Overview


Mission Statement

     First Serve Santa Ana's mission is to promote educational, physical, and social development of youth in the City of Santa Ana through tennis and educational activities.

Background Statement

     In 2007, three former coaches from the Santa Ana Unified School District formed a community tennis association because they witnessed that their students were at a competitive disadvantage when they played against other high schools.   FSSA initiated a tennis program at Harvey Elementary School in the SAUSD with an enrollment of approximately 425 students in grades K-5.  This elementary school is adjacent to Valley High School.   Enrollment is predominantly Latino (97%) with 99% on Free and Reduced Lunch.  First Serve Santa Ana was recognized by the California Secretary of State in February, 2008. FSSA incorporated and filed for 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit status with the IRS on June 6, 2009. 
     FSSA operates on approximately $9,000 a year as outlined in the financial section of this profile.  Our organization has received funding from United States Tennis Association Tennis grants, Simon Foundation, Santa Ana Kiwanis Club, TNT Fireworks Stands, Adult League Play, along with some individual donations of various amounts.  Expenses are for tennis equipment, promotional incentives, and normal business costs.  FSSA recruits high school students from tennis teams at two local high schools to help coach students at the elementary and intermediate schools.  These students are trained to work with young students utilizing coaching principles advocated by the National Junior Tennis and Learning, Vic Braden’s Junior Tennis Ambassadors program, and FSSA’s instructional team.  These high school students serve as positive role models for the youngsters who participate in the program.
     During First Serve Santa Ana's short existence, our organization has become well known throughout the school district.  We feel that if we had the resources—personnel, financial, and time—the program could enrich even more students.  FSSA’s vision is to be in as many schools as possible.  We feel that with our limited resources we have influenced many in developing confident kids through tennis.


Impact Statement

After-school and Saturday Programs

FSSA focus is on students who attend after-school programs at Adams and Harvey Elementary Schools in the afternoons from 2:30 to 4.  In addition, FSSA operates an open entry/exit program at McFadden Intermediate on Saturdays from 9-11:30 a.m.  The after-school and Saturday tennis enrollment and participation are as follows:
Adams Enrollment is 45 students in the second and fourth grades x 1 hour each Wednesday x 30 schools days = 1,350 hours per school year
Harvey Enrollment is 94 students in grades 1-5 x 30 minutes each Friday x 30 school days  = 1,410 hours per school year.
Saturday Tennis @ McFadden Intermediate averages 23 students each Saturday x 2.5 hours x 30 days = 1,725 hours per school year.
 
Player and Coaching Development 
 
In 1980, Dulce F. began to play tennis in Sophomore year with no prior exposure to tennis.  She went from no experience to captain of the Valley High School tennis team in three years.  She went from high school player, to after-school coach, to Lead Coach and still coaches with FSSA in both the after-school and Saturday programs.  She has graduated from CSUF with a degree in mathematics and her Secondary Teaching Credential.  In addition, she has just signed her first contract with the SAUSD teaching math and coaching tennis at VHS.  She has serves as a role model for many students to follow.  Since 1980, many students have followed Dulce's lead and have benefitted from FSSA's involvement.  Twelve students currently are #1 or #2 on their respective high school tennis teams.  More important than their growth and success on the tennis courts is their successes in their classrooms.  After graduation, FSSA coaches have gone onto universities with great success.  The following is a breakdown of to where our student coaches have matriculated:  4-UCs, 2-USC, 2-CCs and the five remaining students still attend their respective high schools and maintain GPAs of 3.0 or higher.

Needs Statement

     Our organization needs volunteers who have some tennis experience and who are willing and able to work with our students from 2-5 p.m. during the week and Saturdays primarily in the mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Donations are needed to fund the different programs that our organization operates.  FSSA sponsors tennis league participants at the rate of $125 per participant plus their individual membership in USTA, which is required to play in tournament and competitive league play.  Balls and racquets need to be replaced on a regular basis.  Racquet size varies for different age groups.  FSSA utilizes racquets at 23", 25", and 27" respectively and allows students to grow into the bigger racquets.  In addition, FSSA slow, medium, and high profile ball to match the speed with the skills of play.  Cases of tennis balls average at $75 per case and are always needing to be replaced.  Racquets cost approximately $27 each and need to be replaced periodically.

