Southview Supports InnerCity Tennis

...and their signature program, Kidspeed

Southview Design is proud to be involved with the 6th Annual InnerCity Tennis/Kidspeed Benefit on October 9th at the Eden Prairie Life Time Athletic Club…..and you don’t have to be a tennis lover to support the programs at InnerCity Tennis at the Reed-Sweatt Family Tennis Center. 

If you are unfamiliar with the program, just click on this link to see the Saturday program in action

Kidspeed integrates fun and physical development of athletics with valuable life skills that serve our children and community far beyond the borders of the court.  The InnerCity Tennis approach has proven to be very successful, yielding a mesurable 20 to 40 percent behavioral improvement in the life skills it teaches to over 5,000 children annually.  And the program continues to expand…now introducing physical skill development for basketball, soccer and golf as well as mathematics and literacy elements. 

Kidspeed is designed to promote healthy development of children starting at ages 3-8 through team experience emphasizing following directions, learning rules, sharing and taking turns, and helping others. 

The Benefit proceeds support the activities of InnerCity Tennis and the Kidspeed Program.  For 58 years, ICT has partnered with community agencies and other youth-serving organizations to help inner city children and youth build a lifelong passion for sports, fitness, nutrition, and personal excellence.

But, if you do love tennis….consider joining us at the Reed-Sweatt Family Tennis Center for the clinics….
