Wheaton Indoor Tennis is proud to partner with ACEing Autism to serve up an amazing tennis curriculum! Directed by our teaching pro, volunteers will be paired with kids on the autism spectrum (ages 6-12 and 13-18).

The program helps kids develop coordination, confidence, and social skills through on-court activities that emphasize taking turns, working in teams and following instruction.

Volunteers receive training prior to first class. Tennis experience is helpful but not necessary. Must enjoy working with kids and have high energy. Special education background a plus!

We are seeking mature 15 year olds/high school freshman and older.

Success of this program depends upon consistent pairing of volunteers and participants each week. Volunteers must commit to helping out on all 6 Saturdays.

Volunteer registration and background check required.

SSL approved.
