What We Do
Coaching For Life Beyond The Court
Aces in Motion (AIM) is a sports-based after-school youth development program that puts best practices in action. Drawing from the sport of tennis, AIM's goal is to help develop and support the whole child, in terms of health, academics, and social-emotional development. We teach the sport of tennis, emphasizing the many intangible benefits associated with tennis, along with life-skill development and academic support.
GACTA promotes health, academic achievement and character development through tennis.
We use tennis and the principles of sport to build a community of children, youth and adults that work, learn and play hard together.
AIM emphasizes academic achievement by providing 1:1 tutoring, homework assistance, college readiness, and school support services to boost student performance and confidence.

AIM believes in supporting the whole child, including social-emotional health. Through mentoring, enrichment activities and peer to peer discussions, students become better equipped to navigate life's challenges.
