BrightSTARS - Tennis for Me!
in Patrick County
QCV received a grant from the Martinsville Area Community Foundation that made it possible to implement BrightSTARS - Tennis for Me! at two school in Patrick County in 2017. BrightSTARS is a tennis and nutrition immersion format developed specifically for preschoolers by QCV.
The first school was Patrick Springs Primary (PreK-2) which started in February 2017, followed by Meadows of Dan Elementary School (PreK-8) in March. Patrick Springs is led by Deb Roberts. Jewell Frogel leads the preschool program at Meadows of Dan. A grant from the Martinsville Area Community Foundation made it possible for us to purchase equipment for this pilot program.
Each school received 20 19-inch racquets, three dozen red foam balls, two dozen puffer balls, four Tee It Up Tennis! cones, Go Bananas! bracelets and a large selection of Go Bananas! nutrition cards. We'll keep you posted as the programs progress.
