ACEing Autism: Opportunities for Participants and Volunteers

Welcome to ACEing Autism in Salt Lake City, UT!

We're excited to launch our first session in September 2024. Registration is now open for both Volunteers and Participants.


Session Details: 

Clinics will run from 3:00 - 4:00 pm on the following Saturdays: 

  • September 7, 14, 21, 28

  • October 5


Liberty Park Tennis Center

1105 S Constitution Dr


At the very heart, tennis is a social game that furnishes a natural opportunity to develop and reinforce skills that many children on the spectrum find a struggle:

  • turn-taking

  • focus and attending

  • motor planning

  • fine and gross motor skills and more


At ACEing Autism, trained Program Directors and Volunteers lead Participants through the curriculum. Program Directors meet athletes where they are at and progress through the curriculum at their own pace.


Weekly tennis clinics are offered for children with autism between the ages of 5 and 18. Clinics run for one hour, with sessions running for five consecutive weeks. Volunteers are paired up with a participant, hopefully for the duration of the session.


The children in our program do not need prior tennis knowledge as our curriculum & volunteers support each child’s individual abilities and needs!


Questions?

Directors: Vin Jansen, Tai Jansen, & Thu Nguyen
