Play tennis. Learn and grow together.


Magnuson Park

  • Our tennis and educational after-school program for youth in grades 2-6 takes place two days a week at Mercy Magnuson and Tennis Center Sand Point in Magnuson Park.

  • Our goal at STEF is to provide each of our student-athletes with a positive tennis and overall learning experience. Activities like tennis, writing, directed discovery and more contribute immensely to social and emotional development.

  • At STEF, play and creativity are highly valued because research shows kids who engage in regular physical activity and the arts have better academic outcomes. 

  • STEF programming is provided free of charge to low income families. 

Team Read

  • Our partnership with Sand Point Elementary and Team Read takes place after school two days a week. 

  • Our goal is to introduce students to tennis and keep them physically active and engaged.

  • Following our tennis program, students receive in person tutoring and support to help achieve grade level reading proficiency

  • Kids must attend Sand Point Elementary to be considered and programming is free of charge to families.

No tennis experience or equipment is necessary to participate, we just ask that all participants bring a positive and respectful attitude and that they are open to trying new things!

Note: We will schedule a parent/student meeting before enrollment is confirmed so we can get to know our families. Space in our program is very limited so that each child can have the very best learning and play experience.

We look forward to meeting you.
