National Junior Tennis & Learning of Trenton (NJTLT) has been engaging students through Zoom’s web-based video conference app to continue after school programs while the state remains on lockdown amid the Coronavirus pandemic.  Through “Zoom Ashe Practice,” students participate in 40 minute sessions which provides them with skills and exercises to stay engaged and active during this time.

For the past several weeks, NJTLT has provided under-resourced youth in the Trenton community access to interactive lessons via Zoom with the organization’s tennis coaches, teachers and staff. What piloted as a twice weekly offering, has developed into a 4-times-a-week educational and fun curriculum.  Children were offered free computers & iPads along with free access to internet through Comcast.

This program kicked off in the beginning of April with 15 students and has quickly evolved to allow hundreds of students to join in the comradery with their fellow friends and teachers. These virtual learning programs offer kids and their parents a healthy break until the pandemic has passed and the programs are able to resume.
