Our Programs
AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM

GACTA’s Aces in Motion After-School Program is a youth program that uses tennis to promote character development, academic achievement, and healthy lifestyles to individuals of all abilities.

It is a free program offered to  middle and high school aged students every day Monday through Friday. Monday through Thursday we head to the UF Campus for Gators in Motion and tennis, tutoring, field trips, guest speakers and more. Transportation is provided for students who attend Howard Bishop or Lincoln Middle Schools, as well as Eastside and Gainesville High Schools. Students who do not attend these schools must be dropped off by a parent. Kids must be picked up by parents! Pick up starts at 6:30 p.m.

Equipment, snacks, homework help and FUN are provided on site. We offer life skills lessons, nutrition lessons and provide an AIM Family atmosphere. All you need to participate is a completed registration packet which you can pick up from us at TB McPherson, or email Program Director Shannon Fenn at shannon@acesinmotion.org.
