outlet, even as an adult, for my competitive nature!”
