OUR MISSION IS TO DEVELOP FEMALE LEADERS THROUGH COACHING TENNIS.
The ability to inspire is an essential skill that is found in great leaders. These leaders are able to infuse energy, passion and connection into their actions and behaviours. A clear vision, mission and commitment to integrity is what guides us in what we do to strive to make the world a better place. Inspire Through Sport is an organization designed to provide programs, courses, resources and hands-on experience to foster inspirational leadership development.
INSPIRE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
HELPING FEMALES FIND THEIR PATHWAY TO SUCCESS
We believe that through tennis, females can gain valuable life experience in a safe environment. They acquire knowledge in goal setting, discipline, independence, time management, responsibility, and so much more. We have created a collaborative environment that brings young females together to learn, grow, and lead. We believe there are various pathways to success and this program will work with each individual to reach their full potential.
