SCVTA was founded on the principle of growing tennis and fitness while achieving academic excellence and is the first program of its kind developing and building talent from the grass roots in the Santa Clarita Valley. SCVTA also hopes to extend its reach to the wheel-chair bound and children with special needs, developmental and physical disabilities. To achieve this, SCVTA looks for donors who might share the same mission as we do to keep kids in school and reach those who are challenged economically, developmentally and physically. Every donation provides much needed money back to our organization to help with future programs.
