Warrior Leadership Academy
The Warrior Leadership Academy is a tennis and leadership education program offered by Saint Paul Urban Tennis (SPUT) for high school students. Participants must be committed to improving their tennis abilities at weekly drills, and to build the skills needed to become future leaders through off-court workshops and experiences.
NOTE: We also offer a Middle School Warriors Program for grades 5-8. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for application details.
Tennis practice and drills take place on Saturday evenings, November through March, at a local indoor tennis facility. Bus transportation is provided (though not required) to and from SPUT's office at Eastview Rec Center.
Students are encouraged to compete for their high school teams and will also be notified of opportunities to compete in USTA Junior Team Tennis and/or Tournaments.
Warrior students work as a team to participate in workshops focused on player development, personal goal setting, financial literacy, college and career exploration, community service, and more. Additionally, participants are expected to participate with a group of Warriors in off-court mentoring with program volunteers. Please note that dates/times for mentoring sessions will be provided after acceptance into the program.
