$119 for Six Weekly Children’s Tennis Lessons ($240 Value)
Kids embark on their tennis odyssey via one of three classes, chosen based on their initial skill. Zen Tennis Level I teaches beginners the fundamentals of coordination and motor skills by running students through moving drills and aim and fire exercises. Zen Tennis Level II builds on existing knowledge with more complex drills and conditioning regimen. Zen Tennis Level III thrusts intermediate students into exercises that sharpen finer skills, such as racquet control and body coordination. Classes take place once a week for six consecutive weeks.
Built around Dr. Sankofa’s Life Path Development Model, Zen Academy helps children excel both academically and physically. Instead of hosting study hall sessions, their after-school tutoring programs introduce children to their future passions, such as aviation, martial arts, or tennis. Educators with real career experience lead students through basic and intermediate lessons that not only cover the subject at hand, but also strengthen math, self-discipline, and reading comprehension skills along the way. Learning about air currents flowing over wings enriches students’ understanding of science, and fine-tuning their back swing inspires increased activity, reducing parents’ fears that kids will wind up in a fast food joint working as a box of french fries.
