All Stars Tennis with Aceing Autism 2016
The Scituate CORSE Foundation and Scituate Youth Center
are collaborating to offer All Stars Tennis.
The mission of this 6 week program is to make the sport of tennis available
to children with special needs that cannot access a typical program.
Each week will introduce or address different basic tennis skills.
Children ages 6-22 will learn basic ball and racquet skills.
Programming is individualized to fit each participant based
on their prior tennis experience, developmental level and motor abilities.
Many children will benefit from seeing a visual schedule and cues like
place-markers, cones, arrows and targets to help focus.
All tennis equipment is provided.
Sneakers are mandatory, bug spray and water are recommended.

Therapeutic Riding has many benefits for children with special needs
including physical, sensory, emotional, cognitive and social.
This program will introduce the child to all aspects of the riding experience including: becoming familiar with the farm setting, the animals, the equipment and the aspects of riding. The program will be instructed by Linda Adams,
Owner and Director of Riding Services at Booth Hill Farm.
Linda is a licensed riding instructor, teaching locally for over 30 years. She is a member of AHA (American Hippo-therapy Association) and
NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped).
All children are required to wear long pants, boots and have a helmet.
