OUR MISSION

Providing kids 12 & under the opportunity to learn, grow and discover their amazing potential through the sport of tennis.

OUR VISION

To create safe and nurturing environments that promote personal development, innovative ideas and synergy across the globe.

  • BROADEN MINDS

    We teach kids more than just how to play tennis. As students engage in play, they learn to calmly use problem-solving and critical thinking skills under pressure. They also learn respect for themselves and each other and make lasting friendships too.

  • BETTER HEALTH

    The power of wellness is a series of conscious choices we have to make every day of our lives. With our hands-on approach, we teach our students just how important proper nutrition and staying active is to their long-term physical and mental health.

  • BUILD OPPORTUNITY

    We tailor our developmental programming in tennis instruction to address individual students’ diverse needs. Every child has a chance to realize their maximum potential including the possibilities of a collegiate scholarship or professional player ranking.

  • THE COACH

    Hi! My name is Cliff, but the kids in our Aces4Kids Sports Explorer program call me Coach Frazier. I am the president and brand ambassador for Aces4Kids Sports Explorer. As a Professional Tennis Registry certified instructor and a former Division 1 college athlete, it’s a blessing to be able to introduce the game to our next generation. Exposing the kids in our program to the values of teamwork helps them to grow as engaged, healthy, and empowered children.

  • CURRICULUM

    We begin by teaching the basics with an emphasis on racquet introduction, hand-eye coordination, and safety. While training in basic court requisites, our kids garner the necessary skills to be effective human beings by expanding their knowledge base and access and access to life-altering opportunities. They also learn to respect themselves and each other resulting in lasting friendships.

ANNUAL FUNDRAISERS

THE ACES4KIDS CHALLENGE

The Aces4Kids Challenge is our annual month-long fundraiser in February meant to take 10 outstanding students and parents from our various tennis programs to attend the BNP Paribas Open Family Day event in Indian Wells, CA. It is an opportunity for donors to sponsor a young athlete’s experience to one of the biggest events in tennis and enjoy a full day of fun activities!

When kids are afforded a rare chance to experience an electrifying event of a professional tennis tournament, their minds expand and they become motivated to learn more. Witnessing the plethora of opportunities the sport of tennis offers students that are willing to put in the required hard work is life-changing.

ABOUT THE BNP PARIBAS OPEN

The BNP Paribas Open located in Indian Wells, CA is the largest two-week combined event outside of the four major Grand Slam tournaments (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and U.S. Open) and the most-attended WTA Premier Mandatory and ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tennis tournament in the world.

FAMILY DAY

Family Day is our annual holiday fundraiser event for the families who have participated in our programs throughout the year. The event celebrates the spirit of the holidays among family on the tennis court. 

Between the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Family Days, Sports Explorer was able to raise over $15,000 in donations. These donations allowed us to supply refreshments, gift bags, and toys (with the help of our partner, 4 Seasons Manufacturing) to all the children. On top of this, we brought in 4 coaches to teach the children high-level drills and games.
