Our mission is to promote tennis for all ages. To do that, SATA is focused on outreach to underserved youth tennis programs in our communities such as after school programs that serve kids ages 5- 12 and high school programs that serve young men and women ages 14-18. Our goal is to hopefully furnish the proper equipment that helps kids learn that game, continue to play throughout their youth and succeed in the game.
Our Donation Chair, Devin Knox, and our Vice President, Joe Ayala, have been working this year with several of the local high school coaches to identify their tennis program needs. We have been able to remove barriers of entry by providing cases of new tennis balls, shoes and gently used racquets to many schools and players in need.
SATA has also donated to an afterschool academy that offers sports programs to their attendees. These types of programs are critical for our youth to stay fit and active which in turn provides a foundation for the students to be successful in academics.
Some of the organizations we have assisted this year include:
Del Campo High School
Encina High School
Florin High School
Luther Burbank High School
Rio Linda High School
Valley High School
Please contact Devin Knox or Joe Ayala if you have equipment to donate or we also accept cash donations. Donations are tax deductible as allowed under state law.
