CORTA hosts the Special Olympic Area Games each year for all schools or special needs athletes that would like to participate. Last year we had 260 athletes and almost 200 volunteers! It was a day to remember for everyone involved!
Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers and sponsors!!!
Activities includes a Basic Skills group and Unified Doubles group. The Basic Skills group gives the athlete an opportunity to get points for the basic strokes of tennis - Forehands, Backhands, Volleys, Alternate Strokes, and Serves. The Unified Doubles gives the athlete an opportunity to play doubles with an "able" partner. We also have a circuit court for wheelchair athletes. For young children (ages 8 and below) we have a "fun" court set up with an obstacle course and games.
The skills and doubles will take place on court from approximately 9:30 - 12:00. Lunch will be provided for all athletes and volunteers. Every athlete will receive a t-shirt and player bag. Many volunteers are needed to make this day a special day. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Sue Burbelo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or register using the link above.
