Giving Kids the Advantage

Spring Break Fun

Spring break was a blast this month! We had more than 40 kids in our office participating in educational programming led by Healthy Living Director Anjalee Modasra, staff and volunteers over a two day period. Our high school Excellence kids also were on hand to help us prepare invitations for our annual golf and tennis outing - Fore Love & Money.


Students had the opportunity to rotate through several stations that included: a coding demonstration, making bracelets and origami, painting flower pots and potting mini sunflowers in them and board games / STEM toys. They also got to get outside to play mini tennis, cornhole and other games, and even throw a few water balloons on those hot days!


Thank you to everyone that took time to help us deliver this fun and engaging programming. We couldn't do it without your support!


Enjoy these photos of everyone having a great time!

Adult Tennis Begins This Weekend

Register Today

Don't forget that adult tennis lessons will start back up on April 22. The 5-week Spring Social Adult classes are offered in two sessions each week, in Albany and Schenectady.

The first session kicks off with the Spring Social Adult Family Tennis Class on Saturday, April 22. The Family Class for ages 4 to adults is from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM at Michigan Ave. in Schenectady.

This Family Class is a beginner class for adults and kids to learn alongside each other using a ball progression format, including red, orange, green and yellow balls. Red, orange, and green balls use a smaller court and slower-bouncing balls. These three ball formats are geared toward new tennis players, which allows them to grasp the fundamentals of tennis at their own pace, including grips, preparation, swing path and ball placement. Yellow ball is what most people know as traditional tennis.

We encourage families to come out to play together, but adults are welcome to come by themselves and learn. Kids must attend with an adult. Kids will learn together, and adults will learn together.

The second session - Spring Social Adult Classes begins Wednesday, April 26 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM at Westland Hills Park in Albany, using a ball progression format. Adults will have the option to learn to play in a regular or red ball format. 

The cost to attend each session is $25 per adult for the 5-week program (kids are free). No refunds will be given.

Racquets are available for purchase for $20. If you would like to purchase one, please email us prior to class and we'll have it ready for you.
