Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Abilities Tennis clinics. Abilities Tennis of North Carolina (ATANC) provides tennis programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities ages 8 and up. Volunteers play an important role in making these clinics possible for the athletes.

Volunteers will help on the courts assisting with ball and racquet drills to help teach the Abilities athletes the highly adaptive game of tennis. Abilities athletes range in skill level with some learning how to hold and swing a racquet to hit red-dot starter balls and others playing full court with regular yellow balls. Here is ATANC's Volunteer Overview video that helps explain the way clinics are run and how volunteers support the program.

Our training session gives volunteers information about the Abilities Tennis program, your role as a volunteer, Abilities Tennis guidelines, and information on how to work with athletes with intellectual disabilities. We will discuss in detail how to work on the court with people with intellectual disabilities and go over a typical clinic, including how to assist with basic ball and racquet drills. At the end of the training, you will participate in a "real" clinic with the Abilities Tennis athletes for on-the-job training. Come prepared to move on the court. Bring your racquet and water bottle.

Wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes and bring water, sunscreen, and a racquet if you have one.

Thank you again for your time and support. This time on the court will certainly be the highlight of your week! Learn more about the program at www.atanc.org.