Programs


After School Tennis

The after-school tennis program has been implemented at Carl Harvey Elementary and Carr and Mendez Intermediate schools for approximately 150 students.  In these programs, students learn the basic skills of tennis through competitive play.  This program is operated 1-3 days per week at each school.  FSSA uses 2 part-time paid staff members and 2-3 peer volunteers who are learning how to work with young students as they develop playing skills.

Budget  $1,800.00
Category  Education, General/Other Afterschool Enrichment
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) At-Risk Populations Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success  The after-school tennis program involves students in structured physical activity that they enjoy and provides them with many opportunities to participate and practice on a regular basis.
Program Long-Term Success 

The program gives students many opportunities to develop their socialization skills while focusing on positive health and fitness.

 

Program Success Monitored By  FSSA's  success is acknowledged by the district's Think Together staff dating back to 2007.  They interact with the students and parents on a daily basis and continue to welcome FSSA's program to their schools.  When tennis is cancelled for inclement weather or other reasons, the students continually ask when they are going to have tennis again.  Tennis continues to be the bright part of their after-school time.
Examples of Program Success   Many students who participated in the after-school program at Harvey Elementary have matriculated to neighborhood intermediate and high schools and continue to participate in the FSSA program at more advanced levels.  Four of the six participants on the Junior Tennis Team began to play tennis in the after-school program at Harvey Elementary.

Saturday Tennis Academy

This program is scheduled on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to Noon on approximately 25 Saturdays during the school year. Nine to ten volunteers participate from participating high schools in the Santa Ana Unified School District. These volunteers earn community service hours and also learn how to become coaches in First Serve's Coaching Development Program.  To date, 25 students have contributed their coaching talents and assisted FSSA in creating its own core of coaches to help teach younger students the basics of tennis.  These coaches are cultivated from the ranks of high school tennis players recruited from within the SAUSD.
Budget  $1,800.00
Category  Education, General/Other Afterschool Enrichment
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) At-Risk Populations Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success 
High school students who get involved in FSSA's Coaching Development Program receive community service credit for high school graduation.  It's relatively easy to do in the sense that they can earn credit right on their own tennis courts.  By participating in this manner, they realize what a role model they can become by simply being an older high school student helping young people.
Program Long-Term Success 
 By getting extra play and participation, students hone their tennis skills to play more competitively as they develop the desire to be  life-long players of tennis. 
 
Program Success Monitored By  FSSA staff members maintain sign-in sheets along with names of parents and students who attend Saturday Tennis Academy days.  Staff members communicate with students and parents regularly. The number of tennis players who participate fluctuates between 15-20. 
Examples of Program Success  Last school year, FSSA sponsored a first ever tennis tournament for students in grades 3-8 and had more than 150 participants in those grade levels.  The tournament accepted anyone who was a student in the SAUSD.  Students who participated in the Saturday Tennis Academy were the top award winners in the tournament.

First Serve Santa Ana Coaching Development Program

FSSA is creating its own core of coaches to help teach younger students the basics of tennis.  These coaches are nurtured and grown from within the ranks of tennis players recruited from high schools within the Santa Ana Unified School District.  To date, 25 students have contributed their coaching talents and helped FSSA increase its outreach to young students throughout the city of Santa Ana.
Budget  $1,500.00
Category  Education, General/Other Afterschool Enrichment
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) At-Risk Populations Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success  High school students who get involved in FSSA's Coaching Development Program receive community service credit for high school graduation.  It's relatively easy to do in the sense that they can earn this credit right on their own tennis courts.  They get to realize what a role model they become by simply being a "big" high school student helping young people.
Program Long-Term Success 
Student/athletes who participate in the coaching development program, many times, learn more about the game by teaching young students the skills to play.  In addition, the high school students report that they get great satisfaction from working with youngsters and never realized that they would be appreciated for their work.
Program Success Monitored By  FSSA's President, Alvin Alaman, is a certified USPTA instructor and all coaches must go through his evaluation of both written and on-court demonstrations. He continues to monitor and provide input to coaches as he observes them in their work with younger students. 
Examples of Program Success 
FSSA's two part-time staff members graduated from two different SAUSD high schools.  They began working with our organization as interns in the coaching development program.  They now work as Lead Coaches who lead tennis sessions at Harvey Elementary and Carr Intermediate Schools.  In addition, one has graduated from CSUF with a major in Psychology and the other is about to graduate with a degree in Mathematics.  They credit the coaching development program as impetus to continue their education and the desire to work with young students.
