Résultat désiré à long terme
Our long term desired income is to create leaders in the community, provide them with the self confidence so they do well in school and go on to University. We want them to be healthy and have the skills to play sport for life.
One student who was 14 years old when he came to our organization was just playing video games all day in his apartment. He tried the program and loved it, he lived on the courts, volunteered 400 hours for us and then we paid to have him take the Tennis Canada instructors course. He is now teaching in a leadership position other kids in the program. What is amazing about Siyr is that he was going to Ridgemont High at the time and didn't play high school sports. After his first year with us he joined all his high school teams, he developed goals, graduated and has now completed his first year at Carleton. He came to me one day on the courts and said "Thank - you for changing my life." that is what we are about. Siyr says' Tennis has taught me perseverance. I can now set my goals as high as I wish and know if I work hard enough I can achieve it'.
We want all kids to have that opportunity.
