She stood on the unpaved and broken tennis court, waiting attentively to receive the tennis ball from her sister. Their racquets were old...their shoes weren't new...in fact, they had holes in them! Their shorts weren't Nike, Adidas, or even Puma. They were actually cut off blue jeans. They were the best they had, but these sisters were ready to play!!! Their names are not Venus and Serena but yet they still have ambitions of tennis fame and glory. As descriptive as this may seem, this is a true description of two of my program participants. This, and other reasons like this, is exactly why I need your help.
