Seymour Students Say Yes to Tennis
Students at Seymour Dual Language Academy elementary school are learning all about tennis this spring thanks to a grant from the United States Tennis Association, Say Yes to Education and Syracuse University.
Tennis players from the greater Syracuse community have been working to improve the health of children at Seymour and their families. About 35 students are participating in the program, which is being offered through Say Yes to Education’s Extended Day program. The students will be able to continue receiving the benefits of the program through Seymour’s Say Yes Summer Camp.
The students have seen the Syracuse University Women’s Tennis Team play matches at Drumlins Tennis Club. Between sets, the students were allowed to take the court to show off what they have learned about the game.
Instrumental in bringing the program to Seymour were: Thomas Coughlin, principal at Seymour; Rebecca Jackson of Seymourofus; Janet Eatman, Say Yes site director at Seymour; Naveen Sing, director of tennis at Gold’s Gym and Pat Driscoll, SYTE executive director.
