ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ATHLETICS
Expanding athletic programs to elementary students, ABC launched girls’ soccer, youth tennis and martial arts programs throughout CPS.
Working with the Cincinnati Woman’s Club, ABC launched a girls’ soccer program teaching basic, instructional soccer for grades 4-6, serving over 400 students across 25 elementary schools. Through volunteer coaching and support from community recreation partners, ABC provides Fall and Spring seasons of the program.
In partnership with the USTA Midwest and Greater Cincinnati Tennis Association, more than 5,000 students participated in the youth tennis program across 32 elementary schools. Using youth-sized equipment, the program is designed to support student participating in a gym or any flat surface, allowing thousands of students to participate in the fun of learning and playing tennis.
The Martial Arts program serves young girls and boys through a partnership with Five White Tigers Martial Arts. This after school program promotes discipline, structure and personal awareness in elementary students, giving them opportunities to develop mental and physical skills that can be used in and out of the classroom.
